What do you need to know about block or estate management?
A block or estate manager has a lot of positions to cover, including billing and collecting service charges, the pursuit of arrears, communication with leaseholders and quickly responding to repair and maintenance requests. With so much to cover, you should make sure that your choice has experience working with similarly sized properties to yours, and that customer feedback for their services is positive. It is a good sign if the business is linked to a national tradesman’s association such as the Association of Residential Management Agents (ARMA), as such groups usually enforce strict standards and codes of conduct for their members.
Block management quotes will usually be calculated ‘per unit’, with prices varying depending on the property’s location in the UK. It is important to check the policies in place for your choice, not just regarding insurance but also with regards to environmental management, accounting and transparency. Ask if they outsource work of any kind, and whether this will incur costs for you. You should be able to get a free assessment for your property - if this is the case it is good to get as many quotes as possible to compare, including price breakdowns.
