Connaught Mews Management - About us

Connaught Mews SE18 Management Company Ltd (CMSE18MCL) was originally formed around 1996 by the residents who had purchased the freehold forming a commonhold style limited management company. It is a non-profit organisation run by the first directors on a voluntary and unpaid basis with the aim of ensuring that services and problems are handled cost effectively where possible reducing the cost of works.

Our other main role is to estimate and set the level of the service charge each year. Acorn Estate Management provide us with the actual costs from the previous year and estimates are made on past cost increases and also on any major works needing to be carried out.

How do Acorn Estate Management fit in?

Acorn Estate Management were employed in 2019 to help with the administration and property/estates management. This includes contracting work on our behalf. They help with obtaining quotes for works, service charge collection, management of larger works, actioning general works and taking general enquiries. When a larger problem is reported, CMSE18MCL decide on appropriate action and then ensure Acorn Estate Management are contacted to arrange for the works to be carried out. Acorn Estate Management have also been instructed to pass on certain queries for us to deal with directly.

Due to changes in the law payments must now be made directly to Acorn Estate Management. CMSE18MCL still retain full access to the accounts and still authorise all major expenditure, as such Acorn Estate Management are not able to act on their own without our permission - this was a condition of their employment.


If you are a currently a leaseholder at Connaught Mews, we would recommend that you purchase your freehold. Apart from increasing the value of your property, it would allow you to take a more active role in the running of the Mews. We are always on the look out for people to become actively involved with helping to run the Mews. The more jobs that we can carry out ourselves means the less we need to pay contractors to carry out the works for us.
