Our aim is to take the stress out of freehold ownership and provide a comprehensive service to maintain and improve the standard of your development. This means managing the development objectively and honestly, for the good of all parties, i.e. the freeholder and the lessees. We find that all too often landlords and lessess are at loggerheads. Therefore, our approach is to improve communication, set objectives and abide by the terms of the lease and current legislation. We want a win-win situation for freeholders and lessees.

We have a dedicated team ready to take over the management of each development. This team consists of a Director of Ian Gibbs Estate Management, a property manager, an assistant and accounts executive working to ensure the smooth transition to management by Ian Gibbs estate Management. We ensure that the financial processes contained within the lease or transfer document are properly adhered to. We take on responsibility for monitoring and reporting on all aspects of service charge income and expenditure for each development under our management. We engage independent auditors to work with our accounts executive to produce the accounts for the development in a timely fashion.
