Block Management Overview

Block and Estate Management is about the minutia done well: the role of a Managing Agent is technical, administrative, practical and political. It takes joined up thinking from a multi-disciplined team with one eye on the strategic long term plan and with sufficient resource to react to whatever is necessary day-to-day: the skills that block and estate management spans are: politics, building pathology, finance, legal knowhow and of course customer service too.

As a leading Managing Agent, we are a one-stop-property shop. We understand that our role is sometimes signposting Clients to get expert advice and supporting them to interpret such advice and make decisions. We support and help owners reach out to government and other local services where matters are beyond our day-to-day block management remit.

As a Managing Agent we know our true business is building relationships with people. Our people are empowered and know that they can make a difference to how people feel about where they live. We call our 'Property Manager's 'Relationship Managers' as our focus which is written up in our values is (a) to build relationships, (b) add value, and (c) to take the initiative: to us this means managing relationships. We lead the market in transparency and focusing on risk, cash, repairs and place making, usually in that order, and was the first Managing Agent to introduce a 'money back guarantee'.

We are not shy of hard work and believe our ability to get stuck in and find solutions that sets us apart. We are innovative to the core and committed to implementing good ideas in pursuit of 5* service.

Being who we are would be impossible without our passionately committed people, whose qualifications we sponsor and who we support professionally to be the best they can be, as achieving a national training award and our Silver IIP status confirms.


Block Management Reviews

"Our property manager, Natalie Birmingham has made our experience with Ringley extremely positive, having moved some of the management of our commercial property over to Ringley.
Natalie's professionalism, promptness, and dedication to exceeding expectations has left a lasting impression. She responds promptly to any queries or comments that we have and what sets Natalie apart is her commitment to going above and beyond. "

"Ringley have been supporting a number of leaseholders as managing agent - including myself - through a large insurance claim. It’s not an easy job managing 40+ different competing interests and I commend them for handling such a tricky situation. Dominic and Kate have been been responsive, informative and have advocated my needs and interests to all third party stakeholders. The claim will take a significant amount of time to resolve but had it not of been for Ringley I do not think we would have made any progress at all. I strongly recommend them."

"We have had a problem with noise from the flat above us in Lady Isle House Ferry Court Cardiff. We contacted a Mr Paul Staniforth who immediately became involved and addressed the situation. We really do appreciate what he has done for us and cannot thank him enough. Once again a big thank you to Mr Staniforth. The noise above was intolerable."

History of Aldgate

Aldgate is located 2.9 miles from the city center of London and to the east of the City of London. Diverse hypotheses exist regarding the precise origin of the region's appellation. It was initially designated as "East Gate" in 1052. It was renamed "Aldgate" in 1108. Additional concepts have been suggested: "Ale Gate" could potentially denote a renowned alehouse, while "All Gate" signifies that the entrance was open to all. A gate at Aldgate is thought to have traversed the road to Colchester during the Roman era, coinciding with the construction of the London Wall.

The construction of the gate underwent numerous modifications throughout the centuries. It was fortified with portcullises and chained in 1377 out of apprehension regarding possible French assaults. This was among a multitude of gates in London that required reinforcement. Geoffrey Chaucer penned several verses between 1374 and 1386 while residing in an apartment atop the gate, where he served as a customs official. During the earlier decades of the century, it was customary for alder person to lease surplus territory above the city entrances.

However, there was a drawback in that despite being constructed for military use, the accommodations remained substandard in quality and lacked privacy. Thus, it is possible that Chaucer, the poet endured chilly and confined conditions. Ultimately, the barrier was eliminated in 1761 to facilitate traffic. Because of London's expansion in the eighteenth century, substantial portions of the wall and its gateways were demolished. The wall's defensive function was no longer required. Aldgate station was inaugurated in 1876, under the tenure of Queen Victoria (1837-1901). Subsequently, in 1884, the initial Aldgate East station was established.

These two stations constituted a noteworthy advancement. At the moment, Aldgate is situated on the Metropolitan and Circle line, while Aldgate East is connected to the Metropolitan and District line via the London Underground. Prior to the 20th century, Aldgate, similar to other east London boroughs, was plagued by destitution and comprised numerous council estates. Nevertheless, regeneration initiatives have elevated and enhanced the area in recent years. Now, Aldgate is a prosperous and flourishing neighbourhood in London.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Aldgate

I was in the Aldgate area, and by chance saw St. Botolph's Church. I went inside and enjoyed seeing the stained glass windows. Then I went to a local café, and got a coffee, which I drank, in the church garden. It was a good place to sit and relax.

Things to do in Aldgate

St. Botolph's Aldgate, Aldgate High Street, London, EC3, was opened and consecrated in 1744. The church was designed by George Dance, the same architect that designed Mansion House, the official home of the Lord Mayor of London. The church is committed to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults from domestic abuse. There are beautiful stained glass windows within the church. A new glazed doorway will be built, to match the architectural style of the building. Adjoining the church, there is a pleasant garden, for visitors to sit and rest in.
