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 Northwick Park

Northwick Park is situated north-west of London, in the borough of Brent. It is 12.7 miles from the centre of London. In 1923, during the reign of King George V, (r. 1910-1936), the station was opened as Northwick Park and Kenton. This is the Northwick Park Underground station we know today, on the Metropolitan Line. During the 1920s, following the station's opening, much building developments took place. Captain Spencer-Churchill intended to create "a unique specimen of town planning, the largest and best laid out estate near London". The end result was perhaps more mundane than this description.  

The park was originally an estate, and part of Sheepcote Farm in the manor of Harrow, and was named after its lord, Northwick. In the 1930s, Middlesex County Council acquired 192 acres of land, to plant trees and create a landscape to the existing hedges.

In 1966, works commenced on the extensive Northwick Park Hospital. It was designed by the British architect John Weeks, and built by Trollope & Colls. In 1970, the hospital was opened by Queen Elizabeth II, (r. 1952-2022).

Today, Northwick Park is considered a desirable part of London to live, and has attracted affluent people. The area has one of the lowest crime rates in London.

In the summer, I went with my family to Northwick Park. We enjoyed a game of golf, and had a good walk along the brook.
