Why would you wont to put sea vista out to tender? i was up there at the weekend and it looks like to management company up there now, is doing a great job. Pool looks great and gardens look fantastic.



All management companies are as bad as each other, looks like you have a good one there.



Good luck with your search!

Tendering by law is compulsory, which as yet has never happened at our site i only have the best interests of the site in mind.

Ok did not realise that tendering for a contract is compulsory?



just seems like in your other posts you seem to have problems with your committee and your management company, if i lived on there i would be really happy the way the site looks, you should go and see some of the sites on this island some of them are a right mess.



p.s don't mean to pry into your business, was just intrigued why you would wont to change.

I thought your site had been to tender in the past as Jepa Estates were the management company originally and the First Consult took the tender the following year...??

I think it is good to go to tender keeps the M.C on there toes as they will have to keep been on top of the game or lose the site.



And it may make some of that not so good M.C. pull up there socks

In my opinion reading the various threads about complex's /shared amenities places, many issues come down to three things

1/ expats with personality clash problems against somebody or a company because things are not to their liking, even if in a small minority.

2/ people not paying fees timeously, thus causing maintenance companies cash flow problems.

3/ peoples expectation levels are too high for the payments being made for service level agreements.



To qualify my last point, from what I gather the average annual maintenance fees in the TRNC on a complex are in the region of 800, plus another approximate 200 for local taxes, eg: bin uplift etc. total around 1000, for this you expect to get the grounds maintained, the pools regularly cleaned, the communal areas kept clean etc. and the rubbish disposed of, this is still a heck of a lot cheaper than the average council tax we all have to pay in the UK, so why do some of you continue to baulk at making the payments

Continues

If you were not prepared to pay, why oh why did you purchase on a communal estate.



And yes I have heard all the arguments about unfinished places etc. but that is the norm here not only for estates but for private villas as well, and is not the fault of any Maintenance company.

I agree Msg 9 just one point we do pay the equivalant of council tax too which is supposed to be for rubbish collection so in a small way we pay twice for one service. I live on a complex and all we ask is for residents to pay towards the pool and garden upkeep.Its a constant struggle to get the money but who are the first to moan if the pool is not clean so all the family can use it at the weekend? Yes youve guessed the non payers.

How do they think all the table chairs parasols etc are paid for by magic? When there is a problem with pool mechanics where does the money come from for repairs? They must live in cloud cuckoo land.

NCMan, this thread has been reasonable up to now and deniz1 has a valid point, message 11 claire pointed out in message 9 that there was an extra charge for bin uplift eg rubbish collection, most m/c have a scope of works which is usually agreed with the committee at the outset, that is of course if there is a properly elected committee.

It was interesting to note the point Geoff made on the now closed thread about peoples regrets, how true, humility is something that some find impossible to possess.

If any maintenance company is to tender for a site they will probably do their research first, and I must agree that First consult do a good job and if the majority on Sea vistas are happy then they will stay.

I really do hope that you are not in a small minority bazzagirl or you may well end up making a rod for your own back
