Dauntons Soar Management Ltd, our sister company, deal with block management: this means they manage entire buildings that are divided into flats. Although a separate entity, DSML are based at the same address, on the top two floors of 8 Denbigh Street and there is naturally a close connection between the two firms.

DSML manage building repairs, collect service charges and ground rents, resolve disputes and, more usually, attend to building emergencies. They act on behalf of institutional investors, right-to-manage companies and freeholders.

DSML are members of ARMA, (Association of Residential Managing Agents) and RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors). Both professional bodies audit the company and ensure that they act to a professional standard at all times.

As managing agents, DSML’s duties are varied and no day is the same. Today, they could be dealing with a lift that is not working or a light bulb that is out in a communal hallway but tomorrow it could be a leak which has gone through 3 flats or a front door lock that requires changing and the new keys distributed to all the flat owners. All-in-all property management encompasses a large degree of psychology and an even larger variety of duties which DSML, of course, fulfil to the best of their abilities and always with a smile!

If you are an institutional investor, a right-to-manage Company or a Freehold Owner and would like further information – or perhaps you are a lessee and would like to contact them – please email: [email protected]

In addition, DSML are able to provide professional assistance across the full spectrum of residential property disciplines – from lease extensions and enfranchisement to party wall awards, valuations and structural surveys.
