Commercial Property Management

Our commercial property management portfolio comprises commercial properties across the UK as well as the prestigious Crown Estate marine portfolio in East Anglia and the River Thames.

Property management is a broad subject. It requires a range of skills and involves much more than managing finance and rent collection. Essentially, we are the linchpin between the owner of the property, and the tenants.

Our commercial property management services are flexible and can be as comprehensive as you need. We can advertise your property, source appropriate tenants, organise viewings and ensure the legal aspects of the property process are adhered to throughout your contracts. We conduct regular inspections of properties, arrange repairs and manage any improvement that is needed. Equally, we can take a step back and manage a particular area where you may need guidance.

  • We maintain our clients’ property to attract and retain tenants in the most cost effective way possible
  • We set rents creating a specific balance between a maximum level that is realistic for the current market and one that is sustainable to the tenant
  • We ensure our clients are kept up to date with changes in regulations that are relevant and necessary to them and their property
  • We listen, helping with any property management scenario and making the process as easy and pain free as possible

As a small team, experienced in property management that’s backed by a dedicated software system, we have a good understanding of how to effectively liaise with tenants due to the diverse range of properties we manage. Our exemplary service has meant many of our clients have instructed us to manage properties outside of East Anglia and we consistently retain our management instructions for long periods.

Our Services

Clients choose to work with our friendly, professional team time and time again because we consistently deliver a quality service that makes their lives easier.
