Melvin Koh – Manager, Malaysia office

Our overseas landlords, many of whom are based in South East Asia, find it invaluable to have a local branch (we have offices in Hong Kong, Singapore and India as well as Malaysia) where they can contact experienced staff easily, chat to them in their own language and discuss the management of their London investment properties. But working across so many time zones is a feat of organisation by our staff on both sides of the world.  So how does Melvin Koh, manager of our Malaysia branch, make property management across the miles work so seamlessly?

Tony Blair and Roy Hodgson once occupied two of the most pressurised jobs in Britain, and now they are re-emerging into the public gaze.

What’s on in London – March 2017

London rapper Skepta stormed last month’s BRITS pop awards and in the space of five minutes, consigned half of the nation’s music talent to the ‘Heritage’ category. This is not necessarily a bad thing as being a heritage commodity is insurance from some of the wackier forms of marketing. London handles these shifting notions superbly. From nineties architecture, to the promotion of traditional beer production as something hip and desirable, the Capital is always looking for a fresh angle. By the way, should Skepta be worried that he got a standing ovation from Simon Cowell? Continue reading

Top 5 tips to attract corporate tenants

Corporate tenants are generally regarded as the best tenants and are in our experience, the most popular type that are preferred by our landlords. It’s not just because they often provide the security of uninterrupted rents but mainly because they do tend to have more generous budgets; eat out a lot and generally work longer hours. For many landlords, renting their property out is a business and the cost of keeping a property bang up to date can be expensive so the idea of having a tenant who just uses the place as a bed for the night, is actually quite appealing.
