“EKA have gone from strength to strength, with their experience and expertise shining through in some of the most challenging refurbishment projects our clients have undertaken. One such example is a window replacement project in the heart of Belgravia, where their surveying team - and I mean team - confidently and competently managed the expectations of the headlease board of directors, the freeholder, the local council, the contractor, the client's own property expert...Of course, any good firm of surveyors has an excellent managing agent also managing expectations, keeping all parties communicating effectively throughout what was a project a year in the preparation and a few months on site. The finished project is immaculate and has undoubtedly added significant value to the already much sought-after apartments.

“Earl Kendrick Associates advised us during the purchase of a leasehold ground floor property in Streatham Hill. The service was excellent, fast, and reliable. The survey was of very high quality and provided us with the necessary assurance as the property was in need of significant modernisation. We highly recommend Julian, Ed, the rest of the team at Earl Kendrick Associates and look forward to working with them again in the future.”
“Earl Kendrick Associates project managed major external renovations to a block of Edwardian mansion flats earlier this year. Julian Davies co ordinated weekly site meetings, communicating well with the building company and residents. Weekly inspections ensured a high standard of workmanship. He produced detailed weekly site reports. He and his team responded swiftly to emails and phone calls. We would recommend Earl Kendrick Associates and would be happy to employ their services in the future.”

This is particularly essential when we are planning the maintenance strategy for large, residential blocks. The depth of their surveys and comprehensive cost assessments enable us to assess our liabilities and help us to plan the timings and budget for major works.”

“EKA have worked for some time dealing with our Licence to Alter applications and helping us to develop an effective in house process. We spend a morning each month running through the various Licence projects progress together. Every fortnight they send me a progress tracker in a format of my choice. In short, I could not ask for a more helpful or efficient approach.”

“The major external maintenance project carried out at The Bromptons this year had the potential to be disruptive and have a significant impact on the residents. Through the comprehensive specification, the advice on planning/phasing of the works and management of the works on site, EKA have assisted in ensuring that the project has been completed to a high standard and completed three days earlier than the 30 week contract programme.”

As a firm of block managing agents, Blenheims has known and worked with the Director of EKA, Julian Davies for nearly 10 years. We have always found that EKA provides a very professional service based on sound technical advice, experienced Surveyors and good communication. We have also found the additional technical information they provide and the lengths they go to in providing their service to be excellent. Blenheims has worked with EKA on several major works projects and countless licence to alters and we have found the approach and management to be very thorough, professional and communication to be regular and detailed.

“The detailed survey provided by Earl Kendrick before buying a leasehold flat in a listed building was an excellent investment. The survey showed that the building had been poorly maintained for many years and urgently needed maintenance work. Earl Kendrick ensured we understood all aspects of the lease and the associated risks.”
“Our company was introduced to Earl Kendrick Associates a couple of years ago and since then we have instructed them on behalf of a number of clients to deal with various major works projects, as well as drawing up planned maintenance programmes for the blocks when required. I find the team to be very professional and accommodating, meeting the needs when required often within the confines of limited budgets.
