My estate and grounds maintenance

Lawnmower mowing grass in garden

We’re responsible for maintaining the grounds and communal areas around your estates and neighbourhoods. The cost of this is re-charged to you through your service charge.

Most of our grounds maintenance and cleaning is carried out by our contractors but we carry out regular inspections to make sure they’re doing their job properly. 

As well as the day-to-day cleaning and maintenance, we employ mobile caretakers who can often be seen out and about on your estates. They can respond quickly to any small jobs that need to be done. 

Please help keep your neighbourhood clean and tidy

  • Keep your pets under control and don’t allow them to foul in communal areas
  • Clear up after your pets
  • Put out your rubbish and recycling on the right collection days
  • Use bulky waste collection services to get rid of large items (contact your local council for more information)
  • Report any faults or repairs to communal areas – for example, communal doors, lighting and door-entry systems
