Property management is essentially looking after every aspect of a property, from managing the use and occupancy of a building, admin and legal compliance issues, and undertaking repairs and maintenance of the building itself.
Like letting agents, property management companies deal with the day-to-day upkeep of a property, but they can also offer expert consultancy services to increase the value, lifecycle, energy efficiency and return on investment on a property or property portfolio.
As well as houses, flats and other residential properties, specialist companies can also manage demanding sites such as manufacturing plants, heritage and listed buildings, and public spaces.
Why outsource your property management?
At Almeda, we see ourselves as your outsourced property directors. We support you in managing your property, leaving you to do what you do best.

We’re passionate about delivering high quality customer service. You’ll benefit from a single point of contact, be it a dedicated account manager or on-site maintenance specialist. We also have a 24/7 customer care team on hand to deal with any urgent property issues.
