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 Deptford

The name Deptford derives from Division of the Parish. This is based on a ford across the Ravensbourne river, along the route of the Celtic trackway. Hence the name "deep ford" became the similar name Deptford. This was later paved by the Romans, and developed into the medieval Watling Street. 
Deptford featured in the pilgrimage route from London to Canterbury in Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, in the prologue to The Reeve's Tale. 
Deptford Dockyard was established by Henry VIII in 1513, as the first Royal Dockyard. It became a major shipping dock, where many famous names in history spent their time, including Peter The Great, ruler of the Russian Empire from 1862. He studied shipbuilding. The dockyard was mainly inactive in 1830, and although shipbuilding briefly resumed in the 1840s, the navy closed the yard in 1869.

Deptford Cultural Scene

Twinkle Park is a lovely little park, located at the end of Watergate Street. This is an unusual backwater of cobbled streets, that meander around the old wharves and housing estates. The layout of the roads dates back to the origins of Deptford's shipbuilding history. Close to Twinkle Park and just across the street, is the master shipwright's house, built in 1708, for Joseph Allen. The park itself has a children's play area, which is also a school playground during school hours. There is a small but pretty little pond, with irises, and surrounded by wooden decking and flower beds.
