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 Belsize Park

Belsize Park is situated inner north-west of London, in the borough of Camden. It is 3.4 miles from the centre of London. The area's name originates from the French, "bel assis", meaning "well situated". 
In 1317, The Manor of Belsize, a subdivision of the Manor of Hampstead, was granted to the monks of Westminster. By the middle of the 16th century, this estate consisted of subdivided farms, which were rented out for income. After the reformation, King Henry VIII, (r.1509-1547), returned the estate to the newly established Anglican Dean of Westminster Abbey.  
In 1721, parklands opened as pleasure gardens, with concerts, singing, dancing and country sports, such as fishing and racing. However, the original parkland remained open until 1745.
In 1815, development started along the main London to Hampstead Road. This was thanks to Edward Bliss, a self-made man who built properties to lease out, and also allowed constructed subleases.
As well as housing developments, railways had to be built: from 1860, the Metropolitan Railway had stops at Hampstead and Finchley Road; and from 1868, the L & BR, had stops at Swiss Cottage and Finchley Road. In 1907, a major turning point was that Belsize Park railway station was opened, on the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway. Originally, trains on this route only ran between Charing Cross and Golders Green. However, in 1924, the route we now know as the Northern Line, was extended to Edgware.
During World War II, (1939-1945), Belsize Park Underground station was used as a deep level air raid shelter. During the mid 20th century, there was much building of flats in the area, accompanied by an influx of emigrants.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Belsize Park

I went with my family to Belsize Park Wood Nature Reserve. I brought my binoculars especially, so I could see all the wonderful birds. It was lovely to see the variety of trees there.
