Square pegs and round holes: Forming a resident Management Company at Ashfields

This summary report and final working paper have been produced by the Housing and Research Group at the University of Birmingham.

They look at the establishment of a Resident Management Company at Ashfields, a Housing& Care 21 leasehold retirement housing scheme in Shropshire.

Based on interviews with residents and directors, they suggest that leasehold retirement housing could continue to be an attractive option for residents if it allows consumers to make key decisions about key aspects of service design.
