We pride ourselves on the reputation and branding that we have achieved amongst the freeholders and leaseholders of residential blocks; being able to manage a portfolio of small blocks through to large purpose-built blocks and estates. This has only come about through years of specialism, a hardworking ethos and transparent service. Underlying all this is a determination to ensure a comfortable living environment for all leaseholders and residents in the blocks and estates we manage.
Likewise, our services are tailored to the requirements of each individual site. Therefore, we do not operate a one-size fits all approach.

Also, we liaise with all parties at a handover by developers or management to ensure individual requirements and concerns are taken care of and our services adapted accordingly. Ensuring, as far as possible that services are not disrupted and that all financial accounting aspects are reconciled and agreed. Block management is a challenging role in meeting the needs of clients, residents, legislation and financial requirements.
