The first choice for new-build property management

Property Developers

New Build Property Management

Watson act as managing agents for a number of the UK’s most demanding developer clients, and as such we fully understand the impact that a managing agent’s service can have on new build property sales and the developers reputation.  Our service is designed to delight the future homeowner whilst augmenting the developers' commercial aspirations, by:

  • Mitigating sales resistance through the creation of considered and equitable service charge budgets, and detailed explanatory documentation.
  • Ensure that every estate management function is delivered to the highest possible standard, so that brand, image and reputation are protected and enhanced.
  • Fully allay estate management related customer concerns made to the developer, to allow complete concentration on core business.

We would be pleased to explain further in person how our services can specifically be of benefit to you; and we would be delighted to prepare a detailed management proposal for any upcoming developments, demonstrating our innovate and accomplished approach to property management.

Partnership Services:

Watson is delighted to work in partnership with developers and their specialist consultants on new build projects from design stage in order to ensure seamless future management.  we are always pleased to be involved in:

  • Design Efficiency - Consultancy to ensure the design of the development allows for the efficient delivery of management services and economical service charge payments.
  • Legal - Liaison with legal representatives to ensure the documentation under which the units are sold include all the required provisions for collection of funds and delivery of service, alongside equitable budget structure.
  • Sustainability - as experts in the management of green technology, we can assist in the selection of sustainable features that appeal to the buyer and meet planning requirements.
  • Sales Support - Liaison with sales staff to ensure buyers understand fully the value for money delivered through professional management.

Providing our extensive experience at an early stage is all part of the service, ensuring the new build sites under our care are managed flawlessly for many years to come.

  • We are also pleased to offer advice on ground rents and freehold disposal/acquisition.

There is little involved with the residential property management business that we haven’t dealt with over the years.  Market research supports our practical expertise in providing the right mix of services to developers and house-builders; by tailoring our proposition to meet the needs of each and every client, we’ve performed consistently against expectations and in most cases exceeded them.  Add to this a transparent fee structure and a newly-created suite of IT systems (facilitating access to information and enabling appropriate communications with all parties) and it is clear why property developers simply love Watson.

Comprehensive management and partnership services that augment the commercial aims of the developer and surpass customer expectations.
