Block Management


As a long established independent Letting Agency, SAMS has been managing blocks of flats in Plymouth for many years providing expert advice and support to Directors of Block Management Companies.

If you own a flat in a development and it is being self-managed, the chances are it is a big problem for a few interested volunteer owners who are trying to collect the services charges, arrange insurance and deal with bills and day to day management even though they are not being paid and they really don’t have the time to do it.

So often we take over the management of blocks of flats as Managing Agents and find the accounts are in a mess with fees being missed or unpaid and general total confusion. If this is allowed to continue, it can result in late Companies House filing fees and fines and a deterioration in the upkeep of the building.

Do you really need this stress!

At SAMS ACCOMMODATION we manage several blocks in Plymouth and we really enjoy getting to grips with poorly managed developments and turning them around into appropriately funded developments with up to date transparent accounts with good lines of communication and responsibilities.

The services we carry out can vary and be tailored to suit your individual needs and the list below is not exhaustive but is typical of what we can provide:-

Issuing demands to all owners for the payment of Service Charges and Ground Rents and ensuring prompt and full payment. Recording and updating payment records.
