Welcome to Solutions for Property
Block Management Services
CHANGE IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK
Solutions for Property have a proven track record in delivering positive change for leaseholders.
Our unique way of managing allows us, in conjunction with the leaseholders, to create a bespoke agreement that suits the needs of each individual site.
Our whole philosophy is built around transparency by putting emphasis on trust. We understand that words are easy but how is that trust actually achieved?
We openly encourage the Residents Management Company to open their own bank account so they have first-hand knowledge of where their service charge is being spent and what’s being held in reserve. Due to the banking information always being available, there is never any uncertainty about finance.
The Resident Directors sign-off and pay a monthly invoice from Solutions for Property that covers all costs. That removes unexpected expenditure as all costs are agreed in advance and only paid once agreed.
We post all documents relating to the management onto a secure on-line site so that all leaseholders can be kept up to date. This is a great benefit to our overseas leaseholders.
We organise and facilitate half year and full year residents meetings. We ensure all leaseholders have the ability to bring ideas and concerns to the table.
We work closely with the Resident Directors with regard to maintenance. All maintenance costs are agreed and signed off before any work takes place.
We agree a realistic annual budget taking into consideration all known and potential costs…a good budget is essential to having financial stability.
It’s our goal to answer all phone calls. In the unlikely event we can’t, we guarantee to call back before the end of the day. We also guarantee all emails are responded to with in one working day.
These are just some of the processes we have in place that are fundamental to our operation.
Contact us for a no-obligation consultation to understand if we could be the alternative you have been looking for.
The effective collection of Service Charge payments from leaseholders is integral to minimising
the pressures of financially managing a site. Solutions for Property have tried and tested methods of making payments as stress free as possible as we know that everyone has different economic circumstances.
So what makes us different?
We give the option of allowing the Residents Management Company the ability of facilitating their bank account. In most circumstances, this is with the added benefit of on-line banking making payments and administration as simple as possible. All we ask is that we have ‘read-only’ capability to assist in tracking payments.
We allow payment to be made on a monthly, half yearly or annual basis. We have proved that contributions are less likely to fall behind if people can choose the payment frequency.
Annual budgets are agreed at the beginning of the financial year and are only amended by majority vote during the Annual General Meeting. We know that a clear and accurate budget in which everyone signs up to is more likely to reduce non-payments
We track service charges on a monthly basis and work with those who are having difficulties. We deal with leaseholders on a personal level and never have to use tough tactics to ensure payments. By delivering a great service, most never fall behind as there is clear evidence of where their money is being spent.
We always aim to build a ‘reserve fund’ to ensure that there are monies to complete any works without having to issue a Section 20.
We have proved that having our own team brings significant financial and operational benefits. Being able to complete gardening, cleaning and general repairs at the same time reduces operational costs which are passed back to the leaseholders. So, for example, it means that a separate van and driver does not need to be dispatched to collect large discarded items of furniture; this will be addressed whilst the team are already there.
We also offer discounts for leaseholders for any works that may be required within their own properties. This extends to painting, general repair, kitchen and bathroom installations being just a few of the services on offer. All work is guaranteed and fully insured.
What some of our clients say
Sarah/ Owner, Sellwood Drive
What has impressed us about S4P is that they deals with issues and problems so quickly, and is always available (either email or phone) to contact if we need something dealt with. Also, if Steve is away for any length of time, he always has someone in place to assist if there are any problems, and always informs us if he won't be around so that we know who to speak to.
