Heading: Urgent – No Smoking Policy
Details: Please note that smoking is not permitted under any circumstances in any of the communal areas of the Quad Building.
To do so is a breach of the lease and as such anyone failing to comply with this condition, will be charged with a breach of lease charge.
We would also encourage anyone who suspects drugs activity in the development, to contact the police. The police advise that even though someone may be using drugs within their own premises, this does not make it legal.
We thank you for your urgent co-operation in this matter.
Heading: HIU – access required
Details: Letters are being sent out to all leaseholders and residents to advise that the contractor, Arron Lawrence of Netelect, will require access into your apartments. He has been requested by the freeholder to carry out alterations to the HIU (boiler located in the apartments) as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
A timesheet will be located on the notice boards in each block for you to input your requested time slot. Arron will require an estimated 15 – 20 minutes per apartment to carry out necessary works with the dates and times detailed below:-
Arcus – 12th November 2019 – 07:00 – 15:55
Bar – 13th November 2019 – 07:00 – 15:55

Thanking you for your co-operation.
Heading: Lift not working
Details: We can confirm that Uriah has reported that the lift is not working at Circus. This has been logged out under reference WO1106945.
Heading: Security Incident
Details: We have been advised on an incident which occurred on 17th March 2019 around 12.30pm. A man and a woman were noted to be standing in the lobby on the first floor at Circus. Later the couple were found to be in the downstairs lobby inside the front door with the man sitting on the floor. The couple were approached to see if they needed any help. They advised that they did not live at Circus or were even guests of any residents. They advised that they had no money to get home and appeared to be either drunk or under the influence of drugs. Highcross Security were called by which time the woman was found to be slumped on the ground. Having managed to rouse the woman, security managed to persuade the couple to leave the building and the door was firmly shut behind them. We have received reports that on several occasions the double doors with access to Free School Lane have been left open. It may be that access is being gained via this entrance.
We ask all residents to be extra vigilant in light of this incident. Please ensure that all doors are shut behind you when entering and exiting the building. If you do see that someone has left a door open can you please close.
Thanking you for your co-operation.
Heading: HIU Servicing
Details: With winter approaching we recommend that all leaseholders arrange their seasonal HIU servicing. This servicing reduces the risk of fault and downtime during the cold weather and should be carried out twice a year per manufacturer’s guidelines. Please visit www.highcrossmaintenance.co.uk for information on prices and booking.
Heading: Biannual Lighting Inspection
Details: The biannual lighting inspections will be carried out this week. All internal and external lights across the developed will be checked and maintained.
