Over recent years, a few firms have grown extremely fat by taking a large slice of the Block Management market, having seen the massive profits that can be made from setting up a slick operation. In using the word ‘slick’ we aren’t referring to their levels of service towards the leaseholders and owners of properties, but to their investors satisfaction and profitability. One way they do this is by creating leases with high ground rents and by putting in sections which allow them to charge for almost every eventuality, something we at Hunters feel is completely immoral and most certainly not in the best interest of the residents, particularly the investment buyers who intend to rent out their investment. So we saw there was a demand and market for a straight talking, honest and hardworking firm to get involved.
As a result of this, we at Hunters have seen a huge rise in developments taking control of their own futures by turning them in to ‘Right To Manage’ companies. Because we already run a very successful and large rental portfolio, many of our clients have asked us to help them and then look after their developments. As a result Hunters have now set up a specialist Block Management department which runs alongside our current Lettings and Property Management departments.
In just 2 years, we have saved our clients thousands of pounds in service charge expenses, but what is far more important than that, they are now receiving the level of service and attention that allows them to just sit back and relax in the complete confidence that whatever it is, it has already been dealt with. Wherever possible, we use local contractors who are accountable and care about their reputation. It isn’t about being cheap, it’s about being good, but as is very often the case, because we don’t add to their bill, they are invariably cheaper than the former firm who were required to pay a commission to the previous Managing Agents.
It is called PEACE OF MIND AND VALUE FOR MONEY.
Whether you have homes based in Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath or Hassocks, if you feel that you aren’t getting VALUE FOR MONEY and that your Managing Agents isn’t listening to you yet still taking a large slice of your money, then please do call. 01444 254 400 choose option 4 and get straight through to our Block Management team.
