Residential Management Companies

Residential management companies (RMC) are also known as:

  • Block Management companies
  • Residents Associations
  • Management Company
  • Flat Management Company

A Residential Management Company (RMC) is a company originally set up when a development is first built and is specifically intended for the management of that development. The registered name of the RMC and its Company House details will be mentioned in the lease, and the lessees have the right to become directors and assist in the management of the estate. The lessees appoint the managing agent and directors can meet as often at they deem necessary.

 

Hicks Hadley secures the majority of our business through personal recommendations and in addition to our Block Management Services we are able to work with RMCs and can provide the following:

  • A registered office
  • Act as company secretary
  • Attend RMC meetings
  • Provide ring-fenced client accounts
  • Consultations with directors in relation to major works
