Never before has so little of what a tenant pays reached the landlord’s pocket. With market rents falling since the economic crisis, a large proportion is spent on operating costs. It’s more important than ever to get property management right.
To us, successful property management requires uncompromising professionalism, dedication, and an ability to strike delicate balances that only comes with years of experience. We develop good yet firm relationships with our tenants. Tenants need to feel good in their building but must not neglect their own responsibilities. When purchasing goods and instructing subcontractors, the challenge is to balance cost and quality. Often the service that looks most cost effective at first glance is not the most favourable. We are always conscious of the property’s cashflow and financing circumstances to ensure the successful management of your investment. Great property management ultimately means dedication to our client and transparency in our communications. A blend of in-house and contract services ensures that the client is only contacted when we need input. Our job is to provide help, not to hassle!

• Tenant and contract management

• Control of costs and expenditures
• Tendering and supervision of subcontractors and utility suppliers
• Supervision of facility management
• Preparation of annual service charge reconciliation
