Leathermarket JMB is working with the Perronet House and Princess Street Residents Association to investigate the possibilities of bringing tenant management to the Southwark Council homes in the Association’s area. This page contains information about the proposals and how management might work.
Tenant management is where council tenants and residents take over the running of the day-to-day services for their home. Typically this would include:
A committee of tenants and residents oversees the work of the staff that do these jobs, setting priorities and making sure the work gets done properly.
Tenant management offers a more responsive, more accountable and more efficient service to all residents (both council tenants and leaseholders).
In tenant management, tenants always remain formally tenants of the Council – and leaseholders formally the Council’s leaseholders – with all the rights and privileges that brings. A move to tenant management is just about the running of services.
Leathermarket JMB is a nationally-acclaimed and award winning Tenant Management Organisation that runs 1500 homes in Borough and Bermondsey and has been operating since 1996. Resident satisfaction much greater in JMB estates than for Southwark-managed estates.
