What they say about themselves:
Established in 1979, we have been providing building surveying and property management services to a variety of property owners throughout London and the South East of England for over 30 years. Our team offers the most up-to-date service in-line with the current codes of practice. Our experience and knowledge helps us to provide effective property management and building surveying solutions to property owners, landlords, Residential Management Companies and lessees.
Our clients are assured they will receive:
- first rate advice delivered by competent professionals who act with integrity
- a bespoke trusted service that has been successful for over 30 years
- quality assurance as approved by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the Association of Residential Managing Agents
- value for money with our competitive rates.
Unlike many Managing Agents, we also specialise in the provision of building surveying services, meaning invaluable advice about your property will always be just a phone call away.
Our facilities allow us to manage estates and properties large and small, including those of multi-occupancy and shared ownership.
We understand that the property management industry is a crowded marketplace, and when it comes to deciding who to use at your property, making a decision can be difficult and time-consuming.
We are members of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA) meaning we adhere to the most rigorous regulations in the industry including the Service Charge Management Code of Practice (as published by RICS).
All too often the most fundamental requirements of a Managing Agent are not met, including transparent accounting, clear cut communication and swift response to maintenance faults. We know that it is time for that to change.
As advocates of quality service, we always ensure our client is kept in the picture; you always know what it will cost and when it will be completed.
Every block within our management is given a dedicated current and reserve bank account and regular management accounts reports are provided at the requested intervals, typically on a quarterly or monthly basis allowing you to keep a tight grasp on the current financial position.
Our 30+ years of experience in the field has lead to a wealth of knowledge that we welcome our clients tap into, all part of the service. Countless new clients tell us how poorly their previous Agent communicated costs to them or lost control of costs altogether! This drives us to be different and our references speak for themselves.

What others say about them:
“AM Surveying & Block Management has proved to be the best management company we have encountered. Matters are always dealt with promptly and efficiently without the posturing and enmity often a feature of less professional services operating in London.”
John Cowell Freehold Director & Leaseholder, London
“I would just like to say that AM Surveying & Block Management’s service is 100 percent. In the time you have been looking after our property we have had a number of issues with fencing, gardening, electrics etc., AM Surveying has dealt with these promptly and efficiently providing us with a good service, very approachable and friendly. If it has been necessary to send emails regarding any problems we have replies come back to us immediately. If asked if I knew of a good management company I would recommend AM Surveying.”
Bridget Veale RTM Director, Coulsdon
"Having been less than satisfied with our previous agent, we undertook a due diligence process to locate a replacement that could balance the necessary service provision against sensible and affordable costs. Our review determined that AM Surveying & Block Management was the best fit to our needs, and since transferring management to them in 2012 we have been satisfied with the results; they have suggested a number of changes aimed at maintaining or improving services whilst reducing overall costs to our members."
