Adding homeowners’ rights policies over the past 20 years, with PENTAD we are taking another huge leap forward ahead of forthcoming legislation to revolutionise this sector. This offering includes a new-style agreement and a free service to housebuilders to ensure a smooth and cost-effective delivery, implementation, hand-over and exit.
Greenbelt is introducing a new model for the management of communal open spaces - PENTAD. This new product embraces the best elements and removes the concerns around the most commonly used existing solutions:
- Residential Management Company (RMC) – Homeowners own the open spaces
- Manager Ownership (MO) – Management company owns the open spaces
|Guaranteed professional stewardship of Open Spaces||✖||✔||✔|
|Guaranteed Handover and exit for housebuilders
|3rd Party takes Legal Liability - Directors & Financial||✖||✔||✔|
|Value for money / price cap / appeal process||✖||✔||✔|
|Legally guaranteed ownership rights for homeowners||✔||✖||✔|
|Addresses lender concerns around open-ended charges||✔||✖||✔|
Whilst RMC agreements have been more widely adopted housebuilders have increasingly found these problematic to exit from. Homeowners have recognised that, along with having direct control, the liability and risks are also being placed directly onto them as well as the management responsibilities. Greenbelt have sought to address the MO agreement concerns by implementing various consumer focussed policies.
PENTAD combines the best elements of the RMC and MO solutions to empower homeowners by giving them choice and provides housebuilders with a future-proofed solution for the 2020s.
Introducing the Delivery Pathway
As well as our new PENTAD product, Greenbelt are introducing a new Delivery Pathway to assist in all aspects of open space delivery. Housebuilders can take advantage of this complimentary service and gain access to Greenbelt’s wealth of in-house experience, skills and knowledge in horticulture, biodiversity, implementation and planning regulations.
The Greenbelt Delivery Team will provide housebuilders/developers a highly efficient, experienced and seamless end-to-end service for open space delivery:
- Reviewing planning conditions and implementation plans
- Overseeing the implementation of the open spaces
- Auditing all work completed for planning compliance and horticultural integrity
- Maintaining these areas once completed to ensure bedding-in, biodiversity gain and minimise costs
- Obtaining local council discharge of the completed open spaces works
These services will minimise the time and money builder-developers invest with earlier handover of maintenance responsibilities to Greenbelt while also guaranteeing a clean handover and exit.
