Residents at a smart apartment block in a much sought-after modern village near Solihull have appointed Principle Estate Management to look after their homes.
The contract to manage the Mereways was awarded by the residents’ management company and is Principle’s first contract in Dickens Heath.
Principle is now concluding arrangements for the full handover of the property, and once this is completed it will assess the financial position and put forward a 100-day management plan to be actioned.
Joe Jobson, a director at Principle, said: “We’re delighted to be taking over the management of these luxury apartments in the prime location of Dickens Heath.
“We’ve formed good working relationships with all parties and our organised structure means we can quickly get properties brought up to scratch.
“We’ll be working closely with the residents to ensure that everyone’s views and all outstanding issues are included. We will then be undertaking a full budget review and a long-term maintenance plan.”
Mr Jobson added: “It’s always worth investing time in the site in the early days to show clients and customers that we are proactive and prepared to do all that is required.”
A spokesman for The Coppice 6 Dickens Heath Management Company said: “We wanted a new managing agent to work closely with us and get items like planned maintenance done quickly and efficiently.
“We feel confident that Principle can provide that service and we are looking forward to working closely with them in the future.”
Principle Estate Management was launched in 2018 by Brett Williams, the former head of residential property management at CPBigwood in Birmingham, and a past-chairman of ARMA.
Now in its third year, Principle has tripled in size in the last 12 months, with the number of units it manages rising from just under 2,000 to more than 6,000 across all nine English regions including London, plus more in Wales.
The company is based at Newhall Street in Birmingham and offers a national property management service.
