Developers

Residential developers deserve specialist block management advice long before projects near completion

As professional property managers and Chartered Quantity Surveyors we fully understand your needs as a developer marketing your block of flats or private estate.

Developers like you, who have residential apartments for sale or are nearing completionwill need to advise prospective purchasers on future running costs. They will want to know the estimated service charge budget and who the property managing agent setting these charges will be. How else can you successfully market your properties ?

Of course as a developer you have a wide choice of property block managing agents however why not choose one that can add value ? Appointing an RICS Chartered professional and Corporate member of ARMA delivers a strong message to prospective purchasers. Not onlyabout the development itself but also about you and your reputation as a developer.

The clear image to your clients and the industry in general should be one of high quality
and professional standards and we believe that the choice of agent is a key element in obtaining the best return on your property sales.

The importance of confidence in your product from buyers cannot be overstated and the benefit of quality assurance for new home owners will reflect the standing and brand of
the developer and its team.

The pre-sale services we offer to developers which are both flexible and comprehensive include; advising on suitability of specifications and finishes with future management in
mind, the content of the property lease in respect of practical maintenance and repairs,
estimating a realistic and affordable service charge budget for circulation with your the
sales team and potential purchasers. Other specialist services are available on request. We would also look to shoulder some of the burden of purchaser enquiries regarding possible defects. Effective management of this process requires that we obtain specific details of developer warranties and guarantees giving a clear understanding of responsibilities in this regard.

In conjunction with conveyancers and solicitors arranging and agreeing sales we can also help deal with service charge and maintenance enquiries in respect of the lease.

Right from the start of the sales process, some developers prefer to set up a property management company to be collectively owned and run by the purchasers and leaseholders. We are able to arrange set up and provide an ongoing, comprehensive company secretary service covering all duties and aspects of the company administration including compliance with the company’s Memorandum and Articles of Association.
