Block Management

Today’s service, yesterday’s values.

At Colmore Gaskell, we understand that being appointed as the managing agent for a development is the Directors and Leaseholder placing their trust in us to look after what in many cases is the largest financial investment we hold, our homes.

Our business is designed to provide all our leaseholders with a market leading service whilst always delivering the best possible value for money and driving down costs wherever possible.

We also understand that acting as a voluntary Director of a management company can be a daunting and time-consuming task and, given the responsibility that lies with the Directors, it is essential that your managing agent provides you with all the necessary support, guidance and knowledge required to ensure the Directors and the management company meet their obligations.
