GLERA

The Golden Lane Estate Residents’ Association [GLERA] represents all residents on Golden Lane Estate including City tenants, leaseholder tenants and sub-let tenants of leaseholders and it exists to:

  • Further the common community interests of all Residents of Golden Lane Estate and represent members in dealings with the City of London Corporation, and any other bodies pursuant to those community interests
  • Promote the maintenance and improvement of amenities affecting those members together with the monitoring of all charges
  • Maintain the private status of the Estate

The GLERA committee is made up of tenants and leaseholders with a target of 50/50 representation across leaseholders and tenants. The committee meets at least four times a year.

GLERA has the power to affiliate to any body whose objectives are of benefit to the membership. The GLERA constitution can be found here and the roles and responsibilities of the committee members are summarised here.

Legals

GLERA is a "Recognised Tenants' Association" under relevant legislation (by virtue of the statutory rights granted to its predecessor for leaseholders (GLOA)), including:
  • The Housing Act 1980
  • Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 (Section 29)
  • Leasehold Reform, Housing & Urban Development Act 1993
  • Common & Leasehold Reform Act 2002
This status was granted by the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal as a result of legal action by residents - the functions of the LVT were transferred to the First-Tier Tribunal of the Property Chamber under an Order of Parliament in 2013 but it's decisions remain in force.
Formal recognition with specific regard to the City’s weekly tenants (as opposed to leasehold tenants) was secured when GLERA demonstrated that it met the published requirements of the City for this purpose and was acknowledged as having done so by City Officers.
