The following guide explains what we do at Preim, the estate management services we offer and how we support the communities (and Residents’ Management Companies) we work for. On many estates, particularly those where building works are ongoing, there can be some confusion over what is and isn’t within the remit of Preim, or of a developer or the local authority. We hope this guide is helpful in explaining what we do at Preim and how our services relate to those provided by other stakeholders of your community.
At Preim, we are responsible for:
Often overlooked but incredibly important is the proper financial management of a Residents’ Management Company (a Community Interest Company or Management Company), along with good governance of its administration and management. At Preim we have a specialist team that understands the nuances of service charges, estate management schedules and who are well versed in ensuring good cashflow and the financial health of your management company. That all includes:
Please note, some of the services included within this guide may not be applicable to your community. Each estate and communal amenity vary from the next and our services are tailored to each. This guide is intended to give you a broad overview of our estate management services. For specifics on what your service charge covers at your estate, please refer to your Estate Management Plan or management company budget.
It is also worth noting that, in some circumstances, estate management services may also vary depending upon whether or not a communal amenity has been handed over to your Residents’ Management Company. For example, some areas may still be under the ownership of a housebuilder or developer – and so a part of their responsibility to maintain. Until they are handed over to your Residents’ Management Company (or in some cases Community Interest Company) your service charge will not be spent on maintaining these areas. This is really important as it means you will not be paying for unfinished areas of your estate and when they are handed over your community will have a say on how they are used.
