• AGM – Monday April 1st 2019, Ham Christian Centre 8pm

All are welcome to attend this meeting at the Ham Christian Centre on Monday April 1st at 8pm. As an overview the finances are in good shape and the committee will be recommending the we keep the annual maintenance charge at the same rate of £150 (£110 for prompt payment).

  • Sad news

Our accountant Richard Millard passed away on 3rd January 2019. It goes without saying we are very grateful for his help and expertise he has offered over many years.

Can I ask you to make sure no further correspondence is sent to his Langham Gardens address.

  • We’ve changed our name

Our company name is now the LOCKSMEADE OWNERS LTD (LOL)

The reason for the change is the constant misinterpretation of our true function by solicitors representing new owners of property on the development. The old name seemed to suggest that we were a company which, in some way, was managing the freehold of the properties on the development. This led to excess correspondence between ourselves and incoming solicitors to convince them otherwise.

  • AMC Payments – No more cheques please!

This year, subject to the AGM’s approval, we will no longer accept cash or cheques as a means of paying the Annual Maintenance Charge. Cheques cause us many more adminstrational woes.

  • Paying the AMC

BACS transfers on the internet or at your bank are much easier to deal with and we have a reliable record of the payments made. We ask for you cooperation with this matter.

Our new Santander account is

Locksmeade Owners Ltd.

Account number: 37017598

Sort Code: 09-01-29

  • Our new accountant:

Rafal Szymański who runs a company called Firmindex at: 18, Udeny Park Road, Teddington TW11 9BG. He is keen to update our payments system and encourage more electronic methods.

  • Fancy joining the committee?

It’s not that bad! We meet about 8 times a year over a bottle of wine at one of our houses. The meetings are generally over in an hour.
