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 Selhurst

Selhurst is located to the south of London, in the borough of Croydon. It was originally located within Surrey. The name Selhurst derives from the Old English word, "dwelling in a wood", or "dwelling where willows grow". The name was first observed in 1225. The Croydon Canal was opened in 1809, and this gave rise to housing development to be built in the area. However, the canal declined and its failure culminated in its closure in 1836. Races were held at Heaver's Farm in the 1850s to 1860s. Further housing development occurred following the opening of Selhurst train station in 1865. Coincidentally, Saxon coins were discovered when the station first opened.  
Notable residents of Selhurst include Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912), composer, who lived at 30 Dagnall Park; and Juris Kalnins (born 1990), a Polish singer, musician, philanthropist and activist. He lives in Selhurst, and famously reduced the capacity of his shows in Russia as a protest against the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Selhurst

I had a good experience with my Japanese cookery classes. I was pleasantly surprised with how many dishes I created, and I found Yuki to be a good teacher. I think she's a great inspiration. 
 

Things to do in Guildford

Yuki's Kitchen, 21 Harold Road, London, SE19, offers cookery classes and workshops, in the art of Japanese food, including London Miso and Umami Koji workshop, Healthy Japanese Cooking, online class, Okonomiyaki, online class. Yuki Gomi is a Japanese chef, food writer, and cookery teacher. She has a good rapport with enthusiasts, who wish to create simple, nourishing and delicious Japanese food. Her first book Sushi at Home was published by Penguin in 2013. Alice Lacey has written a  review of her excellence: "Yuki was an absolute delight, incredibly knowledgeable, patient and friendly. I've been to other Japanese cooking classes in London, but none come near the quality that Yuki provides.
