Block Website (Free)
With our Block Website package, you and your fellow homeowners get:
Your block's own secure website accessible only by homeowners in the block
Easy to use communication via an electronic notice board
Structured decision and voting system, helping homeowners to make collective decisions
Electronic storage of uploaded documents, ensuring no loss of information
Central access point for contact details of fellow homeowners
Easy to use tools for entering information about the block
This package will be of most use to homeowners in blocks containing 2-3 flats, who require minimal financial administration but need to be able to communicate with one another, as well as a place to store essential information.
Admin Assist (£85 - £110 per unit per year)
The Admin Assist package gives you all of the online functions of the Block Website package, whilst we undertake the administrative functions on your behalf, saving you time and effort and ensuring that you don't violate regulatory requirements. Urban Owners will:
Undertake all aspects of day-to-day financial administration;
Assist homeowners in determining their annual budget
Generate service charge requests and collect monies from homeowners
Receive, and, after authorisation, pay invoices from contractors
Track and reconcile the bank account balances
Produce the electronic and physical files ready for accountant review
Deal with any enquiries from the accountants resultant from accounts production
Maintain physical files of all documentation and correspondence
Maintain an archive of key documentation
Full Admin (£140 - £300 per unit per year)
Our Full Admin package provides a level of service equivalent to that offered by traditional managing agents, but with the distinction that homeowners are in control of management decisions, and are consulted before actions are taken. For example, you approve contractors before they are engaged, and have the ability to stop invoices before they are paid by Urban Owners.
With our Full Admin package, you get everything included in our Admin Assist package, whilst additionally we will:
Administer the selection and engagement of regular contractors to your block (for ad hoc project management work please see the Supplementary Services section below).
Provide a qualified surveyor / inspector to undertake an initial Block Condition Survey Report and thereafter a Periodic Block Inspection Report on an annual or more regular basis. The reports are intended to provide homeowners with advice and guidance on actions they should be taking with respect to the maintenance of their block
Conduct an Annual Leaseholders Meeting with members of the residents' management company or Right to Manage company
We recognise that at times Admin Assist and Full Admin clients will have neither the time or inclination to participate in certain aspects of the management of their block. Accordingly, we offer a range of supplementary services so that, should they prefer, clients can call upon Urban Owners for more extensive administration of their block.
Please note - for Full Admin clients, Annual Leaseholders Meeting, Block Condition Survey Report and Periodic Block Inspection Report are included in your basic package.
Company Secretary (£150 per block per year)
Project Management (£45 - £75 per hour or 10% of works)
Block Condition Survey (£250 - £500 per survey)
Periodic Maintenance Inspection (£100 per inspection)
