Property Management Services

Managing property was one of the first services offered by Joseph Parsons in the 1820’s.

Today property management services remain a core aspect of our business that we provide to both residential and commercial property clients. With ever increasing legislation covering this sector, it is important to know that your property and your tenants are in safe hands, relieving you of the burden of management administration.

Today, the firm is responsible for the management of more than 550 residential blocks comprising over 3,000 long-leasehold flats.

These properties are located along the south coast of England from Dover in the east to Bournemouth in the west and inland as far as the London suburbs.  Properties are managed by staff based at our Head Office in the City of Brighton and Hove and our office in Bognor Regis.  We manage a wide variety of property from modern purpose built blocks to listed period conversions.  Our clients range from private individuals, developers, investment companies, Residents Management companies and Right to Manage companies.

Our Property Managers are experienced and well trained.  They are backed by a dedicated Accounts Department using industry leading software.

We provide specialist advice on building defects diagnosis, repair, condition surveys, major works and contract administration.  In addition, further specialist areas such as dilapidation surveys, party walls awards, and health and safety surveys are available.

Insurance of the majority of buildings we manage is arranged by our own insurance department, including claims handling.

We are regulated by The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). We are also members of the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA) having been awarded ARMA Q accreditation in 2015 for the quality of our service.

If you are a lessee and are dissatisfied with your landlord or its managing agents but cannot afford or raise sufficient numbers to buy the freehold there are two avenues open to you.

firstly through the courts to seek the appointment of a manager and

secondly, if there are sufficient numbers, to claim the right to manage without having to prove that your landlord is failing in its obligations to manager and maintain the building.

If you are in dispute and are thinking of taking action against your landlord, one of our qualified surveyors would happily accept a court appointment to become the manager of your building.  We have successfully acted in this capacity on a number of occasions and still retain the management of some of these blocks.

We are also willing to act as managing agents for a Right to Manage company (RTM).

Appointing an experienced and regulated managing agent will relieve the Directors of the RTM company of the day-to-day pressure of responsibility. At Parsons Son & Basley we offer a wide range of services and will happily design a package that will suit you.

  • Collect and account for ground rents.
  • Collect and account for service charge monies.
  • Arrange and negotiate annual contracts for communal television, entry phone, cleaning and garden maintenance etc.
  • Advise on the appropriate cover and place building insurance at competitive rates.
  • Arrange for routine maintenance and repair.
  • Arrange for the specification and supervision of major works.
  • Advise and maintain compliance with fire and health and safety regulations
  • Prepare and agree annual service charge budgets.
  • Attend RTM company meetings.
  • Make regular site visits.
  • Liaise with and/or appoint a Company Secretary
  • Respond to pre-contract enquiries from both buyers and sellers of flats in the block.
  • Seek Landlord’s consents where needed.
  • And of course deal with the wide range of daily issues which will inevitably arise.
