Looking for a new managing agent

So what makes ELM different from other leasehold property management companies?

From our origins in the retirement housing sector, we’ve grown to become one of the South of England’s most respected leasehold management companies, working with major developers, housing associations and private landlords. As well as over 50 years’ experience, you can benefit from our specialist leasehold management systems, which enable us to be completely transparent and accountable to you – and you to be as hands on as you wish.

  • Our developments are all different sizes, in varied locations, and home to all kinds of people, retired and non-retired. We help to create real communities.
  • Our partners include individual leaseholders, private landlords, developers, house-builders and Housing Associations. Our expertise extends right across the leasehold property market.
  • We don’t believe that one size fits all. We tailor our services to suit your requirements, and agree a fee structure based on your circumstances.
  • We offer everything from full management to Section 20 Consultation – or simply collecting service charges. Whatever you need to manage your property effectively, we can help.
  • We are absolutely upfront about our management fees.
  • We are absolutely against commission, and always refuse any we’re offered.
  • Our people are the best in the business. We invest heavily in training and development, including practical experience across all sectors of the market, so they really know their stuff.
  • We’re friendly and easy to deal with. Lots of companies say it: we demonstrate it, in everything we do.

We’re members of the ARHM (Association of Retirement Housing Managers) while RLHA holds full membership with ARMA (Association of Residential Managing Agents), so you can be sure your leasehold properties – and your residents – are in the best possible hands.
