The Fair Community Housing Services (FCHS) tenant management organisation (TMO) was created in 2004 and is a Friendly Society registered under the provisions of the Industrial and Provident Societies Act 1965. The aims and objectives of the company are for the benefit of the community.
The age and makeup of our estates vary, ranging from Victorian built blocks to 60’s built estates. In total, FCHS manage 558 properties. The freehold is owned by the Southwark Council. Approximately 65% are council tenants and 35% are leaseholders.
A tenant management organisation (TMO) is an organisation set up under the UK Government’s Housing (Right to Manage) Regulations 1994, which allows residents of council housing to take a more active role in managing their communities by creating Tenant Management Organisations with delegated management and maintenance responsibilities.
