There are 4.3 million leasehold properties in the UK, 69 per cent of these are flats and more than half of all flats are leasehold.
All leasehold properties need day-to-day management and the number of block managers and property businesses getting involved in the market is growing.
It means it’s an exciting time for block management. Property experts are taking on the rewarding challenge it presents and there are a great number, like ourselves, that are looking to drive up the quality of service for residents.
We’re seeing this growth in the industry in our franchise block management network – which continues to extend across the UK!
This month we have welcomed four new businesses to the network. Each has vast experience working in the property market – making them the perfect companion for SDL Property Partners.
So who are our four new partners? Get to know them a little better here;
Ainsworth Lord Estates
First up is a name you’ll probably recognise. Ainsworth Lord Estates is the first member of our network in the northwest and the Lancashire-based family run estate agency regularly features as a property industry standards expert on the Channel 5 documentary ‘Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords’.
Paul and Deborah often appear on the show and provide their expert advice on the more challenging aspects of the property industry. The team at Ainsworth Lord Estates are based in Darwen and cover the East Lancashire area, including Blackburn.

We’re excited that the team is taking advantage of our expertise, training and back office support so they can focus on the service they provide to residents.

Based in Newport, he will trade as SDL Property Management Peter Morgan and we’re really looking forward to supporting the his work to provide residents with a place they love to call home.
