Residential Block Management
Residential block management is the process of managing the communal areas of residential properties through a service charge. At Carling Jones we believe that managing a block of flats or a residential estate requires a professional approach, time and dedication which involves constant communication with various contractors in respect of maintenance and repairs, insurance of the building and, in some cases, provision of central heating, lifts, estate staff, lighting and cleaning of common areas. Good residential block management also requires an understanding of legislation and leasehold matters, preparation of budgets and annual accounts, as well as routine inspections to check that the property is in good order.
A major part of a role in block management is ensuring that the landlord or residents association get value for money for their service charge payments, and the building is maintained in accordance with the terms of the lease. We pride ourselves on providing property management services at a competitive price enabling service charges to be kept at a minimum whilst providing the highest level of customer service.
Why Use Carling Jones?
Carling Jones is a regulated firm of the RICS and we follow the RICS service charge residential management code. Mark Carling is a Chartered Surveyor and takes the lead with all of our block management instructions.

For every instruction Mark will undertake an initial property survey that will identify any issues with regards to:
- The structure

Our role to arrange the highest quality services at an economic cost means that we only contract work to qualified contractors who have a proven track record and provide best value for money.

Excellent service, efficient, friendly and professional. Mark couldn’t have been more helpful, even showing us around the property on his way home from work. Would highly recommend. Why not try small and local rather than one of the bigger chains.
