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 Arnos Grove

Arnos Grove is in the borough of Enfield, which is north of London. It takes 7.5 miles to get to the middle of London. Arm Holt was a wood on the western edge of Southgate in the 1400s. That's where the first name comes from. At some point, though, it was known as Arnold's and Arno's Grove. It's called a "grove or copse of the Arnold family" in these land names. It is written in records from the 1400s that the Arnolds owned land in the area.

The Nuns of Clerkenwell were in charge of Arnos Grove. But King Henry VIII (1509–1547) broke up their convent. Over 800 houses were broken up during the Reformation, which lasted from 1536 to 1540. Henry VIII got rid of Catholicism and cut ties with the Roman Catholic Church in Rome when he took over as head of the Church of England instead of the Pope. He cruelly told people to hurt Roman Catholics. This made things very bad between Catholics and Protestants.

There used to be a Tudor royal house there, but it was torn down in 1719. It is thought that James Colebrook tore it down and built a house in Cannon Hill, Southgate, called Arnolds. Landowners in the area called it Arno's. The land was then owned by Sir William Mayne, 1st Baron Newhaven (1722–1794), who changed its name to Arnos Grove. Mayne was a businessman and politician from Britain.

While George V was king (1910–1936), Andrew Weir, 1st Baron Inverforth (1865–1955) bought the land in 1918. Andrew Weir and Co. shipowners of Glasgow was his business, which he started and ran. Lord Inverforth planned Lord Inverforth's plan to improve the Arnos Grove area. He gave the Southgate Urban District Council 44 acres of his land, which they used to make Arnos Park in 1928. Some parts were later sold to people who built homes. The North Metropolitan Electricity Supply Company bought the castle in Arnos Grove in 1928. The house was later made bigger. It is now a popular place to live for seniors called Southgate Beaumont.

Before the 1930s, most of the area was farmland. The Piccadilly Line's Arnos Grove Underground stop opened in 1932. After this big step, people started moving to the suburbs, and by 1939, the area north of Arnos Grove had been developed into the fancy Minchenden estate. Privately built apartments have been added to the area more recently. Currently, Arnos Grove is a nice neighbourhood with lots of open green space and a variety of reasonably priced houses.

Best places to eat out in Arnos Grove

Connected Living London are proposing to transform the land adjacent to Arnos Grove Underground station. This is the most recognisable and cherished of Charles Holden's station designs. In 2011, the station was granted Grade II* status. Connected Living London propose to preserve and enhance the station setting, while also providing 162 homes, including 40% affordable housing. This will be suitable for key workers living or working in Enfield.
The development will encourage active travel by enhancing the stations' surroundings, including a public square, for the local community to enjoy. This will make it easier and safer for people to walk and cycle in the area. New flexible commercial space will open out onto the newly created public space.
Connected Living London believe that a sustainable development means more than the environment. For example, the local economy will flourish, and quality of life will be improved. One example of the environment's improvement will be the transformation of car parks, to reduce congestion and improve air quality. 
The homes are designed to reduce energy, water and waste consumption. For greening and landscaping, existing trees will be protected, and the policy will be to replace any being removed. High home quality will indicate good standards, for running costs, health and wellbeing.
 

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Arnos Grove

With my friend, I visited Arnos Park in the summer. We enjoyed a game of tennis and had a pleasant walk along Pymmes Brook.
