Leasehold Block Management
Managing a block of flats is surrounded by complex and often overlooked legislation. We are able to advise and work accordingly within the parameters of legislation ensuring that works are undertaken both responsibly and legally. Working with specialist companies, we are able to advise and undertake works to ensure that your legal obligations are met. This, in turn, ensures that your building does not encounter issues and delays when trying to sell an apartment and we are very proud to say that we provide detailed and comprehensive information within our sellers packs, often with a covering report which ensures that your apartment sells without delay.
The approach of Leasehold Block Management is to adopt a policy of rapid response where necessary and offer a 24 hour emergency telephone line to provide reassurance that help is at hand should the need arise. We carefully select contractors who are appropriate for the works. We have a comprehensive selection of contractors ranging from sole traders to contractors who are able to undertake works for contracts exceeding £1 million.
We approach our work as if we are looking after our own building. We carefully select the correct contractor for the work in hand which, in turn, leads to economic repairs being undertaken by craftsmen, some of whom we have worked with for fifteen years.
We work in partnership with Legal Specialists, Accountants, Structural Engineers, Building Surveyors, Planning and Health & Safety consultants to provide you with a point of contact where every task can be undertaken.
