Property management

Property Management plays an important part within the Group and has a direct impact on our reputation and standing within the industry. We achieve this by working with our customers to deliver not only excellent customer service, but to provide enduring solutions to their long-term business needs.

Our team is from a wide cross section of backgrounds that helps us to bring new thinking into making property work for our occupiers. By carrying out the function in house we have been able to develop closer working relationships with our occupiers, understand their needs and meet and exceed their expectations.

Developing strong relationships with our service partners has helped us to deliver a standard and level of service charge that makes us a market leader. Our award winning service charge booklets clearly and simply outline our cost base. Transparency is our aim and to further enhance our offering we have implemented an occupier portal that gives our tenants direct access into our internal property management database for property management information.

We have a property management team within both the London and Retail Portfolios.

 

London Portfolio

The role of the combined asset and property management team is to add value and maximise income from the London property portfolio. To do this effectively, we divide the properties into two portfolios. Within these two teams, lies responsibility for both functions.

  • City, Docklands, Mid-town and South Bank
  • West End (including Victoria)

Our direct management approach enables us to remain close to our customers. With estate managers on site we are able to build up excellent day-to-day relationships providing a proactive, responsive and high level of service. This means we are able to exploit potential opportunities, taking advantage of our joined up approach to asset and property management.

Supported by central leasing, investment, finance and marketing services, the team are able to offer a complete solution.
