Everyone at Premier Block Management (PBM) is extremely pleased that we have achieved accreditation from the Leasehold Knowledge Partnership.
LKP are going some way to redress the sometimes uneven balance between Landlords (Freeholders) and Tenants (Leaseholders) and rightly champion the legitimate rights of Leaseholders and best practice guidelines.
What LKP expect from a managing agent is exactly what PBM aims to deliver.
PBM strives to do things a little differently, we want flat ownership to be a pleasure and not a chore. Our business model is primarily aimed at communicating with our customers, unequivocal financial transparency (Leaseholders can visit the office to inspect the books with 24hr notice in most circumstances) and first class customer service. Essentially, we provide a service we would be happy to receive ourselves and are prepared to stand by that promise.
PBM’s customer portal allows Leaseholders web access to site reports and photos, budget vs. actual variance reports and access to your account details. We also send quarterly e-newsletters with updates about the site and other useful information.
We feel our vision for PBM runs parallel to that of LKP in that Managing Agents should be transparent in their operations and act in the best interests of the Leaseholders, administering their duty of care diligently with due care and attention given to the relevant legislation and current best practice guidelines.
We pride ourselves on our outstanding customer service. In 2019, we received the Feefo Gold Trusted Service Award, an independent seal of excellence that recognises businesses for delivering exceptional experiences, as rated by real customers.
See for yourself how we achieved an average service rating of 4.8 out 5.0:

Gary’s energy, enthusiasm and hands-on approach are the added qualities to a lifetime’s experience in residential property management. He founded PBM with a clear goal in mind; supporting clients to successfully navigate almost every type of property-related matter by creating a like-minded team at the beating heart of the business. Driving change, challenging
accepted practice and not accepting mediocrity is his basic industry benchmark. Everything else is a bonus.
Duncan’s entrepreneurial spirit knows no boundaries. Following the financial crisis he transformed the property sector by pioneering peer to peer bridging lending. He created a bespoke platform allowing private investors to fund bridging loans as an alternative to the shrinking opportunities
banks were offering. He also created the Bridging Index, an independent monitor of the bridging industry accepted by Wikipedia as the first of its kind. Duncan’s enthusiasm for leading change and promoting thought leadership brings a wealth of talent and influence to PBM’s senior team.
Chief Financial Officer

Sarabjeet’s experience and
influence are wide-reaching and his hands-on style is an invaluable asset in all areas of PBM’s financial operations.
Head of Client Services
A veteran in residential property management with over 7 years’ experience, there’s probably
no block issue Shushanik hasn’t seen and dealt with. Her brief at PBM is crystal clear; to support our freeholders, resident associations, resident management and right to manage companies. It’s a responsibility she embraces with open arms. Through proactive action and the benefits of clear
communication, she ensures challenges are met seamlessly and dealt with through teamwork and a spirit of co-operation.
And case studies here:
Every block we manage is different, but we apply the same diligent approach whatever the size or shape. The job in hand is always about creating happy homes, cared for spaces and better value for residents and flat owners alike. Why not grab a cuppa and have a little read of these case studies?
