Walking A Tightrope

Friday March 1, 2019

As a residential block management specialist, I am often put in mind of my famous great grand uncle Rea il Magnifico. My uncle was a tightrope walker in northern Italy during the 1920’s. He wowed audiences with his amazing dexterity. As a block manager I feel I am preserving a family tradition. Walking a tightrope. […]

Keeping Housing Right

Friday February 1, 2019

Having spent most of 2018 railing against ill thought out legislation hitting the property rental sector, I was pleasantly surprised to find a Labour MP in a Westminster constituency had done something good for the rights of tenants. My surprise turned to delight when I discovered one of our Barristers, Justin Bates had drafted the […]

Introducing our clients...

I wish to thank you for all the hard work you have been putting in with regards to the management of our block. Living here myself, I have found everything running vastly better. I have received warm and appreciative comments from my neighbours also, congratulating the promptness and professionalism with which you have addressed their issues.

Dr J Jones – Resident Leaseholder

Quite possibly the best decision we made was to involve HPBM in the early stages of our development. The knowledge they have has been invaluable in getting our new block up and running smoothly whilst ensuring the leaseholders are happy with how things are run.

Mr P Smithson – Developer & Freeholder

I think I speak for the large majority of property owners when I say HPBM’s solutions made perfect sense. They put the needs of our tenants and us, as property owners at the forefront of their proposals.
