Commercial Property Manangement
Our Commercial Property Managers work in partnership with landlords, tenants and any management teams, ensuring the smooth running of each property. Our focus is on easing the challenges facing commercial landlords, such as attracting and retaining tenants, by providing a high level of service to tenants, overseeing the maintenance of each property, ensuring compliance with all legislation and the timely administration of rents and service charges.
Your investment value is enhanced by a well-run property portfolio including a secure rental flow and by continuing to invest in the properties with an asset management plan or planned maintenance schedule. Vickery Holman has inhouse Building Surveyors whom we work closely with to ensure efficient and prompt action should a survey be required.
We have been working with tenants and landlords to provide a personal service based on professionalism and attention to detail for over 30 years. We look after estates, offices, industrial units, retail and leisure outlets right across the South West and our Property Managers are based from Cornwall to Bristol.
Our comprehensive range of commercial property management services includes:
Rent and Ground Rent Collection
Vickery Holman can invoice and collect all rents due and then account to you on an agreed basis. Additional statements are issued if there are payments received in the interim, but our stringent credit control procedures ensure that rents are collected and paid to our clients in a timely manner.
Service Charge Administration
Vickery Holman can set up and administer service charge schemes, including full budgeting, in advance. At year end, a full reconciliation is provided and statements issued, along with any balancing charges. Contracts are tendered regularly to ensure we achieve value for money wherever possible.
Health and Safety Compliance
Vickery Holman will review all relevant areas such as asbestos, the Equality Act 2010, Gas Safety, periodic electrical testing, fire and water risk assessments and lift compliance. We will ensure that landlords comply with all relevant legislation where possible and as permitted under the terms of any lease.
Reactive repairs and Maintenance
Vickery Holman routinely deal with all day-to-day maintenance items and repairs. However, larger projects requiring technical input can be referred to one of our in house building surveyors. Such projects are usually specified and overseen under a separate fee basis.
Landlord and Tenant Liaison
Vickery Holman take a proactive role in all landlord and tenant issues and are the first point of contact for any queries or requests for information a tenant may have. We will also notify you, in a timely manner, when rent reviews and lease renewals are due. Our in house lease consultancy team can deal with this for you under a separate agreement.
If an asset management plan is not already in place, our building surveying department can prepare one. We recommend that plans are reviewed every two years and updated as necessary. Having regard to an asset management plan, we can advise you on setting up an appropriate reserve fund in order to collect funds towards future items of major expenditure.
Senate Court – Exeter
Vickery Holman provides property management services on behalf of Exeter City Council, owners of this A Grade office building in the heart of Exeter.
The Dartmouth Trust, Dartmouth
The Dartmouth Trust has been working with Vickery Holman to manage their portfolio of mixed use properties since 2011. Starting with one property, we have gradually taken on the full portfolio, supporting our client with full property management, including drawing in our colleagues across Vickery Holman including Agency, Lease Advisory and Building Surveying as required.
The Dartmouth Trust is a long-established local charity whose work has a significant impact on the fabric of Dartmouth life. The Trust’s purpose is to manage a portfolio of investments and share the income generated amongst its three beneficiaries. We’re delighted to be able to help the Trust by keeping their properties well maintained and looked after.
