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 Bounds Green

Bounds Green is situated to the north of London, in the borough of Haringey. It is 8.4 miles from central London. Records show first evidence of settlement in the area, during the reign of King William I, "The Conqueror", (r. 1066-1087). 
In 1365, during the reign of King Edward III, (r. 1327-1377), the area was first called Le Boundes, because it originated from land held by John Le Bounde.
In 1608, during the reign of King James I, (r. 1603-1625), the name was Boundsgrene.
In the late 19th century, during the reign of Queen Victoria, (r. 1837-1901), Bounds Green was a small farming hamlet, with a few cottages, a tavern and a brickworks. A large portion of its residents were wealthy. In 1883, the area became part of the parish of St. Michael-at-Bowes, with a mission church of St. Peter. 
In 1859, New Southgate station was opened; and in 1880, Bowes Park station was opened. These railway developments initiated residential building growth. For example, in 1895, Bounds Green infants' and junior schools were built. 
In 1906, during the reign of Edward VII, (1901-1910), electric tram services started running; and many Edwardian properties survive from the phase of housebuilding that followed. 
In 1932, during the reign of King George V, (1910-1936), Bounds Green station was opened, on the London Electric Railway. This is the Underground, Piccadilly Line station we know today. The opening of the station reflected a completion of Bounds Green as a suburb of London, in the 1930s. Unfortunately, in 1940, during World War II, (1939-1945), a Luftwaffe bomb killed 17 people who were sheltering in the tunnel at Bounds Green station, and four others who were at home nearby.
Before and after World War II, factories were established in the area; at first individually, and later on an industrial estate. In the late 1970s, an old warehouse was converted for use by Middlesex Polytechnic (now University). The building has since been converted again, into residential apartments. There are many other examples of former industrial premises in Bounds Green, that have been replaced by housing.
