Starter Pack

A private road or estate needs an active residents' association or management company to look after the road, protect the interests of residents, and guard against legal disputes.

If your road doesn't have one, don't panic! We can help. Just send for our Starter Pack. You'll receive: 

A copy of Private Roads: The Legal Framework (5th ed.) This is the definitive guide to the law, written for residents associations, management companies and others concerned with private roads. Its approach is clear and practical and it provides a detailed explanation of the issues affecting private roads and estates.

  • A step-by-step guide to what you need to do and why.
  • Helpful precedents, on CD, including model rules for an association, and memorandum and articles of association for a company, and model letters. 

Once you've formed a residents' association or company you can upgrade to membership of PRS: the cost of the Starter Pack can be deducted from your first year's membership fee. Joining PRS will help you to look after your road in the longer term, and to save money.

To order our Starter Pack, please send a cheque for £55, payable to Private Roads Services Ltd, to:

Private Roads Services Ltd
Barnwell Farm
Station Road
OX27 0HN

If you prefer to pay via PayPal (which now also accepts credit and debit cards) just let us know and we will send you a link to enable you to do so.

Under the "Distance Selling" Regulations*, you can return the Starter Pack within 14 days if you are not satisfied with it, and claim a full refund; though you must pay the return postage (2nd class is fine). This doesn't affect your other legal rights. Please note that our Starter Pack is sold subject to our Terms and Conditions.

Copyright: please note. Our Starter Pack is for use only in one specified private road or private estate. For this reason we don't sell copies to firms of solicitors, estate agents or surveyors, developers or other organisations with a wider need. When you place your order, please let us know the name and postcode of the road in question and how many properties there are in the road.
