Flats and their management are big business in the property world. The number of apartments added to Royal Mail’s Postcode Address File (PAF) jumped by 18 per cent between April and December last year, meaning that flats now make up 25 percent of property in the U.K.  But with growth, comes pain.
1/ Educate Leaseholders
It might sound obvious but many leaseholders aren’t sure what responsibilities their freeholder or their managing agent have to them. Leaseholders are also unaware of how much of a say they have in the day-to-day running of communal areas. Educating leaseholders in a positive way about their rights will clear up any grey areas. It should also improve any misplaced hostility caused by leaseholders who expect things that managing agents have no responsibility to deliver.
2/ Increased transparency
3/ Improved consultation
4/ Better Communication
5/ Swifter Action
