Shard End

Location: Birmingham
Client: Affinity Sutton

We provide our expertise on this complicated multi-let situation – which includes 26 flats – where the residential client is working with the freeholder, who is responsible for the commercial units and some outside areas.

KWB manages the residential apartments and also works with the freeholder on the 12 shops and library below – as well as the management of the car park.

In our time working on the scheme we have resolved service charge issues – by reducing estate charge and electricity contributions to the freeholder, fulfilled all reporting requirements and introduced an effective access control system to manage some security issues – working with local police and council representatives.
