Longstanding contacts appoint Principle to look after Midlands properties

Established contacts from more than 25 years ago have asked Principle Estate Management to look after their mixed shops and flats property development in North Worcestershire.


Leonard Carver and Son, a family firm, first worked with Brett Williams, managing director of Principle, back in the 1990s, when he dealt with both transactional and management matters at their properties.


Now James Carver – a chartered surveyor and third generation property professional in the family firm – has appointed Principle to manage 12 units at Windermere Court in Stourport-on-Severn, and to collect ground rent only for another 17 units at Fredericks Close in Stourbridge.


Brett Williams of Principle said: “I’m delighted to be working alongside Leonard Carver and Son again and we’re looking forward to making a real difference on these properties.


“We have already identified that Windermere Court needs a long-term maintenance plan in order to prioritise works and we will be arranging this shortly so that we can agree a plan with the individual owners.”


Mr Carver said: “I have known Brett for a long time, working with him when I qualified as a Chartered Surveyor, while my father has known and worked with him since the 1990s.


“The family used to manage these properties in Stourport and Stourbridge ourselves when my father was running his father’s company, Leonard Carver and Co., which later changed into Leonard Carver and Son.


“We wanted Brett’s firm to look after them as we know he is a well-respected chartered surveyor and former chairman of ARMA (the Association of Residential Managing Agents).”


Principle Estate Management was launched earlier this year by Mr Williams, the former head of residential property management at CPBigwood in Birmingham and an experienced chartered surveyor.


The company is based at Cornwall House in Lionel Street, Birmingham, and offers a national property management service
