Reasons to Choose Maunder Taylor as Your Residential Block Managers


Posted by Mario Theodorou in Blog

If you own a block of flats, you are effectively running your own little business that requires you to have a wide skill set as well as a lot of time to devote to the job.

Here, Maunder Taylor, who provide high-quality residential block management services in Potters Bar, Brookmans Park, Hatfield, Welwyn Garden City, St. Albans, Watford, Cheshunt as well as other parts of London, look at some the key reasons why it is worth using us to help shoulder this responsibility.

Our Professional Qualifications and Expertise

At Maunder Taylor, we pride ourselves on our expertise and professional qualifications. That is why we are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA), and all our property managers belong to the Institute of Residential Property Managers (IRPM).

In addition, all of our staff are continually working and training to improve both professionally and personally.

Our Wide Range of Services

Residential block management isn’t just about the main building, it also includes outside areas such as car parks and communal gardens. Landords are responsible for the communal areas within the main building too. This doesn’t just mean kitchens and shared living spaces, but access points such as lifts and staircases, and ensuring that these areas are well lit and maintained.

With so much to look after, little details can easily be overlooked and missed, as can some of the larger details if you do not have a handyman or network of tried and trusted traders.

Maunder Taylor can sort all of these things out for you so that you can relax and concentrate on what’s important for you knowing all the while that your property is in safe hands.

Administrative Compliance

Being a residential block manager means keeping up to date with the latest Health and Safety regulations relating to:

  • gas and electricity supplies;
  • other utilities;
  • fire hazards;
  • asbestos;
  • COSHH – the Control of Substances (that are) Hazardous to Health – a 2002 Act which protects employees at work;
  • and legionella and other public health issues.

This could be a full-time job in its own right. Would you really fancy taking all this on yourself?

By choosing Maunder Taylor we will ensure that all the paperwork for your property is kept up to date and complies with all of the latest regulatory changes. This also includes accounting, meaning that all the bills for any work done will be paid promptly and in full.

Our Emphasis on Co-operation

At Maunder Taylor, we represent a wide variety of different clients, including resident management companies, Right To Manage companies, freehold companies and investor landlords.

We also realise that any disputes can be counter-productive for the long-term relationship between the leaseholders and freeholders (landlords and tenants), and that different parties may have different objectives and interests. For that reason, it is good to use a management service such as Maunder Taylor who will act rationally, fairly and professionally at all times regardless of the dispute. We appreciate that this is something that may be incredibly difficult to achieve as an individual in the heat of the moment.
