What is Knights Grove Management Company?

Knights Grove (North Baddesley) Management Company was set up by the developers to manage the areas of land that are left over when the estate was built. For the leasehold residents in the flats, Knights Grove Management Company also manages the communal areas and looks after the structure of the buildings.
Building insurance for the flats and applicable garages is also maintained by the management company.
Until May 2014 the Directors of Knights Grove were Directors of RMG (formally CPM) who were appointed as managing agents by the developers Taylor Wimpey.
At an EGM in May 2014 the first resident Director was appointed and shortly after, two other resident Directors were appointed.
The RMG directors stood down when the resident Directors were appointed. RMG ceased involvement in the estate on 31 October 2014.
A number of new directors have been appointed in 2021
