When you buy an apartment - or sometimes a freehold house - within a development, there are common factors that need to be maintained. In an apartment block for example, the hallways need to be cleaned, a lift will need to be serviced and maybe the exterior or parts of the building will need to be repainted/maintained from time to time. In a housing development, garden areas will need to be maintained and in some cases security gates will require maintenance.
All of this will typically be documented in a lease (for an apartment) or TP1 (for a freehold house), and all of these obligations will need to be organised by someone. A maintenance plan will need to be developed, a budget will need to be prepared, funds need to be raised and various tradespeople need to be contracted and all managed in accordance with the lease and the law. This is the role of the estate manager or managing agent and this is where you hand over and rely on our expertise.
We work closely with developers at each and every stage, and across every type of residential block, including those that incorporate freehold units and mixed-use developments. Our involvement can begin from the outset - well in advance of the planned handover.
By bringing us in at the early planning stages of your build, we can offer expert pre-instruction advice on design and construction issues that may affect the future management of the property, helping you to avoid situation before they ever occur.
