Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation hand back control of housing to the Council

The Board of the Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation (KCTMO) - which managed Grenfell Tower - have unanimously agreed to hand back management of all housing to Kensington and Chelsea Council.

Last August, KCTMO lost its responsibility for the management of properties in the Lancaster West housing estate, which includes Grenfell Tower.

In September, Kensington and Chelsea councillors unanimously voted to end the contract with the KCTMO, saying the firm "no longer has the trust of residents in the Borough".

The Council have now written to all tenants advising them that it will be taking over repairs, looking after your estates and running the day to day services.

The letter to tenants stresses that "this is only an interim measure - the Council is not taking over for good".

The Council's letter also advises that - the KCTMO will continue to exist as a legal entity so that leaders can be called to the public inquiry and be held to account in any criminal or civil legal proceedings that may take place in the future. p>*****
