Chester is a beautiful and charming town that has something for everyone. Visitors flock to enjoy the host of attractions and it’s a wonderful place to live. Quality of life here ranks highly any way people want to look at it.
Just like in every other town or city in the UK new blocks of apartments have sprung up. In this day and age it’s more common to live alone and delay settling down. Flats are perfect for younger professionals who want a place of their own, but don’t need a house just yet.
Anyone who lives in a flat will know all about service charges and property management in Chester. Each block has communal areas that need to be looked after and maintained along with the outside of the building. They might have access to additional services like a concierge or a gym for example. These are all paid for through a monthly or quarterly service charge.
In some cases block management in Chester can leave a lot to be desired. It’s an unregulated sector and some unscrupulous managing agents seem to take a lot of money from residents and deliver a very poor service in return. They’re slow to respond, work doesn’t get done and everyone ends up feeling frustrated and short changed.
Thankfully a situation like this doesn’t have to be tolerated. Residents have the right to choose a new management company to take over the running of their complex. If the present service isn’t up to scratch then it might be time to find out more about making the switch to new agents. Agents who care about service levels and value for money. A change over doesn’t have to involve endless paperwork and legal wrangling. With the right agents it’s a seamless process that leads to better management of the apartment block.
