Property Management Services

Our property law and corporate law team have a wealth of experience working with both developers and residents, from handover to creation of new property companies.

The set up of a property management company is often associated with new build property, where you need a group or entity to be responsible for the repair and maintenance of the common areas.

Property companies may come already set up by a developer and need handing over to residents, or they may need to be set up as a company first. We can help guide you on what stage you are at and what you will need to do.

What services can we help you with?
Once the management company has been handed over we can act as registered office and can also transfer shares when a property is subsequently bought or sold.

  • Formation of a Company (Our corporate governance team will be able to help form your property management company.)
  • Creation of the management company’s statutory books
  • Handover of the management company from the developers to the homeowners
  • appointing new directors
  • acting as registered office
  • answering replies to enquiries from a new purchaser looking to buy a property connected to the management company
  • transferring shares in the management company when a property is bought or sold.

Handover of a property management company
On sale of the last property in the development, property developers can instruct Herrington Carmichael to ‘handover’ the management company to the property owners as the developer should not have a say in the running of the management company once all properties have been sold, we act in the interests of the management company going forward.
