Property Management Services

Home From Home works with a full range of clients: Property Developers & Builders, Residential Management Companies (RMC), Right To Manage (RTM) companies, Housing Associations and Retirement Housing.


For an RMC, Home From Home understands that changing managing agent can be a daunting prospect and, in the early stages, may throw up more questions than answers as the transfer process shines a light on unexpected maintenance issues or unearths financial liabilities of an historic nature. Home From Home is well versed in complex management transfers and has a proven record in securing the cash-flow of a development in the short-term while developing a healthy service charge balance going forward. We are used to grasping the nettle of a difficult structural problem as well as resolving long-standing technical issues. Home From Home can tailor a property management package to meet your requirements and can set up an agreement which will secure your cash flow during the early stages of the transfer process while putting in place the foundations of a secure financial future.
