Block Management Ltd
Block Management Ltd is a family company which provides a friendly and professional service that we hope will come as a refreshing change to many. We work hard to provide the best service and support possible at a fair price and act as block managing agents for sites in and around Swindon.
Block Management Ltd was originally part of our sister company, Accounting Services Ltd. In 2017, the accountancy and block management sides of the business were separated due to the growth of the individual businesses.
We began our involvement in the property management business in 1993 and have built up a residential portfolio of apartments in the Swindon area. As leaseholders of apartments ourselves, we know the benefit of having an efficient, professional management company who are committed to keeping services charges reasonable.
We pride ourselves on implementing regular, cost-effective maintenance to sites to ensure that sites remain a safe and attractive environment for both leaseholders and tenants. We have a panel of local specialist and general contractors all of whom are vetted by us to ensure the highest standards at sensible prices. All savings made are passed on to leaseholders as we do not accept commissions, kick-backs or any other form of remuneration from service providers.
