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 Broxbourne

Broxbourne is a town in Hertfordshire, and is situated 17.3 miles north of central London. The town is near the River Lea, which forms the boundary with Essex. The name Broxbourne is thought to originate from the Old English words "brocc" and "burna", which mean "Badger stream". During the reign of King William I, "The Conqueror", (r. 1066-1087), the Domesday Book, published in 1086, shows the Manor of Broxbourne as "Brochtsborne". The manor was held in the time of Edward the Confessor, (r. 1042-1066), by Stigand, the Archbishop of Canterbury. However, it passed into Norman hands, following the Conquest of 1066.
King John, (r. 1199-1216), granted the manor to the Knights Hospitallers, a medieval and early modern Catholic military order. They held the manor until the Dissolution of the Monasteries, (1536-1541). King Henry VIII, (r. 1509-1547), cut off from the Roman Catholic Church in Rome and declared himself Head of the Church of England. He ruthlessly destroyed the monastic system, to reap its wealth and to suppress political opposition. Around 200 dissenters who refused dissolution, were mercilessly executed by the king.
In the 15th century, the parish chruch of St. Augustine at Broxbourne, was entirely rebuilt. However, a 12th century Purbeck marble font survives. The interior retains monuments and brasses dating from the 15th to the 19th centuries. The tower has a belfry with eight bells, three of which date from 1615. 
In 1613, the New River was constructed to pass through the centre of the town. It was essential, to supply London with fresh drinking water. The water was first sourced from Chadwell and Amwell Springs near Ware in Hertfordshire.  Later, the local River Lea was a source for the water supply. 
In 1840, in the early Victorian period, the first railway station at Broxbourne, was opened on the Northern and Eastern Railway. The railway station we know today, is on National Rail. As a building of architectural and historic interest, the station is now a Grade II listed building. 
In 1845, James Pulham and Son opened a terra cotta works. This specialised in creating beautiful artificial landscapes, with rockeries, grottos and water features. The Pulhams produced work for at least 170 sites around the UK, including public parks and gardens and large private gardens, for example Sandringham and Buckingham Palace. Although Pulham House was demolished in 1957, remnants that survive, include one of the six brick kilns and the horse-drawn puddling wheel that ground the terracotta, which are now Grade II listed.
In the 20th century, the area was used for gravel and sand extraction: this left numerous water-filled lakes. Several of these form part of the Lee Valley Regional Park.
Broxbourne is considered a pleasant place to live and retire. Residents have access to the second largest average combined size of parks, public gardens or playing fields, within a 0.6 mile radius. Not surprisingly, the town is ideal for commuters, who only have a short journey to make into London.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Broxbourne

I suggested to my friend going on a cruise, with the Lee Valley Boat Centre. I'm so pleased we went. It was a great trip, and we enjoyed views along the River Lee. We had a lovely fish and chips, for lunch: even better!
