Current Planning Policy dictates that a certain amount of land within new housing developments be ‘set aside’ as communal open space or amenity areas.
These may take the form of open grass areas, shrub beds, or woodland depending on the particular scheme. The formation of a Management Company, which effectively takes ownership of these communal areas, requires each individual homeowner or shareholder to contribute towards the cost of maintaining this open space by means of an Annual Service Charge.
Broadleaf Property Management was formed in response to these increased requirements and the resultant need to manage and maintain this green space effectively. As Managing Agents, in addition to carrying out all administrative and secretarial duties in relation to the Management Company, Broadleaf Property Management:
Implement a programme of maintenance appropriate to the needs of the development and the nature and extent of the open space
Provide shareholders with a full indicative budget and maintenance schedule for their development upon handover
Ensure that all work is carried out as specified in the schedule
