Our approved contractors are on call 24 hours a day and the Directors of your company will also hold emergency mobile numbers for a Director of Coupe Property Consultants.
In doing so they are reassured that their Annual Returns and annual accounts are submitted correctly and on time to Companies House, thereby avoiding any financial penalties.
For example, during a particularly harsh winter in 2013, one of our blocks suffered severe frost damage to high level stonework which resulted in substantial sections of stonework becoming dislodged and falling to ground. Due to the urgent nature of the repairs required, the Directors agreed with Johannes’ recommendation that she make an application to the LVT for dispensation from the statutory consultation procedure, which would have delayed works by at least two months.
On the day of the hearing Johanne met the panel at the property for a site visit and later that same day successfully presented their case at the LVT hearing. Dispensation was granted, allowing the urgent works to proceed without delay.
Our surveyors are passionate about engaging local, skilled craftsmen and promote the use of natural, sustainable materials wherever possible. We remain conscious however that reserve funds are always limited and that such buildings inevitably have further requirements to fund.
When proposing or overseeing works we work closely with the local Conservation Officers and over many years have built a solid relationship with them. Our team are experienced in preparing successful applications and, where necessary liaising with various governing and advisory bodies.
