Block Management

Helping our customers to have a great place to live

Ainsworth Lord Estates in partnership with SDL Property Management is a residential managing agent on a journey to transform our business and make the industry a better place for people living in leasehold and managed estates.

With our partners, the homes we look after range from residential apartment blocks to new build housing estates, to mixed-use complexes. We provide freehold estate management and leasehold block management. What does this involve? It varies depending on the type of property, but typically includes:

  • Repairs and maintenance of communal areas such as lifts, car parks and shared green spaces.
  • Compliance and health and safety including risk assessments, inspections and placing insurance if needed.
  • Financial management of the service charge or estate charge, including setting the budget and end of year accounts.

Who we work with

We work with developers, housebuilders, freeholders and resident management companies. We fully support the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government’s public pledge to leaseholders. We will only work with developers and freeholders listed as signatories of the government pledge.

Working with developers and housebuilders

An award-winning new build property management service

We are hugely proud of our work with new build properties; we have established relationships with developers and housebuilders across the country. From new build housing estates to large-scale mixed-use, mixed-tenure developments, we understand that each property is unique.

Our approach is to build a management strategy which fits the needs of our clients. We want to help you avoid legacy issues, to ensure the budget is realistic and to help you avoid funding deficit. In practice, this means getting involved from the start and collating as much information and understanding as possible.

We believe that our clients deserve a totally bespoke service designed for them. So why not get in touch and find out what we can offer?
