_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Heading: Bin Store
Date: 27/05/2020

Details: Despite repeated reminders and circulars, some residents are still not disposing of their rubbish correctly.  This is causing major issues and caused the bin men to refuse to empty the bins!  Rubbish is only to be disposed of in the bins provided and NOT LEFT ON THE BIN STORE FLOOR!!  Residents are responsible for disposing of bulky items themselves by either getting in touch with the Council or taking to the local tip themselves.  Residents found to be just dumping their rubbish outside of the bins WILL incur breach of lease charges.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Heading: Access Issues
Date: 13/05/2020

Details: The bin men have been unable to attend today due to a vehicle blocking access.  Please ensure you only park in the spaces provided and do not block or hinder access for others.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

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

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.

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: Car Park Allocation
Date: 10/01/2020

Details: Please be advised, you are to only park in your designated parking space which is clearly shown in your Lease or Deed. 

You must park your car within the lines of your car parking space and you may not park in any other space or on any other part of the property at any time.

You must make sure that you do not prohibit others from parking in their space at any time.

Please note that breach of Lease / Deed charges may be incurred if you do not park correctly.

Thank you for your co-operation.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Heading: Security Issue
Date: 10/01/2020

Details: Despite regular reminders, it appears that someone is still regularly leaving the front door on the latch.  This must stop immediately!

THIS IS A BREACH IN SECURITY, JEOPARDISING NOT ONLY THE SECURITY of THE BUILDING BUT THE VALIDITY OF THE BUILDINGS INSURANCE.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD THE DOOR BE LEFT ON THE LATCH.  FAILURE TO COMPLY WILL RESULT IN BREACH OF LEASE CHARGES BEING INCURRED BY THOSE IGNORING THIS SECURITY REQUIREMENT AND FURTHER LEGAL ACTION BEING TAKEN.

For owners with tenants in situ, please ensure that this is relayed immediately to your tenants as you are responsible for your tenants adhering to the Terms & Conditions of your Lease.

If anyone becomes aware of residents leaving the door on the latch, please report the apartment number concerned in confidence to Compass Block Management via our online reporting system.

Thank you for your urgent cooperation.

Heading: Security Issue & Waste Disposal
Date:
 03/10/19
Details: 

SECURITY ISSUE

Please note that under no circumstances should the front door be kept on the latch.   We have received a number of reports that someone is doing this.  Should we become aware of the residents that are doing this then breach of lease charges will be incurred as this is jeopardising the security and insurance of the building.

WASTE DISPOSAL

Further to our circular in August 2019, we are aware that some residents are ignoring requests to use the bin store correctly.  All rubbish is to be disposed of correctly in the bins provided.  There appears to be a real issue with bulky items being dumped in and around the residential bins, contaminated items being dumped and bags just left on the floor.  The bin men will not take way this rubbish.

Please would all residents be considerate to those paying the service charge for this development, not to mention the health risks this can cause for all.

Please note that all tenants, landlords/leaseholders are being contacted in this regard in order that this matter may urgently be resolved.  If owners experience any further problems or are aware of residents not adhering to the regulations, then please do not hesitate to report via our online maintenance system (www.compass-bm.com).

Thank you for your cooperation.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Heading: Waste Disposal
Date:
 28/08/19
Details: 
We have been informed again by Rushcliffe Borough Council that they WILL NOT EMPTY THE RECYCLING BINS IF THEY ARE CONTAMINATED.

This appears to be a real issue where bulky items are being dumped in and around the residential bins and contaminated items are being dumped into the bins.

We would like to remind all residents that the disposal of bulky items and emptying recycling bins due to being contaminated is not included in the waste collection service and a fee is raised by the agents of the Local Authority in order to remove.   

Residents are responsible for arranging and paying for their own collection should they wish to dispose of bulky items. When bulky items are left on the premises, we are forced to arrange a collection on the residents’ behalf, the fee for which is added to the annual service charge.

Please would all residents be considerate to those paying the service charge for this development, not to mention the health risks this can cause for all.

Please note that all tenants, landlords/leaseholders are being contacted in this regard in order that this matter may urgently be resolved.  Circulars are being sent out to all about the recycling bins and how to use.  If owners experience any further problems or are aware of residents not adhering to the regulations, then please do not hesitate to report via our online maintenance system (www.compass-bm.com).  Thank you for your cooperation.

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: Door Security
Date: 15/04/19

Details: Further to our circular back in July 2018, this is another reminder to all to ensure that the doors are closed firmly behind you on entering and exiting the building.  Under no circumstances, should the doors be put on the latch or left open.  This is to maximise security of the building and to ensure that the building is insured.  For all leaseholders with tenants in situ, can you please remind your tenants not to put the door on the latch or leave open as we have received several reports that some residents are doing this.  Thank you for your co-operation.
