The management of blocks of flats
(for residents' associations or management companies)

This is an area which particularly requires knowledge and experience in dealing with the legal formalities both when there is a change of ownership of a unit and in dealing with the necessary Companies House requirements if there is a limited company involved.

Charges: 15% of the gross maintenance charges/ground rents collected plus VAT providing that there are at least 8 units; smaller blocks are at the reat of £120 per unit plus VAT.

This would include:

  • all aspects of the day to day running of the block, i.e. dealing with the cleaning and gardening arrangements and paying all communal accounts.
  • dealing with insurance of the block.
  • keeping accounts and submitting these to the association's/company's auditor.
  • corresponding with solicitors upon a disposal of a unit.
  • inspecting the building on a regular basis and advising of any necessary repairs.
  • submitting the annual return/annual accounts to companies house if appropriate.
  • holding an annual general meeting and intermediate meetings if required.
