Property Management

Local and overseas investors and landlords trust us to maintain their properties.  

We manage deposits, collect rent and adhere to legal obligations and safety requirements for our landlords. Our large portfolio consists of more than 3,100 properties across the Capital and is backed by our dedicated team of experienced and qualified property managers.

Our service is fully flexible. From maintenance, caretaking and financial management, to property investment advice and compliance, we tailor our service to suit your requirements.

In our experience, managed tenancies tend to last longer and many corporate tenants prefer them for ease and efficiency. For landlords, it also means less time negotiating and liaising with tenants, dealing with the day to day management and upkeep of your rental property.

We ensure that our Property Managers are either NFOPP (National Federation of Property Professionals) qualified or training to be. This means you can be sure our property managers have the experience and know how to deliver the right result for you and your property.

For larger scale developments with over 30 units or more, contact our specialist block and portfolio management team.

Caretaking services

As part of our property management package, we offer vacant property care service tailored to meet your long or short term requirements; providing you peace of mind that your investment is taken care of.

A caretaking service is usually available to owners whose properties are left unoccupied for periods before a tenancy starts, after a tenancy has ended, or even between tenancies. Vacant property care helps to comply with terms of your insurance policy. The service includes:

  • Key holding
  • Repairs and maintenance carried out by qualified and experienced tradesmen
  • Arranging of pre-occupancy works - we will help prepare the property for letting by instructing and overseeing works up to £1,200 (inclusive of VAT) with no extra fees or charges
  • Dealing with utilities in your absence where applicable

At an additional cost, we can also provide a void period service which includes:

  • Regular property visits, tailored to suit your insurance needs. For example, ensuring the heating comes on during winter, the property is aired and any potential issues are reported back to you.
