Successful block management isn’t just about keeping the carpets clean and the residents onside. It’s a long-term strategic process aimed at taking care of your property, improving its value, and creating a sense of community, so that it’s a great place to live in every sense. And if that all sounds like a lot of work, don’t worry – that’s where we come in.

Your management accounts underpin everything you do with your property – so it’s critical that they’re accurate, detailed and regularly available. Our team of financial fixers provide quarterly accounts as standard, with a detailed explanation of any variances, so you’re always up to date with what’s going out and coming in and can plan ahead with confidence.
Our Package Includes:
Repairs, maintenance & refurbishment
When it comes to looking after your property, we take as much pride as we would in our own home – and we make sure anyone we employ does too. We carry out regular, thorough inspections, allowing us to plan and budget for any work that needs doing and fix small problems before they become big ones. And we take time to ensure that your lessees buy in to any changes we make, from smartening up hallways and stairs to replanting communal gardens.
Lease & legal support
Understanding the finer points of leases, and the best way to implement them, takes experience and skill – and we have a great deal of both. We begin every new block management contract with a complete lease review, from which we put together a handbook that explains what everyone’s roles and responsibilities are. And if issues or questions arise, we work with you to interpret the rules intelligently and find innovative, workable solutions.
The more money you spend on communal water, gas and electricity, the less you can use to enhance your investment. So we work closely with our team of brokers to explore all the providers, investigate all the options and get you the best possible deal, leaving you with a surplus to invest back into your property.
Block management requires a lot of different kinds of insurance – so getting the best deal can have a huge impact on your balance sheet. We’ve built strong relationships with the industry’s market leaders, allowing us to negotiate competitive policies that cut costs, not cover. And our proactive, pragmatic approach means we deliver the best possible outcome if things go wrong; as experience has shown, we can make an impossible claim possible.
Types of policies we provide include:
It may not be the most exciting part of managing a property, but company secretarial tasks do need to be done, and done properly. Our specialist block management team have a forensic attention to detail and dates, and will do everything from sending out your notices and filing your documentation to submitting your confirmation statement, efficiently and painlessly. And if a complex legal matter comes up, you can trust us to take care of it, as we know company law back to front.
Regulation & Compliance
Regulation and compliance is about people as much as laws – and managing people is one of our strengths. We work hard to create a sense of community in the properties we look after, which makes it easier to come up with mutually agreeable solutions when people step outside the rules. And of course, because we’re on top of it, you don’t have to be.
