Kilburn Vale Estate Tennants' And Residents' Association
Know the difference between our TRA (Tenants’ and Residents’ Association) and the RTA (Recognised Tenants’ Association). These clarifications have come to light in 2015 – there has been much confusion on this in the past.
All Council Tenants and Leaseholders who LIVE ON the estate are automatically members of the TRA. In this instance, “tenants” refers to the Council Tenants and “residents” refers to Leaseholders who live on the estate.
Non-resident Leaseholders and their private tenants are allowed to attend TRA meetings but are not allowed to vote on any financial matters.
All leaseholders, whether living on the estate or non-resident (renting out their property) are allowed to be part of the Leaseholders Association which Camden refers to as an RTA. In this instance, “recognised” means that it is recognised by Camden. The use of the word “tenants” in this title refers to the leaseholders as Camden’s tenants because Camden is their landlord.
All Council tenants and private tenants are allowed to attend RTA meetings but are not allowed to vote.
Most of the Leaseholders who live on the estate are members of both the TRA and RTA.
Most of the non-resident Leaseholders are members of the RTA
There is no cost to be a member of the TRA.
There is currently no cost to be a member of the RTA but this may change in the future so as to cover admin costs.
