    Get on to hertford council and ask them as they will know who does all their flats
    Then ask when they are up for tender and put in a quote
    As for the others i don't know
    I got some by going in to local estate agents as they deal with a lot of tennants propertys for landlords and getting myself put on their list of tradesmen so now my name is on their laminated list on the wall as their window cleaner
    You get the odd job here and there and get to know who runs these blocks when you do them

    You generally find some form of estate info. board around the entrances to these places. Look for a logo / contact number. Even if it's private there's generally a 'commitee' made up from the residents. Just try knocking a few up and ask.....' would you like your windows cleaned ?' They'll soon put you straight as to who's running the show. And as Davey say's , get in touch with the council to see what's going out for tender. Trouble is it's generally 'jobs for the boys' with the council. I only give out one kind of backhander.

    I'm sure someone on a past thread said you can look online to see who has the tenders for the council, i know they have to disclose that information as anyone has the right to know
    Freedom of information type stuff

    Doing work for the council and housing associations require all the health and safety docs as long as you are compliant you can then win some big jobs
