BLOCK MANAGEMENT EXPLAINED

Block management is known by different names in the property industry. You may have heard of block management described as leasehold management, property management or estate management (to name a few). Block Management is where a building block, made up of either residential flats or commercial offices, is managed by a block management specialist like us to ensure the smooth running of the building as a whole. Our expert service can be given right from the planning and development stages of your London Block Building construction to offer expert advice on the planning of communal spaces. Alternatively, we can come on board to smooth out processes once a block building is already being leased in London, either residential or commercially.

Managing a block of flats in London is just like managing a business. You need to be committed to the job, but you also need to have the necessary skills to carry out essential tasks, both practical and legal. Our expert team has an outstanding understanding of legislation and leasehold matters. This means the more complicated legal aspects of running a block building in London, including the preparation of budgets, recovery of service charges and annual accounts, are taken care of. Effective Block management involves constant communication with various contractors to ensure everyone in the building is kept happy. Strong working relationships with trusted, expert contractors mean that all maintenance and repairs and insurance of the building will be carried out to the highest standards. Here at Westcolt, we have excellent relationships with the best contractors in London.

We aim to provide an unrivalled quality service while also ensuring that our landlords get the best value for money for maintenance so that their block building can be as profitable as possible. Read more on why you should hire a block management agent here.

PRACTICAL AND LEGAL COVERED

We take care of the day-to-day tasks such as ensuring communal spaces are kept clean, lifts are working, gardens are well kept, and all general maintenance is underhand. Having Westcolt on board also means that your London Block Building will have legal aspects covered such as all financial management. We can help organise and agree on an annual budget with a board of directors, attend AGM meetings, and ensure all service charges are calculated and collected from tenants, including the recovery of service charges in arrears.

These works can range from but are not restricted to:

  • Internal Cleaning
  • External Cleaning
  • Gardening
  • Tree care
  • Emergency works such as plumbing and electricians
  • Painting and Decorating
