According to Companies House (UK’s registrar of companies) records, there are over 60,000 registered Residents Management Companies (RMCs) in the UK region, with the highest concentration along the South Coast, South East, Bristol & Bath areas, North West and the South Midlands.
Primarily, RMCs aim to protect the interests of the leaseholders by managing the common parts of a building such as roofs, gardens, driveways, etc., ideally, owning a flat in an apartment building managed by an RMC, provides you greater control over the future management of your property.
However, according to the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA), the Residents Management Companies [RMCs] are a low-profit, people-intensive industry, with outdated adoption of digital technology. There is a lack of seamless digital collaboration between property management and their residents’ management services.
Due to the overlapping competition from the real estate players, RMCs have mainly curated their service offerings around the property’s building management services and moved away from providing a consistent service experience to the residents of the same property.
There are opportunities in property management as the industry is scrambling to recover from the COVID-19 health crisis. Property managers are feeling the pressure of shrinking margins and cash-flow disruptions. Going forward, property management firms need to leverage emerging digital technologies to overhaul their business models from top to bottom.
