Information for tenants
On Sunday 11th October, at a Special General Meeting of all owners on the Citadel Quay Estate, over 60 owners voted unanimously to form an Owners Association and related Executive Committee.
A new constitution was approved and 8 owners were elected as committee members.
The following general Mission Statement was adopted.
"To advance the interests of all property owners at Citadel Quay and maintain or improve their property values by monitoring, developing and promoting the overall management of the estate and improving the quality of life of all owners and residents, in line with the Deed of Conditions.
In discussion it was agreed that owners must work with the factors James Gibb to ensure that the estate continues to be effectively managed. Among the major goals identified for the Association and committee were:
To seek the support and involvement of all owners and tenants in improving the quality of life on the estate and developing the sense of community on the estate and with surrounding communities.
To create a list of estate rules which would highlight the main provisions of the Deed of Conditions which lay down the rights and obligations of owners and factors in a simple and readable form. This list would be circulated to all owners and arrangements will be brought forward to have owners formally adopt the rules and make arrangements for all tenants to sign up to these rules as part of their rental agreement.
To ensure structured forward planning is in place in respect of anticipated future expenditure and major works.
To establish financial control and to monitor estate costs and the level of bad debt on the estate to ensure that robust procedures are in place to recover such debts and that they are kept to a minimum.
To ensure better control of outside contractors on the estate and to encourage the employment of local services where they are available.
Details of the committee members and the new constitution will be published shortly along with dates of committee meetings which owners are welcome to attend.
