The Memorandum and Articles of Association will clarify specific requirements for eligibility to become a director of your Residents’ Management Company, including whether or not a non-leaseholder can also become a director.
Directors must also be over 16 years old, cannot have been previously disqualified and must not be an undischarged bankrupt.
Providing you meet these criteria, you can either be elected through a General Meeting of company members or an existing director can nominate you. Once agreed, you will need to complete an AP01 form and submit it to Companies House. You can complete the online form here.
Memorandum and Articles of Association are both public documents. You can search for them on Companies House here.
