Our tailored service is designed to optimise the letting and management of your investments
The private rented sector has grown dramatically in recent years and is set to expand further as larger numbers of tenants rent for longer periods.
Historically this market has been dominated by private landlords with small portfolios. However that is changing quickly, with the emergence of corporate investors and developers entering the PRS or build to rent sectors, looking to capitalise on the increased demand for high quality rented accommodation to meet the needs of discerning tenants.
Whether you are a major house builder, portfolio investor, housing association or other non-profit organisation, achieving the best performance from your PRS or build to rent portfolios requires a flexible and agile team that is dedicated to meeting your goals.
We are uniquely positioned to do this in London, backed by our local knowledge, international reach and our comprehensive range of services that we can tailor to suit your needs.
Our 40 years of experience in the letting and management of residential and mixed use schemes in London from the ground up makes us the first choice for many corporate property investors and developers. Our combined portfolio of let and managed properties exceeds 16,000 and, at any one time, we are holding £40m of clients’ funds.
From tenant finding to block management and professional services, our tailored and measurable approach means we really do add long term value to our clients’ property assets and reduce exposure to risks and shortfalls.
Clients can use any combination of the services they need, which we support with integrated software and bespoke management reporting.
