How to find a good block management company

What is Block Management

A block manager will take care of the common spaces in apartment complexes, housing projects, or office buildings when each unit is privately owned and self-managed.

A block frequently has a specified management agent who is in charge of providing a range of services to keep the block in excellent condition. This designated management agent will make sure that any external contractors provide good service and are cost-effective.

If you own or rent an apartment, you are probably already paying service fees to a block management firm that takes care of the building’s maintenance, general upkeep, and insurance. If you are unhappy with the service provided by your block management company, you might not realise how simple it is to switch companies.

How easy is it to change?

We usually need around 3 months’ notice; however, you may need to check with your current provider and confirm if this is different in your current contract.

We treat each and every site with the upmost integrity and deliver a level of professionalism that you can rely on. If your current development needs a new block management company, we will ensure a swift transition with minimal input from the freeholder.

The block manager’s strong communication and rapport may be utilised to mediate any conflicts between people who live in the same building, as well as between renters and their landlords.
