We cateR for all
Day to Day
GH Property Management Services remove the worry and liability of the day to day management tasks. We are a customer focused block management company and we believe that positive lines of communication between us and clients are vitally important.
At GH Property Management we have positive relationships with all of our contractors and those responsible for gardening and grounds maintenance share in our belief that first impressions of their development are of paramount importance. All grounds maintenance programmes are customised to meet the requirements of particular properties as well as the changing times of year.
We have regular communication with all of our cleaning contractors so as to allow them opportunities to share feedback on individual properties. We recognise that cleaning impacts on wear and tear, pests and odours so we recognise the importance of keeping buildings in good order both for the purpose of finances as well as the comfort of residents.
It is of paramount importance to us to ensure that all buildings are well maintained. We carry out regular inspections of every site, and complete reports, with photographic evidence, both for our own records and for the benefit of the client, and with discussion with them as and when necessary, and to ensure that short, medium and long term progress can be monitored and evaluated.
We take the stress of dealing with insurance away from the Freeholders and leaseholders. As a policy is due for renewal, we review and source the best available insurance policies and quotations to ensure properties are adequately covered for the best possible premium.
Accounting & Financial
Each property has an individual annual service charge budget. The budget is available to all parties and aims to take into account all anticipated work required on the building for the year ahead.
Service Charge Accounts
GH Property Management is responsible for collecting Ground Rent, service charges and reserve funds. We ensure that each block has its own dedicated bank account for the collection of such charges. At the end of each service charge year, full service charge accounts are drawn up and are made available for inspection by the Freeholder and leaseholders. Bank statements and reports are readily available to clients upon request.
We have an in-depth knowledge of the budget for each property and we recognise how essential it is to have sufficient funds. We have a stringent collection policy and at times it is necessary for legal debt recovery action to be taken.
