A property manager plays a pivotal role in ensuring the smooth operation, maintenance and growth of various property types.

Whether it’s residential, commercial, or industrial, the expertise of a property manager is essential in optimising property value and creating harmonious living and working environments.

Let’s take a closer look at the role of a property manager and the different types of specialisms they can fall into.

Outlining the Property Manager Role

In general, property managers act as the bridge between property owners and tenants, handling the day-to-day management and oversight of individual properties, such as residential homes, commercial buildings, or office/retail spaces.

Their primary focus is on the maintenance, leasing, and financial aspects of the property and their responsibilities encompass a wide range of tasks, including: ground rent collection, rent reviews, service charge, and lease agreements and renewals.

As mentioned above, there are different property specialisms a manager can work within which means the role adjusts slightly to each area.

The Role of a Property Manager for Residential Block Management

This role typically refers to the management of residential blocks or complexes comprising multiple units. They oversee shared spaces within multi-unit developments  and are primarily concerned with the communal areas and shared facilities within the block or estate.

Residential block management responsibilities encompass ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, coordinating maintenance and repairs, managing insurance reinstatement valuations, and fostering positive relationships with residents.
