Heading: New front door key lock

Date: 16th January 2024


Dear all Leaseholders,

In recent months Compass Block Management have received a number of issues relating to the front entrance door to the block.  Compass have been made aware that a number of apartments are being used as an air b and b and as a result the existing code to access the block has been misused.   The door has been forced on a number of occasions and  has been repaired only to be vandalised again.  We do have evidence of who are operating air b and bs and relevant breach of lease letters have been issued and this is being closely monitored if you are aware of this activity please email myself direct [email protected]

As per the conditions of your lease, you are not to operate a business from within the apartment unless you have had authority to do so from the management company.  On checking, authority would not be granted for this type of business.

A breach of lease charge of £60.00 (£50.00 plus VAT) has therefore been incurred by you as the leaseholder.

The contractor has been instructed to install a key lock on the front door today (16.1.2024) two spare keys will be posted into every postbox at Bishopsgate.  Please inform your tenants to access their postbox for keys.  Loss of a key will incur a charge to the leaseholder so please advise your tenants to look after them

I am confident this will reduce increased activity and minimise the security risk.  I have updated the Compass Website please ensure you subscribe in order to receive future update. 

Please also ensure any maintenance related issues are reported onto the online portal via our website at

Best Regards

Compass Block MGT

Heading: Coronavirus (CORVID19) – update
Date: 31/03/2020

If you are in self-isolation because you have or may have contracted Covid-19 it is vital that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can contact the rest of the residents to let them know that they should take extra precautions and increase their sanitation and so that, as necessary, we can organise a deep clean of the communal areas in accordance with PHE guidance.

When you contact us, please can you also advise how you are organising deliveries, particularly food, to your apartment and how rubbish is to be disposed of. Please remember: –

  • rubbish should only be placed outside of your apartment door at a specific time for collection.
  • that whoever is picking up the rubbish should be properly protected.
  • that all rubbish must be double bagged.
  • rubbish which contains personal waste (e.g. tissues) and cleaning cloths must be isolated within the flat for 72 hours before being disposed of in communal bin stores.

We would also ask that you also let us know if you become aware that any of your neighbours have gone into self-isolation.

For further useful guidance regarding isolation and social distancing please go to

Heading: Coronavirus (CORVID19) – update
Date: 24/03/2020

If you wish to speak to a member of staff by phone but are experiencing any problems getting through, please email [email protected]. Please leave your name, phone number, first line of your address and a quick summary of your enquiry in order that we may forward onto the relevant member of staff to respond to you.

Heading: Coronavirus (CORVID19)
Date: 18/03/2020

Details: As you will be aware, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is spreading across the country and is a cause for concern for all of us. It is anticipated that COVID-19 will cause disruption to all businesses and to our day-to-day lives over the coming weeks and months.

As the government’s guidance is likely to change as time passes, we would like to make you aware we have a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) in place to enable us to maintain a level of service during these unprecedented and difficult times.

Our office is currently open, but we have systems in place to allow our staff to work remotely if required. However, in the event that our BCP is put into effect and our office has to close, even with key staff working from home and engineers/contractors in the field, it is highly likely that you will experience some disruption in the services provided due to reduced capability. We will do whatever we can to minimise any such disruption but would ask for your patience and understanding while we work to maintain services during this period.

You will appreciate this is an evolving situation. We will continue to act on the advice provided by Public Health England and will inform you if there is any material change to our business continuity. 

For further information and the latest advice regarding CORVID-19, please visit: –

As it important that we are all kept up to date about the spread of CORVID-19, we ask that you inform us immediately if you or if you know of anyone in your apartment block who has either been diagnosed with CORVID-19 or advised to self-isolate. We can then make the other residents and the building service contractors aware of the situation.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

Important – For Owners & Residents

To help protect the developments and individual properties during this period, we urge owners to ensure that all their electrical appliances, boilers, heaters, water supply, kitchen and bathroom plumbing are checked and maintained to minimise leaks.  For all owners & residents, please ensure that the security of the development is maintained by ensuring the communal doors are shut when entering and exiting the premises.  Please also be mindful of your neighbours regarding noise, especially during the day with more people having to work from home during this difficult period.

If anyone has any information on who this is causing these issues, please contact [email protected] or contact the office on 0121 236 5757 – option 2 (please ask for Judy Wyatt) as we wish to recover all costs from those responsible.  Please be assured that the source of the information will not be divulged to those we find responsible.
