This block, taken on by our team of block management experts and industry leaders is situated in the heart of suburban North London in the Borough of Barnet.

Golders Green boasts a mixture of different properties including houses, flats, large block developments and small terraced houses.

Located in a quiet leafy street at the edge of Golders Green, NW11 this block was and remains the subject of high demand and remains a popular choice for many.

With Golders Green being just a short distance from popular areas and workplaces including Central London, the west End, Camden Town and Brent Cross Shopping Centre, it was of great importance that this block was managed efficiently and properly.

Furthermore, with many of the properties in Golders Green; block developments and otherwise having been built throughout the 1960s and 70s, there are a series of unique challenges and regulations that must always be faced and adhered to. ABC’s block management team were on hand to ensure that the management of this block of flats was handled correctly.

Problem Solved by the Management Experts at Aldermartin, Baines & Cuthbert

The block in question is a 1960s, purpose built block of flats. There were a number of issues with the property when our management experts took it on. Existing issues ranged from those relating to technicalities affecting the exterior of the block to historical issues that had plagued previous residents, lessees and managers of the block.
