General Maintenance

Every year, Block Management UK instructs and manages thousands of different jobs across all our sites. Jobs range from leaking taps to faulty paving, electrical repairs to lift servicing or fixing potholes in a car park. These jobs may be routine for us, but we are aware that they are not routine to the residents of our properties: they are vital to being able to live safely and comfortably.

No two jobs are exactly the same and no two properties are either. So, all jobs must be properly assessed before we seek two or more quotes from competent local contractors.

We take pride in the quality of finished works and the cost implications are always at the heart of all the jobs undertaken. Every effort is made to protect the physical investment of our clients' properties, whilst keeping overall spending at a sensible level.
