The services we provide to residents and owners is in a nutshell is making sure the communal areas are clean, tidy and in a good state of repair, helping to keep the estate a nice place to live. Communicating well with residents and managing cash flow for the best interests of the site for today and for the future.
We also work in accordance to the lease which can impact the services we provide. For example we have come across leases that state the owners themselves are to clean the windows and not the management company.

Without being a bah humbug with the run up to Christmas, its wise to keep in mind that burglary increases at this time of year. A combination of darker nights and the potential of gifts inside the property. Its a busy time of year but take a few moments to think of the security of your home.
Here are some tips to help keep your home safe this Christmas-
How many times do we take alarms for granted??
Yesterday when a resident heard an alarm from inside an apartment she luckily took notice, She had previously seen the resident leave the apartment block and could start to smell smoke. She called us and then the emergency services were called.
The communal alarms went off and everyone evacuated safely.
The fire service attended and there was no damage done.
We would like to thank the resident and we are pleased this situation was dealt with efficiently and effectively for the safety of all residents.
Also a reminder if you do hear alarms remember…it could be for real.
