If you are looking for an easier, compliant and efficient way to self manage your block of flats, here's how Resident does the hard work for you.
All you have to do is input your agreed annual budget against our comprehensive list of expense types, and Resident generates service charge demands, across unlimited service charge schedules. It automatically creates year end account expenditure reports splitting transactions under various service charge expense headings, with individual accounts for each leaseholder.
Upload copies of supplier invoices and record supplier payments, as well as leaseholder service charge receipts, with a link to your cashbook for a snapshot of your bank balance at any point.
If you need advice from a real-life service charge accountant, you can find one in a flash from our list of approved firms.
Avoid Section 20 headaches by logging all general repairs and maintenance with warning alerts if proposed expenditure hits the £250 threshold for major works.
Set calendar email reminders to your inbox for repetitive important tasks including insurance renewals, health and safety assessments, and service contract due dates.
Resident also generates works orders and emails direct to your chosen contractor with a copy to you.
Information and documents are stored on our secure cloud platform. You and your neighbours can log in from anywhere, on any device, giving you instant access to documentation, certificates, accounts, messages, meeting minutes, actions agreed, and more. We provide as many logins as you need, giving leaseholders access to their own account as well as to shared block information.
Administrator rights give you full overview of all the financial data and control how much access everyone has to sensitive details such as service charge arrears.
As leaseholders have logins too they can access budgets, documentation, and maintenance reports themselves making the whole management process totally transparent. Resident stores all historical information so that it is readily available to current leaseholders.
There is a built-in instant messaging service, a digital message board, and an online voting tool to speed up decision-making.
Unique to Resident, our software provides a comprehensive checklist to help you stay compliant. An inbuilt case management system takes you step by step through the block management process. There are prompts to help you manage your blocks according to best practice.
Warning alerts have been set up for Section 20 thresholds to ensure that legal obligations have been met and there are templates to follow if you need to produce notices for these or 14 day arrears.
Acting as Company Secretary? Resident links with companies house for annual return and accounts reminders, generates share certificates and records the share register.
