MKDP Properties provides services and advice to our customers and clients managed by us. We focus on providing full block management services tailored to meet your development requirements.
Attendance to all matters arising and day to day upkeep of the apartment block and estate. We ensure your block is kept compliant with up to date legislation.
We prepare and issue service charge demands on behalf of the Management Company/Landlord. These are collected from the leaseholders into the Management Company’s bank account, which is held in trust for the benefit of each development.
We prepare budgets in conjunction with the Directors of the Management Company to assist with evaluating the annual service charge. A meeting is arranged with the Director, when budget preparation is due, usually towards the year-end date.
As part of our service, we prepare all the paperwork for the annual return and annual accounts to be filed. Regular account reviews are conducted for each development to ensure that all expenditure is accounted and reconciled in the appropriate manner. We also give customers a snapshot of what the accounts are like half way through the year, so everyone is kept informed.
We chase non-payment of service charges promptly. We understand that not having enough funds to manage your development, can have a big impact on the general management of works and having funds to pay priority bills, i.e. utility bills and buildings insurance. We have a robust system to ensure that funds are collected efficiently.
At MKDP Properties, we aim to ensure that your site requirements are met. We attend and meet any new contractors that are due to work on our developments, to ensure that details of the job are clear and is completed competently by the contractor before any works commence. Preferred contractors are used for all works completed on our developments, i.e. gardening services, cleaning provisions, window cleaning etc. They have been selected for quality workmanship, speedy response to work requests and of course value for money services.
