Management Agreements

POS Landcare enter into the lease or transfer documents on new residential estates so an obligation to manage and maintain the open space areas is established direct with the house purchaser. 
The purchaser will pay an annual maintenance fee to POSL, commencing when the developer has laid out and established the open space to an acceptable standard, at which time the freehold will be transferred to POSL.

This method of a direct obligation with the purchaser negates the need for a resident’s management company and takes all responsibility for the open space away from the house purchaser.

The annual sum paid by the residents is an ‘all risks fixed fee’ which is increased in-line with inflation every three years using the retail price index. This takes away the risks associated with variable fee models where the residents pay for any and every eventuality, including vandalism, accidental damage etc.

The annual sums collected are placed into ‘one pot’ to ensure there are always sufficient funds to maintain the site by spreading the risk of escalating costs across many sites. 

The open space areas require a wide range of management skills to maintain the features which include grassland, woodland, shrub planting, private parking courts, equipped play areas, ponds, watercourses, surface water storage schemes and culverts, retaining walls, acoustic and security fencing, high and low level lighting and electric car charging points.

The operatives working on these sites are all directly employed by POS Landcare and have a wide range of skills which come from landscaping and engineering backgrounds.
