A specialist property management company in Bristol has launched a new division as part of its expansion within the South West.
BNS Property Management, which looks after apartment blocks, flats, housing estates and large properties converted for multiple occupation, has launched a new service, BNS Retirement Living.
The new branch will manage property requirements for retirement homes and sheltered retirement communities across the region, maintaining communal areas and providing a 24/7 call out service for any issues.
BNS managing director Andrew Simmonds said: “As a business we have been slowly expanding in the South West and part of this expansion is the move into retirement living.
“This is a really exciting area for us as we’ve gained a reputation in the region for being fast to react and very reliable which is going to be important with our retirement clients.
“We’re really looking forward to getting stuck in and making sure we create a nice environment for the residents who live there. We will be responsible for the upkeep of all communal areas including lounge and dining areas as well as the outdoor spaces. The portfolio will be managed by a team of specialist property managers.
“BNS is very big on community involvement and retirement complexes are little communities of their own. It has been known for management companies to exploit those living in housing structures like this, charging over the odds for services and not completing jobs to a high enough standard. We will ensure the service we provide is affordable, transparent and ethical.”
BNS Property Management is based in Downend and looks after over 230 blocks in the South West. Run by brothers Andrew and Ian Simmonds it has established itself as one of the region’s leading property managing agents offering different levels of service for both large and small properties.
Andrew continued: “In recent years we have been focussing on growing our team and finding the best property managers and maintenance staff in the region while building strong connections with trusted contractors and suppliers.
“We recently rebranded and we have now spread our reach from the Greater Bristol area to Bath, Gloucestershire, North Somerset, Taunton, Yeovil, Cardiff and even Uxbridge and Newbury.
“The latest development is the addition of our retirement division and we’ve got some more exciting news about new services coming next year.”
