Administration

Property Managers and Managing Agents of apartment blocks and similar developments collect service charges on behalf of the estate and spend those service charges subject to a budget. Additionally, they may also collect ground rent on behalf of a landlord.

blockman is a service charge and ground rent accounting and administration system.

blockman also allows you record AGM, Director and Committee meeting notices, minutes of meetings as well as provide a host of other administration features necessary for running an RTM or Management Company. Issues may be logged and reported on. The same issues may be converted to works orders. All correspondence from the lessee may be scanned and stored.

Financial

blockman creates a separate set of accounts for each Block under management and allows the user to charge each unit one or more service charges on an equal basis or percentage basis as per the lease. Ground Rent may be charged and lodged to a separate account if necessary. blockman also accommodates multiple sinking funds. Standard accounting systems do not do this.

blockman is in full compliance with the recognised Codes of Practice ( RICS code of practice "Service Charge Residential Management Code" approved by the Secretaries of State for England and Wales under the terms of Section 87 of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 ).
