Housing Associations

Throughout the UK many Housing Associations are realising the skills required to effectively manage retirement properties are considerably different from that of general market housing.  The Customers are different, have different needs and aspirations as well as expectations.  For these reasons several are looking at contracting out the management of their retirement properties to experienced retirement property management companies such as Freemont. 

 

Case Study

In the summer of 2017 Freemont were invited along with several other management companies to tender for the management of 35 retirement developments by Orbit Housing Association.

Orbit felt it was better to contract out the management of retirement properties as they could see that specialist skills are required. 

Freemont were successful at winning the hearts and minds of 28 of their retirement properties.   For both the Residents and the Housing Association this has been a worthwhile and well received change.

Since that time Freemont have been contacted by several other Housing Association to consider a similar course of action.

Testimonials from Shephard Mead

Shephard Mead – a Retirement development in Tewksbury of 61 apartments and bungalows This is one of the developments managed by Orbit Housing Association, who invited FPM to meet the residents in a competitive tender for the property management. After the presentation by FPM the residents preferred FPM to the other companies to manage the development. Residents were then sent a questionnaire to find out why they chose FPM, what they saw better in FPM and what the experience to date has been. Listed here are just some of the comments provided by the residents.

Why did you choose Freemont?

Excellent presentation and exhibited experience with Retirement Developments Company was nearer and had a good history.
At the presentation Freemont were much more approachable and friendly. Pat came over to our table to talk to us.
The literature was better. Staff seemed more determined and professional.
