Geneva Court
How did we do it?
£21,204 saved on insurance. Having claimed the right to manage the residents finally could insure themselves. Past poor claims management, claims left open for years were problems. We sped up valid claims, shut spurious claims. Put a proposal together and delivered a result.

Howitt Close
How did we do it?
We saved 40% on insurance or £5,367. It is about how you present a case to the insurers and how well they trust you to manage, especially on buildings with lead pipes, flat roofs, down-feed water supplies.

Clive Court exercised their Right to Manage, after growing concerns over escalating fees and very little transparency with the previous Managing Agent. The 1st saving Ringley delivered was almost £3,000 on the Buildings insurance.

Stourcliffe
How did we do it?
Ringley inherited rather a lot when this RTM took over; the Portman Estate was part way through trying to either dispossess the headlessee or to require them to immediately effect over £2M works to windows, roof, rainwater goods, decorations.... What hurt lessees the most is that there were only 9 years left on their leases. Ringley reviewed every aspect of the schedule of works and what was 'reasonable repairs' bearing in mind there were just 9 years left on the lease, and where replacement or renewal could not be defended. Through diligent research and careful procurement we managed to save the client just under £250,000 + Vat by specifying different methods/materials and repair not renewal where possible as well as sourcing an alternative window supplier.

Saved £7,000

21 Streatham Common North
How did we do it?
We took over this underfunded and un-maintained block with a staggering £7,000 of service charge arrears that had been incorrectly billed and never collected by the previous managing agent who ended up footing the bill. In addition we successfully pursued £15,000 of aged arrears, which then went towards Major Works that were needed on the building. Streatham Common North is now well into the 2nd of 4 phases of Major Works and looks amazing!

Cunningham Court
How did we do it?
Ringley negotiated that TUPE did not apply. The porter previously served 2 blocks and we argued that as his staff facilities were in the other block that TUPE did not apply on either a full time or part time basis.
