Parker Torrington Limited provides a personal localised Managing Agent service to Residential Flat Owners.
Where a management company exists we are able to support the owners in the running of their block in providing a Managing Agent and Company Secretary service.
Flat owners have become empowered to control the management of their development by virtue of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002. This gives an opportunity for Leaseholders to review the management of their property and consider alternatives. Parker Torrington Limited will ensure that any transfer between management companies is carried out as expediently as possible for the benefit of the Leaseholders and their Management Company.
Parker Torrington Limited is a local firm of Chartered Surveyors with considerable experience in flat management, our friendly, helpful and responsive staff can really make the difference.
