This Guidance Note explains the usual model rules governing AGMs and GMs but you should refer to the specific Articles of the company concerned.

Except where specifically mentioned all references to Resident Management Companies (RMCs) include reference to Right to Manage Companies (RTM Companies).

It is a statutory requirement that every company has Memorandum and Articles of Association. Right to Manage companies have their own prescribed Articles of Association which are based on those for companies limited by guarantee and which are without share capital.
