  • Accounting & Financial

    Citywide Investors is responsible for collecting Ground Rent, service charges and reserve funds. We ensure that each block has its own dedicated bank account for the collection of such charges. At the end of each service charge year, full service charge accounts are drawn up and are made available upon request for inspection by the Freeholder and Leaseholders. Bank statements and reports are readily available to clients upon request.

    We have an in-depth knowledge of the budget for each property and we recognise how essential it is to have sufficient funds. We have a stringent collection policy and at times it is necessary for legal debt recovery action to be taken.

    Each property has an individual annual service charge budget. The budget is available to all parties and aims to take into account all anticipated work required on the building for the year ahead.

  • Ground Maintenance

    At Citywide Investors we have positive relationships with all of our contractors and those responsible for gardening and grounds maintenance who share in our belief that first impressions of each development are of paramount importance. All grounds maintenance programmes are customised to meet the requirements of particular properties as well as the changing times of year.

  • Cleaning

    We have regular communication with all of our cleaning contractors so as to allow them opportunities to share feedback on individual developments. We recognise that cleaning impacts on wear and tear, pests and odours so we recognise the importance of keeping buildings external and communal areas in good order both for the purpose of finances as well as the comfort of residents.

  • Site Inspections

    It is of paramount importance to Citywide Investors to ensure that all buildings are well maintained. We carry out regular inspections of every site, and complete reports, with photographic evidence, both for our own records and for the benefit of the client, and with discussion with them as and when necessary, and to ensure that short, medium and long term progress can be monitored and evaluated.

  • Building Insurance

    We take the stress of dealing with insurance away from the Freeholders and leaseholders. As a policy is due for renewal, we review and source the best available insurance policies and quotations to ensure properties are adequately covered for the best possible premium.

Citywide Investors manage and maintain our own developments which involves tendering maintenance contracts, estate agents, insurance companies and the appointment and management of onsite staff to ensure the smooth running of the building. Our team have a wealth of experience managing a variety of residential and commercial assets for a multitude of clients, so we are often called for expert witness and mediation.
