Answer: In Phase 1, certain front gardens have not been conveyed to the property owners. These are fronting properties in such a prominent location that they affect and benefit the appearance and quality of the whole estate. Instead, for the time being, those gardens are being maintained by Newhall Projects, at a cost to each owner.
In a minority of cases, front gardens have been conveyed with the house to individual homeowners who wish to maintain the garden themselves – and they are obliged to do so to the highest standard.
However, where owners do not maintain their own gardens, the landscape contractor is prepared to do so at no extra cost to the Estate Service Charge. This is to ensure a consistently good appearance of the front gardens, benefitting the community as a whole.
