Block management is the process of managing the communal areas of residential properties through the service charge. Managing a block requires a professional approach, time and dedication.
Block management involves constant communication with various contractors in respect of maintenance and repairs, insurance of the building and, in some cases, provision of central heating, lifts, porterage, estate staff, lighting and cleaning of common areas.
It also requires a good understanding of legislation and leasehold matters, preparation of budgets and annual accounts, as well as routine inspections to check that the property is in good order.
A major part of a role in block management is ensuring that the landlord and leaseholders get value for money for their service charge payments, and the building is maintained in accordance with the terms of the lease.
With a growing portfolio of Block we manage, we are happy to tailor our services to meet any necessary requirements, on a block by block basis.
