Running a residential block and dealing with tenants is time consuming and skilled work - especially when it comes down to learning and understanding the ins and outs of constantly changing legislation and regulations. If you are a landlord or in charge of a residential block, you may have heard that getting a residential block manager’s help could save you a lot of hassle. But what do residential block managers actually do? And why might you need one? Keep reading to find out.
Regular site visits
Our residential block managers will make regular site visits to monitor a building on behalf of landlords. These site visits are absolutely crucial to spot issues before they develop. Preventative measures are key to keeping costs low and renting tenants happy.
Upkeep and maintenance
We will take care of any and all upkeep and maintenance jobs around the block, inside and out. Roofing, windows, walls, lifts and even gardens - our expert block managers can take care of it all without you having to deal with any of the hassle. Keeping on top of these day to day maintenance jobs is one of the most effective ways of avoiding complaints and making your tenant’s living situations as smooth and carefree as possible.
Insurance and claims
Residential block managers will make sure your block is covered by the best insurance available, and will also keep your policy renewed and updated so you can rest assured that you will always be covered. In addition to this, we will deal with any insurance claims which come up along the way, making sure you get the very best deals.
Health and safety compliance
Health and safety regulations are constantly shifting and changing and it can be a nightmare to stay on top of all the updates and periodic reviews, monitoring and risk assessments. A residential block manager can take all of that worry off your shoulders and give you peace of mind that you won’t be caught out.
As a landlord you may not have the accounting experience required to balance your block’s budget and keep track of all your outgoing and incoming finances. A block manager could do all of that for you whilst keeping the meticulous notes which are legally required to document your accounts. All of your expenditure on repairs, employees and contractors along with the regular collection of service fees can be taken care of. This is just the tip of the iceberg of what a residential block manager could do for you. And at Plymouth Block Management we are members of ARMA (Association of Residential Managing Agents) so you can be sure we will work to the very highest standards of exceptional block management, with your best interests at heart.
