Heading: Noise
Date: 04/05/2020
Details:
A reminder to all residents that you live in a multi occupancy development.  Please be mindful of your neighbours regarding noise, especially during the day with more people having to work from home during this very difficult period and people working night shifts. Breach of lease charges will be incurred by those causing disturbance through noise.  Persistent noise issues may also be reported to the local Council who will take action.

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

Details: ISOLATION

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

Details: Following government guidelines, all staff for Compass Block Management are working remotely from home until further notice.  Please continue to report any block maintenance issues via our online reporting system. 

If you wish to speak to a member of staff by phone but are experiencing any problems getting through, please email enquiries@compass-bm.com.  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.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to maintain services as much as possible during this period.

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: –

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public

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.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Heading: URGENT – HEATING SYSTEMS
Date: 12/03/2020
Details: 
Please ensure that heating systems are regularly inspected and serviced as in the past three months we have seen two systems fail.

As your managing agents acting on behalf of the management company, we have no responsibility for ensuring owners keep their systems serviced.  Unfortunately, a number of these systems have failed in the past and claims are becoming bigger.  This will only mean the insurance policy will rocket on renewal.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Heading: Issue with Drains
Date: 09/01/2020
Details:
Please note that UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should items be placed down the toilets other than toilet paper.

Baby wipes and diapers are causing the drains to block up.  It is obviously costing money to keep calling out contractors to unblock the drains, not to mention the unpleasant situation is it causing for residents. For owners with tenants in situ, please relay this important information to your tenants thank you.

Charges will be incurred by anyone found to be ignoring these requests and causing the drains to block up.

Thank you for your urgent co-operation in this matter.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Heading: Car Parking
Date:
 28/10/19
Details:
A reminder to all residents that you are only permitted to park one vehicle within your allocated parking space.  Can we ask the owner of the red Citroen – registration number: DK64 XWJ to park within their own allocated parking space only and not park in other residents spaces or visitor space.  Can the owner of that vehicle also ensure that when parking up they park correctly within the space area.  Failure to park within correct allocated spacing will result in breach of lease charges being incurred.  Thanking you for your co-operation.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Heading: Cleaning
Date:
 19/07/19
Details:
Please note that the cleaner will not be attending during week commencing 29th July 2019 for one week due to holiday.  The cleaning fee for this period will not be charged.  Apologies for any inconvenience.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Heading: Issue with Drains
Date: 17/07/19
Details: 
We would like to remind all occupants that under no circumstances should items be placed down the toilets other than toilet paper.  Residents will note that recently the drainage system became blocked.  Severn Trent attended and unblocked from their side.  We also had to call out Dyno Rod to attend last Friday evening.  We understand that amongst some of the items removed, were nappies and wipes.

As Severn Trent have cleared from their side, we are advised that if the problem persists, we will need to call out Dyno Rod to attend.  The cost for future call outs and works by Dyno Rod will then need to be borne by residents as the service charge will not be sufficient to cover these additional costs.

Please ensure therefore that nothing but toilet paper is put down the toilets and that other waste is disposed of correctly in the recycling and waste bins provided.  For owners with tenants in situ, please relay this information to them thank you.

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

 

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Heading: Issue with Drains
Date: 28/06/19

Details: We have been trying to ascertain what the issue is with the drains and the source of the problem.  Having phoned round to several companies and the Council, we have been advised that the issue may be down to a blocked pipe belonging to Severn Trent Water.  We have therefore been speaking with Severn Trent about this who will be sending out someone to investigate.  They have been made fully aware of the situation and the impact it is having on residents.  They advise that they will get someone out within the next 48 hours (that is the maximum timescale) but do aim to get someone out sooner than that.  We will keep you updated.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Heading: Recycling
Date:
09/05/18
Details: It has been brought to our attention that the recycling waste does not appear to have been collected for some weeks now. We have reverted to the Council to find out whether there has been any issue with collections and reiterating to them that their website states collections are collected weekly with the next refuse and recycling collections due on 11/05/2018, and then on 18/05/2018. 

Heading: Communal Hallways
Date:
20/04/18
Details: A reminder that under no circumstances should items be stored or left in any of the communal corridors or hallways. For leaseholders with tenants in situ, please ensure that this is relayed to your tenants – thank you. 


Heading: Issue with Intercoms
Date:
06/04/18
Details: Following issues experienced with the intercoms, an engineer will be on site on Friday 13th April 2018 at 9.00am. Please ensure that access is provided. Letters are going out in tonight’s post. Thanking you for your co-operation.
