Our 35+ years' in block management goes way beyond just maintaining living spaces - we have built a knowledge bank that covers everything a well maintained block needs in order to be safe, compliant, expertly maintained and financially managed. Apartment blocks under our management have scheduled cleaning and general maintenance, including redecoration of entrances and hallways and ensuring machinery and lifts have regular risk assessments. The safety of staff and residents is always high on the list, with H&S services provided by our Group support network.
Apartment blocks have evolved into complex buildings, often with additional and specific considerations such as leisure facilities, function rooms and concierge parcel tracking - and we have the right systems and processes in place to deliver whatever is required.
We understand what our clients and residents are looking for in terms of maintaining the highest standards of living. Apartments are sold on a Leasehold tenure and come in many shapes, sizes, and locations, from new build blocks to converted warehouses, to commercial premises. When you purchase a leasehold apartment you're purchasing everything internal beyond your front door, including a balcony if you have one.
It's the freeholder that usually owns the whole building from top to bottom including the land the building stands on. The freeholder is usually the person responsible for the maintenance and any repair works required for the general upkeep of the building. These costs are recoverable through the service charges that the leaseholders pay annually.
