WHAT WE DO

As Chartered Surveyors our core objective is to achieve excellence in property management and associated services. We have built a reputation for taking problematic management instructions and turning them into valuable assets within a short period of time.

ASSET MANAGEMENT

Day and Bell regard every property as an opportunity. We aim to realise the optimum value and return by focussing on asset management strategy and performance. Our methods address potential alternative use, development, investment, lease negotiations or acquisition & disposal. While unlocking any latent value, we also concentrate on the fundamentals of rent administration, service charges and facilities management.

We also commit that clients can always receive prompt and specialist advice from a senior member of our team. This builds long term relationships and focussed expertise.
