Block & Estate Management

Alba Management Services specialise in Block & Estate Management for Residents Management Companies, Right To Manage Companies, Freeholders and Property Developers.  Alba Management has been providing this service since 2009 and manage more than 120 developments. These developments are all different sizes with the smallest comprising just two properties, so we really can manage properties of any size.

We have a strong team, led by Managing Director, Tom Dawson (Member Institute of Residential Property Management & Associate Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors).

The blocks of flats and estates of freehold houses we manage are primarily located within a fifteen mile radius of Marlow, and we have a particularly strong presence in Maidenhead, High Wycombe, Slough, Beaconsfield and Gerrards Cross.  By working in our local area we can respond effectively and promptly to problems either by sending one of our Property Managers or one of our panel of reliable, local contractors.

We provide a dedicated Property Manager to each development which ensures effective communication and a strong working relationship between the client and Alba Management Services.  Clients can be confident that the person they are talking to knows the property and will understand queries and concerns without the need for repeated explanations.  Our team work hard to respond to enquiries promptly and efficiently.

• Quarterly property inspections with electronic reports sent to client afterwards.
