The constitution
Kensington & Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation’s (KCTMO) constitution consists of Articles of Association filed at Companies House. The company was incorporated on 20 April 1995.

The Company: Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation Limited is a company limited by guarantee. This means that it does not have share capital or shareholders.

Objects: A company must state in its constitution what it has been set up to do. The objects of KCTMO include managing the council housing stock of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) and providing management services to other organisations. In addition, KCTMO has wide ranging powers to promote resident participation both within the borough and more generally, and to enter into contracts for the benefit of the organisation.

Membership: Membership is open to any tenant or leaseholder, including non-resident leaseholders over 18 years old who occupy or own premises which are managed by KCTMO. We also have associate members (a child of a tenant, over 18 years old, who is living with the tenant), who may be invited to attend but cannot vote at an annual general meeting or at general meetings.

Management of KCTMO: Ultimate responsibility for management rests with KCTMO’s board, which consists of up to 15 members. There are eight elected resident board members, four members appointed by RBKC and up to three additional independent members. A resident board member is a tenant or leaseholder who has been elected as such.
