Mixed Use Investments
Kirkby Diamond has a wealth of experience in dealing with the management of mixed use schemes.
Where there are commercial tenants working amongst residential tenants, they will each have their own specific requirement for services. There are very specific property laws on recovery of service charges for major repair works from the residential tenants at such schemes and formal notices must be served in the correct order and timescale in order for landlords to fully recover the cost of such work from their tenants.
Kirkby Diamond is committed to building strong relationships and always focuses on the clients’ best interests in respect of their property needs by insisting on implementing high standards from all our staff.
Kirkby Diamond strive to be the first choice for clients seeking property solutions and in giving leadership and career opportunities, we aim to reward and retain quality staff and also attract new talent.
Whether you are a commercial property owner or a fund manager, Kirkby Diamond are able to assist with your property by maximising its capital value through experienced asset management, whilst managing its liabilities and costs through effective property management.
