Leasehold Knowledge Partnership, the leaseholders charity, are pleased to announce the accreditation of Adam Church Ltd, the Bristol-based block managers who declare that “one of our biggest joys is seeing unethical freeholders and their expensive agents get the boot”.
ADAM CHURCH being a positive, forward-thinking managing agent that seriously cares about leaseholders, residents and the buildings, aligns perfectly with LKP’s vision of transparency, accountability and professionalism in a free and competitive market where the paying flat owners are in the driving seat and choose the service provider.
Adam Church, the Best Leasehold Management Business in Bristol and the Southwest in the Southern Enterprise Awards, joins the only pro-leaseholder managing agent accreditation scheme operating across England and Wales, as demand for ethical providers surges in an environment where the media is awash with stories of leasehold cheating and eagerly-awaited reforms that promise fairer flat living inch closer to the statute books.
Established for over a decade, Adam Church is enjoying a new phase of growth, with its no win, no fee Right to Manage service, and a special self-management service that takes care of the financial aspects of block management for self-managed blocks, at an easily affordable price.
Adam Church’s tie-up with LKP comes as the campaigning charity expands and refreshes its accreditation scheme in anticipation of thousands of leaseholders taking back control of their homes, and a shift to commonhold on new builds – a scenario that will become reality should the Law Commission’s reform package enter law next year, as is anticipated.
LKP seeks to celebrate more ethical service providers and further raise standards in an industry that, despite its best efforts, remains completely unregulated and dominated by a few big players who rely on business from developers and freehold investors. Unfortunately, as it stands, many of the household name managing agents have no incentive to satisfy those picking up the tab: the leaseholders, who are not the client and don’t get to seal the deal. Adam Church is here helping make the change, with services that ensure leaseholder collaboration.
The campaigning charity hopes to leverage Adam Church’s energy and conviction to do right by leaseholders and commonholders to improve a market ripe for disruption and grow the accreditation scheme so it can keep doing what it does best: produce hard-hitting journalism on the housing crisis, expose wrongdoing, urge sensible reform and help with individual cases.
Adam Church, owner and director of Adam Church Ltd, says:
“Our desire to service leaseholders ethically with transparency and openness means accreditation with Leasehold Knowledge Partnership is a perfect fit for us.
“We prioritise clear consultation, up front honesty about fees and reassurance that we’re always working in our clients’ best interests and we strive to make sure all our services are delivered in a way that makes life easier for UK leaseholders.
“We’re thrilled to become an LKP accredited agent and we’re excited to collaborate with Harry and the team to fight for better leasehold management.”
