Budget, newsletter & charges – Our insurer has confirmed that building premiums will more than double and excesses will increase, so the Directors have had to set a budget (PDF, 63kb) with large increases in charges, even after taking every other step to keep these as low as possible, including deferring periodic work unless essential, for which costs have also increased greatly. This is explained further in the July Newsletter. The Managing Agent will now send out charges that were due on 1 July, to be paid within two weeks of receipt.

Managing Agent contact – Our Senior Property Manager, Angela Petts, is asking people to phone rather than email her if possible. Call her mobile (not landline during the pandemic) number 07800 628907 on weekdays between 09:00am and 5:30pm. While Angela is on leave from 6 July returning 20 July, email our Assistant Property Manager, Yasmin Spence, who works Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Keep safe – Please limit social contact, keep 2 metres apart if possible, 1 metre apart with other precautions (like masks) if not and work from home if possible. You must now use face coverings on public transport and in other enclosed spaces like shops and are advised to take and use hand sanitiser. Wash your hands thoroughly for 20 seconds as soon as you get home. You may now meet or stay with one other household indoors or outdoors keeping households 2 metres apart (unless allowed to 'bubble'). You must self isolate, get tested and not go out for 10 days if you have symptoms, 14 days if anyone in your household or 'bubble' has symptoms or NHS contact tracing instructs you to. More information can be found on the emergency page (updated on 1st August 2020), with official and St Benedicts information and safety restrictions you must follow.
