Residential Building Management

If you are a Director of a residential building management company that wants to retain overall control and direction of the management but require support, assistance and guidance with the day to day tasks, up-keep of the building and long term planning then Maylark can offer bespoke packages to assist you.

Maylark’s services are specifically designed for small to medium sized residential buildings. We are not a block management company but deliver services to the management company based on your individual needs. We are happy to work with any trusted contractors you use today, though are also able to introduce or supplement these with the contractors who we have relationships with.

The main services we supply are:

  • Resident communications
  • Building and grounds repair and maintenance
  • Support with Director duties
  • Building and grounds risk management
  • Management of day-to-day finances

Our experience comes from personal ownership of our own block of flats and from supporting other residential management companies and owners, for example, a 60 home estate on the outskirts of Crawley.

Residential Building Management

Our approach involves working with the Directors to define a package that meets your requirements, agreeing an implementation plan and then delivering based on those needs.  However, if you discover that the package needs changing after implementation, whether that be more or less support required then we are happy to amend it.  Our goal is to deliver a flexible solution which delivers value for money.

Below are the different components of our package which can be tailored to meet your individual needs
