X Major Works Property management comes with many challenges and trials, and it’s important to know how to deal with these issues when they occur. Major works can include large-scale replacements or planned development work, such as a new roof or replacing windows. These kind of works involve a lot of communication and understanding between tenants, landlords and managing agents. Tenders and draft schedules must be produced, detailing the proposed work. Where work proposed would cost an individual service charge payer more than £250, consultations must be made and landlords must serve a notice of intention. This can be a complicated process and involves a lot of legal work. Call a member of our friendly team today to find out more advice and more information on major works. X Building Surveys As with all forms of business, it’s important to maintain and preserve the respectable standard that your clients and customers expect. In terms of property management, regular building surveys can ensure that the life expectancy of your building improves. This process allows for any anticipated repairs or replacements, predicting challenges for the future and how to tackle them. Having a planned preventative maintenance programme in place takes the emphasis away from attending emergency call-outs, as these should lessen with the plan in place. Reviewing your maintenance, repairs, and replacements plans each year will enable you to see any patterns that emerge throughout particular seasons and times of year, which can then help you develop a more comprehensive service charge budget. If you need more advice on how to carry out a building survey, then contact us today and we can guide you through the process. X Service Charge Management for residential blocks, commercial blocks and estates It can often be difficult to maintain and manage service charges within your property and disputes can arise. Ensuring that you have an outlined agreement on which areas the landlord and tenant are responsible for is vital to running a successful business. The more ambiguous your lease agreement, the harder it is to enforce service charges to residents or landlords. Hexagon Property can make this process as smooth as possible by managing your day-to-day service charge commitments and requirements, drafting budgets for head of expenditure, arranging service charge certification, and managing any debts that may need recovering. You will also need to consider legal items, such as landlord and tenants acts or fire regulations, before this kind of document is put together.
