1. GET TO KNOW YOUR PROPERTY
We’ll spend a few hours at your property, getting to know it, talking to you and your co-owners, and working out how to run the building properly, and in such a way that address any problems you’ve raised. Based on experience we’ll assess exactly how often cleaners and other suppliers need to attend to keep your building in good condition, and highlight any existing contracts which are unnecessary or overpriced
2. GAIN AN UNDERSTANDING OF YOUR LEASE
We’ll conduct a detailed review of your buildings lease in order to get a full understanding of how charges should be set up and billed at your property (most leases are different). Based on this (and with the help of our solicitor) we’ll also be able to offer you and your co-owners clarity on any legal complexities.
3. FIND THE BEST CONTRACTORS FOR YOUR PROPERTY
Over the next few days we’ll contact and meet candidate companies and tradesmen, for example cleaners and gardeners, and consider with them the issues raised in our discussions with you and your fellow leaseholders. Some of these suppliers will be companies we’re already using, others will be new. Insofar as its possible though, all will be local to the property. We then assess the cost estimates and service proposals we’ve received to decide the best, most cost-effective contractors to look after your building.
4. REPORT BACK TO YOU IN DETAIL
All our findings are presented for your consideration in a bespoke report. Included in this are; projected service charges per leaseholder, our thoughts on how to improve the general management, any relevant information which has been bought to light in the course of our lease review and our collective thoughts on how to address any technical or practical issues you’ve raised
