Client: Hainton House Management Ltd
Banks Long Lead: Emma Surphlis
Brief: Hainton House is an 18th-century Georgian style Grade II listed former Rectory, converted into a range of luxury apartments by Castle Square Developments.
Each apartment owner is a member of the Hainton House Management Company Ltd, which owns the freehold of the properties. The Company instructed Banks Long & Co to manage the apartments on their behalf.
Banks Long & Co Solution: Banks Long & Co manage the common areas of the Grade II listed building, which include the allocated car parking and gated community gardens.
The block management includes a Section 20 Consultation for all qualifying works to the building. This requires agents to consult with all leaseholders if the required repairs, maintenance or improvements cost more than £250 per leaseholder.
The penalty for non-compliance with a Section 20 process is that the management company cannot recover or collect service charges above that level. Therefore, it is crucial that all works are compliant with the regulations, a task that Hainton House Management Company Ltd has entrusted with Banks Long & Co.
Results: Banks Long & Co’s in-house knowledge and specialist experience ensure the seamless and professional management of all properties within Hainton House.
Through the firm’s extensive networks and understanding of the specific contractors required, the features of this stand-out Grade II listed heritage building are continuously maintained and preserved.
