What is a Block Management Company?

Block management is a term used to describe a company that manages the communal areas of a block, or estate, on behalf of others. This management includes the cleaning, maintenance, and general upkeep of communal areas, as well as financial and legal services. Read on to learn more about block management with Valor Properties.

What is a Block Management Company?

Block management companies are responsible for maintaining shared spaces, such as hallways, courtyards, and gardens in residential or commercial blocks. This could be blocks of flats, residential developments, or perhaps shared office buildings.

Block management companies may also be referred to as leasehold management, estate management, and remote property management.

How Does Block Management Work?

A block management company can be hired to look after communal areas of blocks of flats, residential property developments, or office buildings, where each unit is individually owned and self-managed.

Often, there will be a named managing agent responsible for a block that is tasked with carrying out a number of services to keep the block in good order. Such tasks as cleaning communal areas, and gardening work, repairs and maintenance, and concierge duties may be outsourced by the block manager, who will ensure that contractors work effectively, and are value for money.

Similarly, a block management company will assume responsibility for financial and legal matters in relation to communal areas of the block.
