Ariston Property provides a comprehensive block management service for freeholders of residential apartment buildings.

Our management is tailored to meet the specific requirements of each freeholder.

While we manage blocks in a number of London areas, we are particularly experienced in the North London areas around Archway, Hornsey Rise, Highgate, Holloway, Finsbury Park and Crouch End.

Service Charge management

Service Charge management

We deal with all matters related to the administation and collection of the Service Charge.

This includes calculating annual Estimated Expenditure, and collecting the charge, on the quarterly or bi-annual dates as defined in the the lease.

We prepare Annual Accounts for auditing purposes and for certification in respect of the Service Charges by either your own auditors or by us. Once Audited Accounts have been produced, we deal with the recovery of any outstanding Excess Service Charges.

 

Block facilities management

We look after all aspects of the running and maintenance of your block.

This may include overseeing and management of caretakers or any other staff employed at the property, along with handling of all wage payments and PAYE calculations. 

We arrange and oversee both minor and major repair works. Major works fall outside of the scope of our regular Block Management Agreement, and a separate fee is agreed and charged for these. Where appropriate, we instruct specialist surveyors to oversee major or specialised works. When managing major works, we prepare Section 20 Notices as required by the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 (Amended by Section 151 of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002).  

We arrange regular inspection of blocks under our management. Our surveyors carry out bi-annual inspection to assess the need for upcoming major repairs and to evaluate the level of insurance cover required.  

A 24 hour emergency service is available for all block management clients.

Lessee liaison

We carry comprehensive Professional Indemnity Insurance, with cover documentation is available by arrangement for your inspection.
