Walton & Allen are pleased to announce that we have been asked to add two new buildings to the portfolio of developments that we block manage.
We already provide a full range of block management services to over 20 apartment blocks in Nottingham and across the East Midlands. Indeed, we have wide ranging experience of managing large and small developments, including some of our own personally owned apartments. Our block management services include:
- Collecting ground rents and service charges
- Preparing service charge budgets and financial forecasts
- Arranging all flat management functions and negotiating associated contracts
- Supervising building works and contracts covering gardening, cleaning and day-to-day management
- Organising building insurance, including valuations and claims handling
- Arranging site visits
- Liaising with residents on all matters
- Dealing with assignments and notices
- Arranging and attending annual/six monthly meetings
- Preparing year-end accounts and returns
- Providing regular reports to freeholders
Now we are going to be providing these same services to the owners and residents at Gardiners Court in Mansfield Woodhouse, and at Enfield House in the centre of Nottingham.
At Gardiners Court, we were asked to carry out the right to manage process for the apartment owners as they were dissatisfied with the previous managing agent. We acquired the right to manage and the owners then instructed us to manage the building.
At the beautiful Grade 2 listed Enfield House, we took over responsibility for block management with the blessing of the freeholder and apartment owners.
Naturally, we will be managing these buildings and providing services to the same high standard we bring to all of the other developments in our portfolio.
