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 Kentish Town

Kentish Town is situated inner north of London, in the borough of Camden. It is 4 miles from central London. The original name probably derives from Ken-ditch or Caen-ditch, which means "bed of a waterway". It is not related to the English county of Kent. Interestingly, ken is also the Celtic word for both "green" and "river", while ditch refers to the River Fleet, now a subterranean river. Another theory is that the name originates from its position near the Fleet. It has been suggested that Kentish Town, which lies in between two forks of the Fleet, takes its name from cant or cantle, form the Middle English, which means "corner". 
In 1207, during the reign of King John, (r. 1199-1216), the name Kentisston was recorded. At this time, the area was a small settlement on the River Fleet. From the 1450s onwards, Kentish Town became a busy hamlet. 
In the early 19th century, modernisation replaced the area's rural origins: 18th century buildings and the River Fleet vanished at this time.
Kentish Town was a popular resort. It was a major site for development, as the Kentish Town Road was an important route from London northwards. Karl Marx was a famous resident, who lived at 46 Grafton Terrace, from 1856.
During the reign of Queen Victoria, (r. 1837-1901), the area was poor. However, in 1877, mission work started, to look after impoverished people.
During the 19th century and early 20th century, several piano and organ manufacturers operated at Kentish Town. The Piano Journal, in 1901, described the area as: "…that healthful suburb dear to the heart of the piano maker".
In 1907, during the reign of King Edward, (r. 1901-1910), Kentish Town station opened, on the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway. The Underground station we know today, is on the Northern Line. 
Kentish Town has greatly developed since Victorian times. In 1841, the population was 10,000. In 2018, the population was 15,200.
