Richard Davidoff has failed to stop leaseholders from getting right to manage at a block of flats in Battersea, south London, that has a residents’ management company but of which Mr Davidoff is the sole director.
The property tribunal made the decision on 26 October 2021, which predates last week’s decision by the trade body ARMA (Association of Residential Managing Agents) to expel Richard Davidoff’s ABC Block Management Limited from its membership.
ARMA’s decision followed a property tribunal ruling in August that Richard Davidoff had ‘breached his fiduciary duties’ as a court appointed manager at another site in south London:
Richard Davidoff, of ABC Estates, ‘breached his fiduciary duties’ after disastrous performance as a court-appointed manager, rules property tribunal
LKP has repeatedly asked Siobhan McGrath, the chamber president of the property tribunal, whether Mr Davidoff has other section 24 appointments as an officer of the property tribunal and whether he is still eligible for the role.
Aggrieved leaseholders show clandestine video recordings among wealth of evidence presented to win over the judge

A freeholder’s wheeze of monetising a car park at a block of flats for all comers and dumping the running costs on the leaseholders has been called out in the property tribunal.
As a result, controversial freeholder Israel Moskovitz may have to pay as much as £103,323 in management, CCTV, general maintenance, refuse removal and cleaning charges – and won’t get any of his legal fees.
