Case Studies

BLOCK MANAGEMENT

Gillingham, Kent

South Shore is a new-build block of 42 shared-ownership apartments on the exclusive Victory Pier development in Gillingham, Kent. We consulted with residents who had concerns over the poor management by the current Managing Agent and were also facing huge Section 20 repair bills for work which they deemed unnecessary. We were informed that the Leaseholders had already explored the Right To Manage although they had been advised that as shared-owners they did not qualify for this process.

After our initial consultation process we advised that the Leaseholders did in fact qualify for the Right To Manage and so it was commenced. We secured management rights for the newly formed Right To Manage Company commencing October 2014. The Leaseholders now benefit from being in full control of the Service Charge budget, contractors and repairs. They will also be able to compile their own “planned maintenance” schedule so that repairs are spread over an appropriate length of time to avoid any sudden lump bills.

LUXURY LIVING

Birmingham, West Midlands

Queens College Chambers is a most prestigious development located in the heart of Birmingham, comprising 120 apartments and 2 commercial units. It has been described by many as perhaps one of the most exclusive residences in the City of Birmingham, attracting Premier League footballers and a world renowned musician.

Following a competitive tender process against some of the UK’s largest Managing Agents, Blocsphere were awarded management of the development in December 2015. Upon successful tender, the directors of the Management Company said that they had been impressed with our IT systems infrastructure and style of management. It goes to show that we offer an unrivalled level of service and expertise which can outperform other much larger Managing Agents. It is our great privilege to manage Queens College Chambers and represent it as a beacon of living in the City of Birmingham.
