Coronavirus – Information on coronavirus is on the emergency page (updated on 28th May 2020). This links to official information, allows 'community volunteering', lists St Benedicts action and now has information on owner work and visitors to the Estate you must comply with. The cleaning and waste contractor uses protective equipment and wipes all flat block communal area surfaces normally touched with diluted bleach to kill viruses. The gardening contractor maintains social distancing.

Periodic and maintenence work – An update on periodic work was provided on 4th May 2020. Maintenance work is being extended to work that can be carried out safely as well as the essential.

Announcements are also available on TweetTwitter @stben_tooting in summary and on the St Benedicts announcements RSS feed.

Maintenance – The current maintenance page updated on 28th May 2020 shows work completed, ordered and planned. The major work page updated on 4th May 2020 has information on periodic repair and redecoration and flat block repairs. External work has had to be postponed because of the pandemic and internal work can no longer be carried out in 2020. As pandemic restrictions are relaxed, the Directors are considering carefully how to proceed and will provide updates on the web site in early June.



The St Benedicts Estate comprises 189 flats and houses built in the mid 1980s and the surrounding grounds between Church Lane and Rectory Lane in Tooting, London SW17. The Estate includes all properties in Abbey Drive, Carlisle Way and St Benedicts Close as well as a few properties in Church Lane and Rectory Lane.

The houses and a housing association block of flats are owned freehold, while the private flats are owned leasehold. The freehold of the private flats and of the grounds is owned by St Benedicts (Tooting) Management Company Limited (referred to as the Management Company), which is a non-profit-making limited company mutually owned by the Estate property owners (and nobody else). Being mutually owned, the Management Company also acts as the residents' association within its remit.
