Principle Estate Management has appointed experienced chartered surveyor and leasehold expert Samuel Boot as a consultant.
Mr Boot will specialise in valuations and negotiations on leasehold flats and houses for the Birmingham-based practice, which manages contracts nationwide.
After graduating from Birmingham City University in 2008 and qualifying as a chartered surveyor in 2010, Mr Boot worked in the property industry for Pennycuick Collins until 2017, first as a graduate surveyor, then associate partner and later partner.
He has always practised in valuation and lease consultancy matters on residential and commercial properties, with a specialism in leasehold enfranchisement, including freehold acquisitions, disposals, lease extension valuations and negotiations, applying all the latest legislation.
Mr Boot said: “Principle is a very professional firm of managing agents with a growing client base and an excellent reputation.
“I am delighted to have been approached by them to act as a consultant so that they can provide an additional service to their clients. We already have quite a few cases ongoing and I am sure this will continue to expand.”
Brett Williams, managing director of Principle, said: “Principle is a rounded firm of chartered surveyors with a focus on property management.
“As a result we have a number of clients who need specialist advice on leasehold reform matters from time to time.
“This is now a very specialist area of work and we’re pleased to have Samuel acting as a consultant to our firm so that we can support these clients in-house.”
Principle Estate Management was launched in April 2018 by Mr Williams, the former head of residential property management at CPBigwood.
The company, based at Cornwall House in Lionel Street, Birmingham, offers a national property management service, predominantly to modern residential apartment buildings and traditional blocks of flats.
