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 Maida Vale

Before 1800, the area of land now known as Maida Vale, was about 200 acres (85 hectares), of completely open land. Its boundaries are the section of Edgware Road, now known as Maida Vale, to the east, the Regents Canal to the south, Formosa Street and Shirland Road to the west, and Kilburn Park Road to the north. 
Maida Vale, London, is part of the City of Westminster, an affluent residential district. It's name originates from a pub called The Hero of Maida, and its hanging board used to show a likeness of Major-General Sir John Stuart, who was the Count of Maida, a town in Calabria, southern Italy. In February 1806, 5,000 British troops were sent under the command of Sir James Craig, to defend the Kingdom of Naples, Italy, and its neighbouring southern area, Calabria, against occupying French troops. During the conflict, Craig suffered ill health, and his command was replaced by Major-General John Stuart. He intended to exploit the weakness of the  French troops in Calabria, across the Straits of Messina separating Sicily from southern Italy, by launching an attack on the Calabrian coast. He marched on to attack the French on the plains of Maida, and he gained an important victory, on 4th July, 1806. This honour resulted in Sir John Stuart's appointment as Count of Maida, by King Ferdinand IV of Naples and III of Sicily; and he was granted knighthood from the British government. So the pub The Hero of Maida was credited with its name, in 1810. The pub was situated on the original Edgware Road, near the Regent's Canal, and the pub continued trading until 2000.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Maida Vale

I had a great meal at the Red Pepper Restaurant, and thoroughly enjoyed my vegetarian pizza, with wine. The staff were friendly, and the restaurant has a good atmosphere. 
Red Pepper Restaurant is located at 8 Formosa Street, Maida Vale, London, W9, has an extensive menu of Italian food: pizza, from the wood-burning oven, and good regional 'rustico' cooking, including pasta and risotto dishes. There is a specials board, with seafood, and 'Italian tapas' starters. The restaurant is popular for both eat in and take away, and there is a good wine list.
