Block Management

We have a division solely dedicated to block management. Our portfolio of managed blocks has grown rapidly over the last few years therefore in the interests of increased efficiency all blocks are looked after by Duke Management Ltd.


The management and administration of purpose built blocks of flats, converted houses and privately run residential estates is a quite unique form of property management requiring specialised skills and an in-depth knowledge of legislation not normally found within the average residential letting agency.

At Duke Management Ltd we have a proven track record in the highly specialised area of Block Management. We take a very proactive interest in the properties we manage with the view that the value should not only be maintained but enhanced wherever possible. To achieve this, we work closely with freehold owners and representatives of Resident Associations to prepare proper programmes of cost effective management that maximise the capital value of buildings while continuing to maintain the annual service charge at a sustainable, economic level.

Duke Management Ltd can offer you:

  • 24 Hour Call Out. We recognise that emergencies don't always happen at convenient times, which is why we provide every resident with an emergency call number for any problem occurring outside of normal working hours.

  • Well-qualified and experienced staff with an in-depth knowledge of the complicated legislative issues and administration procedures involved in Block Management.

  • Access to competent contractors at competitive rates.

  • Annual budgets, planned maintenance and regular site visits.

  • The experience and diplomacy needed to deal with any problems and to resolve any disputes that may arise within the community.

  • Competitive management fees.

  •  Above all, we offer an extremely flexible approach to Block Management. We can manage as much or as little as you require - from merely collecting the service charges through to a full management package including acting as company secretary.
