“Tom has been known to me for the last 8 years or so managing our block of 60 flats with his former firm. I am the Chairman of the Board and Tom and I have always worked very closely together he has always been available and responsive when I or my fellow Directors or Leaseholders need any assistance. My Board members and I run the development as proactively as possible and Tom is very good at producing budgets to forecast future expenditure and analysis of ongoing costs. Tom has extensive knowledge of our building and about the legislation and regulations that we as a Board need to adhere to run our building well. When dealing with issues, Tom has many contacts in Brighton & Hove and further afield that he can call on to provide the advice and services that we may require. When I heard that Tom was setting up his own firm through SDL Management, my Board members and I were keen to retain his services as we have always been very satisfied with the service that he provides. For me, the main things that I look for in a good managing agent is professionalism, integrity and expertise however to be a good property manager you also need to be approachable and able to deal effectively with all sorts of people and situations. I have found that Tom fulfils all of these things and I would highly recommended SDL Property Management Tom Lean Ltd as an outstanding Managing Agent”
