Property Management

Our extensive Property Management department has been built up over many years, providing us with great knowledge and experience in all aspects of Property Management. We manage a large number of Commercial and Residential properties, including some of Surrey's finest residential estates, over 200 separate blocks of flats, as well as many large commercial portfolios for established clients.

Residential Block Management

Management of residential blocks of flats on behalf of private Property Management companies and public authorities

Block of Flats Management is one of our key services. Our dedicated team of property managers and accounts staff aim to provide a personal and professional service to facilitate the management of your block of flats or private estate. We believe that efficient management can only be achieved by establishing a good working relationship with residents, having regard to provisions contained within leases and relevant legislation.

Most of the properties that we manage are within a twenty mile radius of our offices. We carry out regular inspections, and employ tried and tested independent local contractors.

We are bound by the strict accounting regulations of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA) governing the administration of client's money, and we are firmly committed to compliance with the RICS Management Code for Residential Properties.

Our block management service includes:

  • Calculation and collection of service charges.
  • Appointment and payment of contractors such as gardeners and cleaners.
  • Arranging proactive maintenance, repairs and redecoration.
  • Arranging and administering building insurance, including claims handling.
  • Dealing with general correspondence and queries.

Estate Management

Management of communal land, roads and assets, typically owned by a Residents Management Company whose Freehold Properties are located within the Estate.

We specialise in managing the communal assets of private estates. These are often gated communities with private roads and drains which require inspection and maintenance and management (especially during periods of ice and snow). Many have communally owned trees which we ensure are regularly independently inspected and maintained. We ensure that electric gates and intercom systems are maintained and CCTV systems are managed. We are also successful in managing private pumping stations and ensuring these are brought up to a standard to be adopted by the local water authorities.

Some Estates are regularly the subject of planning applications for significant extensions or demolitions and new builds. We have developed strategies to manage these operations ensuring other residents are not adversely affected.

Our Estate management team are able to assist in creating and managing budgets with regular financial reporting to Directors.

Our estate management service includes:

  • Calculation and collection of service charges
  • Appointment and payment of contractors and service providers
  • Arranging proactive maintenance, repairs and management
  • Managing Capital Expenditure projects
  • Arranging and administering asset insurance with Public Liability, including claims handling
  • Arranging Director and Officer Insurance
  • Dealing with general correspondence and queries
  • Providing Company Secretarial services

Solicitor, Woking

"I just wanted to say thank you for your assistance and swift response yesterday. Mr G. did exchange contracts and will be moving just before Christmas. It would not have happened without your help."

Estate Agent, Morden

"The reason for my email is to tell you how pleased I am with the general condition of the block. The new entrance door and mail boxes are really super, great quality and give an extremely good first impression. The other advantage is that not only does the entrance door look good it is also very secure too. The common parts are pristine. I knew that I could rely on HES to keep them well maintained but driving round the development, the blocks you manage are outstanding. It's always a pleasure to deal with you - Thank you to you and your colleagues for a great job. If only all Managing Agents were like you!"
