Block Management

Please see below some information about our Block Management services as well as a few frequently asked questions.

Why Employ A Block Manager To Look After Your Flats?

In many cases the responsibility for the upkeep and administration of a Residential Block is left to the residents who, through no fault of their own, may have little experience in property management or the complexities related to the running of a Limited Company. A competent Block Manager can take care of these responsibilities and ensure professionalism and integrity. Nicholas George Ltd offer a complete Block Management service, which takes care of the day to day management of blocks of all sizes.


How Much Will It Cost?

All Residential Blocks are individual and have different specific requirements. We would be pleased to attend and assess your Block, meet the property owners if required, and detail our services, giving a brief appraisal of the building’s requirements as well as a budget. This can all be undertaken without any obligation or up-front cost.


How Can I Switch From My Current Block Manager If I Have One?

The process of switching Block Manager will vary depending on the your Block and the way Block Management is detailed in your Lease documentation. We may ask you for a copy of your lease in order to advise you on the process and will be happy to guide and help you every step of the way.


Why Nicholas George Ltd?

We have received numerous amounts of feedback over the years from people dissatisfied with their current Block Managers, who generally seem to be larger, faceless firms. Comments have related generally to poor service, poor condition of the Block’s communal areas, bad communication and unjustified & unreasonable charges. Nicholas George Ltd are a smaller, truly independent, family-run firm. Our approach to Block Management is different – we take a more personal and professional approach and aim to develop positive relationships with property owners, who will have their own designated point of contact.
