Car Parking

Each apartment has its own allocated car parking space (one per apartment), at the front and rear of the building. The rear car park can be accessed either from the east or west side of the building (first or second property entrance off Marine Parade).

The building overhangs part of the rear car park on the west side and is therefore, height restricted when using the second entrance.

There is a single visitor’s parking space on the east side of the building at the rear.

Short term and overnight parking is available on Marine Parade.

Communal Services


The internal communal areas are cleaned regularly, as are the external communal windows. All other internal cleaning and external window cleaning is the responsibility of the Leaseholders.
The waste bins are located at the rear of the building in a purpose made “bin building”. The emptying of the bins is the responsibility of Teignbridge District Council, South Devon. The bins are regularly cleaned by an outside contractor.

Buildings Insurance

Building insurance is maintained by the Management Company. Contents insurance is the responsibility of the Leaseholders.


All apartments were originally fitted with fanned flue combination gas boilers, made by Saunier Duval. Responsibility for servicing boilers is with the Leaseholders.

Each apartment has access to a utilities cupboard on each floor adjacent to the staircase/lift, where Meter readings for Gas, Water and Electricity can be taken.

Responsibility for services with the communal area are with the Management Company, and with Leaseholders for services within the apartments.

The building has lighting within the communal areas and emergency lighting is checked and maintained on a monthly basis.

Property Lease

All Leaseholders are bound by the property lease, setting out what can and can’t be done at the property.

Fire Risk

The building has a Fire Dry Riser located at the rear of the building on the east side.

Each apartment is fitted with a mains-operated smoke detector, which must be replaced every ten years by the Leaseholder.

An independent fire risk assessment is carried out regularly and the Management Company and Leaseholders are notified of any items which need to be attended to.

Service Charges

An annual service charge is payable to Crown Property Management Ltd by all Leaseholders. The service charge is reviewed and agreed each year at the AGM held by the Management Company, for which all Leaseholders are invited to attend.
