    Managing agents recommendation please. 14th Sep 17 at 4:51 PM
    I live in a road of 16 properties, all detached freehold houses built 10 years ago.
    The road is unadopted. There are no communal buildings, only the road plus the lighting bollards and some communal planting along the verges.
    The road was set up with a residents' association and managing agents.
    Despite the road being so small, the managing agents are charging a fortune and are plainly not interested in us as they have bigger fish to fry.
    I think we should take over the management in house but the directors (my husband and an elderly neighbour) are reluctant; they don't want to chase up fellow neighbours for unpaid service charges and like to have the back up of a professional management team especially for the legal side.
    I have taken over company secretarial as they were charging over 400 p.a. for hardly any work. I could do the accountancy as there is only an electricity bill plus gardeners to pay.
    Does anyone know of/could anyone recommend a good light touch managing agent/firm with reasonable charges? We are in NW Surrey.
