Managing property is more complex than you may initially think. The running of a development must be carried out in the legal framework of and in accordance to, the property lease and the Landlord and Tenant act 1985. It involves amongst other duties, devising annual budgets, collecting Service Charge and Ground Rent, managing the site i.e. organising and overseeing maintenance schedules, emergency repairs, carrying out regular site inspections, Health and Safety compliance, cleaning, sourcing / managing sub-contractors and dealing with resident complaints. All of which while keeping up to date on ever changing legislation.
