Block Management Overview

Management is about the minutia done well. It takes a team across a range of disciplines to deal with the multiple facets of block and estate management: politics, building pathology, finance, legal knowhow and of course customer service too.

At Ringley we believe in joined up thinking and commit to signpost Clients on all things property - even if outside our day-to-day management remit

Our true business is building relationships with our people. Our people really know that they can make a difference to our residents. We match our people to what each site needs to be achieved, with you in mind. We lead the market in transparency and focusing on risk, cash, repairs and place making, usually in that order.

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.

History of High Barnet

High Barnet is a suburban market town in north London, in the borough of Barnet. It is 10.2 miles from the centre of London. The original name Barnet is derived from Old English, baernet: "the land cleared by burning." This was the clearing of land in an area that was once densely forested. The town's name was recorded as Barneto in c. 1070, Barnet in 1197 and La Barnette in 1248. 
In Saxon times, the area was part of a large wood called Southaw. This belonged to the Abbey of St. Albans. Because Barnet had an elevated position, this is indicated in the name "High Barnet", which is shown in many old books and maps. However, it is also referred to as Chipping Barnet, as this was the place of the traditional market. In 1199, King John, (r. 1199-1216), issued a Charter for a Market at Barnet, to the Lord of the Manor, the Abbot of St. Albans, John de Cella. This charter is one of the oldest recorded for a market; and the renowned Barnet Market remains to this day.
In 1471, the Battle of Barnet took place; and Yorkist troops led by King Edward IV (r. 1461-1570, and 1471-1483), killed the rebellious "Kingmaker", Richard Neville Earl of Warwick, and Warwick's brother, John Neville, 1st Marquess of Montagu. This was an important battle of the Wars of the Roses. Barnet Hill is thought to be the hill mentioned in the nursery rhyme, "The Grand Old Duke of York". This site also held a horse fair: in 1588, Queen Elizabeth I, (r. 1558-1603), granted a charter to the Lord of the Manor of Barnet, to hold a twice yearly fair. This was since the connection to the rhyming slang "Barnet Fair" or "barnet" for "hair". 
In 1872, during the reign of Queen Victoria, (r. 1837-1901), High Barnet station was opened by the Great Northern Railway, on the original site of the Barnet Faire. It was the terminus of the branch of a line that ran from Finsbury Park to Edgware, via Highgate. In 1940, High Barnet station was opened as the new terminus of the Northern Line, on the London Underground. 
At the end of the 19th century, the original railway station led to the building of a few suburban villas. However, most of Chipping Barnet was developed in the 1920s and 1930s. Green belt legislation after World War II, (1939-1945), restricted further building in the area. 
Chipping Barnet was originally a civil parish of Hertfordshire, and from 1894, was part of the Barnet Urban District. It was not until 1965, that High Barnet was transferred to Greater London, as the London Borough of Barnet.
In 1801, the parish had a population of 1,258, and by 1901, the population was 2,893. In 1951, the population was 7,062; however, in 2022, Barnet's population is 405,358.
