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 Amersham

Amersham is a market town and civil parish in Buckinghamshire, situated on the River Chess. It is in the Chiltern Hills and 27 miles north-west of central London. Amersham originates from Old English, meaning "Ealhmund's Village." Pre Anglo-Saxon times, it was known as "Agmodesham." During the reign of King William I, "The Conqueror" (r. 1066-1087), the Domesday Book, published in 1086, recorded the name "Elmodesham." Later in the Medieval era, around 1460, further spelling variations were "Agmondesham" and "Amytysham".

In 1075, King William I held land, which he granted to Geoffrey de Mandeville, 1st Earl of Essex. He died c. 1100. In 1200, his descendant Geoffrey de Mandeville, Earl of Essex, received a charter for Amersham. This allowed him to hold a weekly market and a fair in September. In 1613, another charter was given to Edward, Earl of Bedford, to hold a weekly fair and a statute fair in September.  

Despite his Catholic upbringing, King Henry VIII (r. 1509-1547) ensured the dissolution of the monasteries. He seized such land and broke with the Roman Catholic church in Rome. The king replaced the Pope and appointed himself head of the Church of England. However, he never became a Protestant in his lifetime. His actions led to a bitter division between Roman Catholics and Protestants. Amersham and neighboring Chesham were centers of religious dissent. The king responded ruthlessly. For example, in 1521, seven Protestant Lollard dissenters, William Ellsworth, John Scrivener, Thomas Barnard, James Morden, Robert Rave, Thomas Holmes, and Joan Norman, were burned at the stake in Amersham. They had refused the king's orders to read the Bible in Latin and wanted to read the bible in English and pray in English. 1931, the Martyrs Memorial was built on a hill just above the town to commemorate the Lollards. 

During the Stuart era, prominent Quakers settled in Amersham in the 17th century. However, they endured persecution. There was a Quaker meeting house at Whielden Street in the town. At this time, the main trades were chair making, lacework, and straw plait work. As Amersham was on the main trade routes from London to Birmingham and Hatfield to Reading, coaching inns and facilities grew up to support these trades.

Amersham was the first coach stop for travelers from London. It became necessary for overnight accommodation for horse-drawn coach travelers and their horses. The many coaching houses and inns needed related businesses to support them. In the 19th century, during the Victorian period, the Weller brewery became the largest employer in the town. They formed a chain of public houses in the surrounding area. 

In 1892, Amersham station was opened on the Metropolitan Railway extension from Chalfont Road (now Chalfont & Latimer) to Aylesbury. The railway's first trains were steam locomotives. In the early 1960s, the line to Amersham was electrified, and trains were replaced with powerful diesel engines. The station we know today is on the Underground, Metropolitan Line, and National Rail. Since the opening of the original station, the town has drastically altered. A new settlement, Amersham-on-the-Hill, eventually merged with the Old Town. In the 1920s, the "Metroland" grew up: it was named after the Metropolitan Line. The new town developed, with new homes and businesses.

Amersham has been voted one of the best places to live in Britain. It remains popular with commuters and has many half-timbered buildings and pretty period cottages. The town is within an Area of Outstanding National Beauty, but it is thriving and lively, thanks to its many independent shops and restaurants.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Amersham

My family and I visited the Amersham Museum there. It is astonishing to consider how drastically this beautiful town has evolved since the Middle Ages. Despite the proliferation of new industries during the 1960s, it is encouraging to see that many ancient structures remain in this area. We left our visit and proceeded to the store. Purchasing "Amersham 1880 to 1930 through the Lens of George Ward" brought me great pleasure. He operated as a neighborhood photographer. This is an interesting book that features some exquisite photographs.
