Block Management is a specialist service designed to help owners and landlords manage and maintain their leasehold apartment blocks, houses and new-build developments. We work in a preventative, proactive and routine way to manage general building maintenance, major works, tenants, service charge payments, contracts and assets.
Our dedicated block management team was set up alongside our lettings department in 2011, in direct response to requests from many of our existing clients who were dissatisfied and frustrated by their current managing agents. Since then, we have been able to assist many local property owners and landlords with the development of flats, houses and new estates. Hunters Estate & Property Management department has grown organically to a position where we now look after over 120 developments across Sussex.
