Lease and Legislation

We act and advise Landlords and directors of RTMs and RMCos on their legal obligations, ensuring their exposure to legal and financial risks are minimised. We understand how decisions made can be influenced and shaped by the lease, statutes, and (for directors) the Companies Act 2006.

Breaches of lease can be handled as swiftly and sensitively as possible, whilst ensuring the interests of the Landlord are upheld.

Financial Management

Service charge management is arguably the most important and contentious element of residential management. We recognise clear communication and transparency is essential. Our online portal allows all parties to view their service charges and payments at any time. As RICS members we operate a Client Money Protection Scheme, reassuring leaseholders their money is fully protected. In addition all monies are kept in client trust bank accounts.

We operate a robust arrears management procedure minimising arrears and ensuring maintenance of the building is not undermined by cashflow shortfalls.

Insurance

We offer a complete insurance service. Not only do we obtain competitive premiums, appropriate for the building and leases, we monitor for breaches ensuring the insurance policy does not become void.

Maintenance and Repair

Included under the management agreement is day to day reactive maintenance and repairs. As soon as the client or leaseholders log an issue or fault we attend to these immediately, utilising contractors from our Approved Contractor Register.

We recognise major works are capital intensive, forming part of long term maintenance plans. Given the nature of these works the planning needs the involvement and agreement of clients, with all parties adequately consulted at appropriate times, we manage this process during the lifecycle.

Asset Management

We ensure the property is compliant with the statutory health and safety requirements. Working with the client we proactively put in place a Preventative Maintenance Plan, oversee the resulting capital expenditure programme to maintain the value of the property.

Caretaker, Porter and Concierge

Our management team is highly experienced in employment of on site support staff, where leases allow or call for such a provision. We take on the responsibilities of direct employment of staff, mitigating the risks involved for the Landlord, or directors of RTMs or RMCos.
