You should be able to call on us as a trusted partner as a given. See what our clients think:

“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. ”

Jonathan Channing, AssocRICS FIRPM
Director, Principia Estate and Asset Management

“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.”

“We appoint EKA due to their level of technical expertise and the quality of the advice they provide. 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.”

Anthony Quin MRICS ICIOB

“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.”

Rupert Wertheimer BA MIRPM
Senior Property Manager, Urang Property Management

“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.”
