In 2007, P G Ashton & Chater was formed as an amalgamation of Andrew Chater & Co Chartered Surveyors, and P G Ashton & Sons of Chadwell Heath. P G Ashton had originally been established in 1905, and large portions of the original portfolio are still managed by the company to the current day.
Our progressive growth in the property management sector during recent years has been achieved as a direct recognition of the need to take specific account of the wishes of the majority of the residents. After all, service charge funds are residentsí money, held on account to pay for the services and improvements considered appropriate for the betterment of each development.
However we do not purely concentrate on residential block management, and can offer leaseholders and clients an efficiently run and expanding residential lettings team. The lettings team currently has a portfolio of over 160 individual flats and houses, each managed in accordance with current statutory requirements in relation to gas safety, rental deposit protection, Energy Performance Certificates etc.
In addition to managing a substantial portfolio of mixed commercial and industrial investments (as well as ground rents and lock up garages), we specialise in Landlord and Tenant issues and regularly undertake valuations for leasehold enfranchisement/ residential lease extension purposes.
Following our rebrand to HML Ashton Chater, we have moved into larger premises in central Romford, a short walk from our previous offices, making us well positioned to oversee a growing portfolio in the local area.
