JCF Property Management is a specialist provider of a bespoke, highly individual property management services for blocks of flats and properties in London. Our experienced team take great personal care of every property they look after and of the residents within them. If your property is in the South West London or Central London area, contact us now.

 

Properties Large and Small


Whether your property or block contains several flats or several hundred, we work with each of our clients to perfect a tailored service to suit their individual needs. It is something we have been doing successfully since we started in 1980. Our business has continually expanded and we have gained considerable experience and knowledge over the years.

We have a detailed understanding of the complex laws that can affect property owners and as a firm of Chartered Surveyors, we have the additional benefit of understanding the technical issues involved in building construction and property maintenance.

 

Making Things Simple


As many Residents’ Associations and Committees have found, the extent of legislation and the weight of legal obligations, some of which can create criminal liability on owners and those responsible for the buildings, make the management of properties a highly onerous task. Considerable knowledge and experience is required to undertake effective building management. At JCF we can relieve you of that burden, assist you with day-to-day management matters and protect your interests.

We use the leading industry property management software to ensure accurate accounting and financial transparency and to facilitate leaseholders direct access to information about their block.

Your Local Property Managers


We believe well-made buildings are maintained better through well-made relationships, which is why we always return calls or emails within 24-hours. Understanding that nothing beats face-to-face communication, we carry out monthly site visits and the option to host drop-in clinics at our properties to ensure we’re always available to talk in person. We have an open-door policy and welcome you to come and visit us and our team at our offices.

Some of the qualities our property managers have been described as having include:

  • Attentive and flexible to the client’s needs
  • Experienced, intelligent and committed
  • Quick to respond to issues and take action
  • Personable, friendly and approachable
  • Dedicated to taking the time to understand your building

 

Professional Accounting Services


Careful financial management of your estate is crucial to ensure that all repairs, insurances, planned improvements and major works can be funded and carried out. Our qualified accountants work to ensure your property manager and you have access to accurate and clear information to inform timely decisions. We can supply financial reports on a regular basis, enabling you to monitor the financial performance of your development.

In addition, our accounts team ensure that service charge, ground rent and insurance demands are sent promptly to all leaseholders and that proactive credit control procedures are in place to avoid any cash flow problems throughout the year. We offer various payment methods including monthly instalments (where permitted by the lease) and credit/debit card payments, ensuring residents can settle their accounts easily.

Through careful liaison with our clients, we can establish and maintain an appropriate reserve fund for all developments (if required), providing a buffer for any major or planned repairs that come along; this provision also enhances the value of each block/unit. All developments have a clearly defined separate trust bank account, to offer complete security, as required by our Regulators.

 

Working To Higher Standards


Our business is a member of, and is regulated by, a wider range of industry bodies than many other block management companies choose to be. This helps to give our clients peace of mind that we meet and exceed the high levels of business practices required by the leading associations in our industry.

We are proud members of the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA) which promotes high standards of leasehold management by providing advice, training and guidance to its member firms.

Our business and our staff of Chartered Surveyors are regulated by The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). RICS is an independent organisation founded over 140 years ago and is today recognised throughout the world as the leader in setting standards in the property industry. Additionally, JCF is a member of the RICS Client Money Protection Scheme which gives our customers up to £20m annual cover.

We are also regulated by the Codes of Conduct of the Association of Residential Letting Agents and the Property Ombudsman.

If you’re seeking a property management company you can trust, our credentials and past performance speak for themselves.

Every time we have had an issue in the house, the response has been quick and effective. Whenever they had to get someone in the house (which happened rarely), they always informed us well in advance.

Frequently Asked Questions

We have a highly qualified team compared to many in our industry. Our Property Managers are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Institute of Residential Property Management (IRPM) and Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA).

Yes, each of the buildings we manage has a named Property Manager who is dedicated to you and fully supported by their wider team at our offices.

Absolutely, you can. You can e-mail, mail, call your Property Manager’s landline or mobile or alternatively the main switchboard. Also, our office always welcomes you to pop in to say hello!

Yes, if required or requested, the report can detail the finances and a range of management subjects currently being addressed or recently completed by using our action tracker.

Yes, we are the experts in seeking the best solution for our clients for all types of specialist contracts.

Yes, through the use of our specialist property software package.

It is better to have a block policy that covers every flat because if the responsibility was placed on individual flat owners to insure their own property and one flat was uninsured, this would create problems for the adjoining properties. It would also become confusing and cumbersome settling an insurance claim where there are a number of insurers involved.

In many cases, yes. All leaseholders have rights concerning the management of their property. If the Managing Agents are appointed by the freeholder the latter should take into account your views concerning the choice of agents. We can advise you in this regard if required. If the agent is appointed by the Management Company there is usually the opportunity for leaseholders to make their views known to Directors of the Management Company either informally or at the Annual General Meeting.

As you might expect, our team reflects the diversity of London, so our staff members can speak a range of languages in addition to English, including Hungarian, Polish, Russian and Romanian.
