A law firm for clients with high expectations

Managing agents

We believe that we understand the property management sector and how managing agents look to drive their businesses forward. We appreciate that managing agents are always looking for innovative ways of working with their resident management company (RMC), freeholder and developer clients as well as their contractors and suppliers to continue to enhance their professional reputations and relationships, and, of course, profitability at a time when many areas of management values are being squeezed.

We work in partnership with all our managing agents nationally and see ourselves as an extension of their management businesses. We provide impressive service levels, expertise and commitment to ensuring we act at all times in the interests of agents – we know that doing so will help develop longlasting relationships built on trust. We know you need the right support from all contractors, including your preferred legal advisors as this directly enhances your relationships with your clients which are key to the success of your management business.

We understand also that your business is going through many changes with more and more regulation. Leaseholders are now very much aware of the all encompassing role property managers face and how a managing agent has to seek to give value for money whilst also ensure it has a viable management business. There has probably never been a more important time to make sure you choose the right legal expertise to support your business.

SLC are two time winners of the Professional Services Firm of the Year at the National Property Management Awards primarily in recognition by our clients of our sector-leading debt recovery service relating to the recovery of service charge arrears and ground rents. Such recognition was awarded to us in particular because we always seek to make the property management lives of agents and managers easier as well as enabling the living environment of leaseholders to be well maintained and well managed.

Whilst much of our core business has related to the recovery of arrears of service charges and ground rents we also provide ancillary services on a practical and legal basis over a whole cross-section of leasehold, landlord and tenant and management issues such as nuisance, leasehold enfranchisement, right to manage incorporations, lease extensions and variations, licences for alterations and sub-letting.

SLC’s all encompassing support also includes visiting our clients offices to carry out free of charge seminars which include topics such as credit control and litigation as well as offering surgeries to review difficult and awkward matters in progress with you.
