Stratton Creber Commercial secures London portfolio
The Plymouth office of Stratton Creber Commercial is delighted to confirm its recent appointment as managing agent for a portfolio of six properties in London.
Appointed by Gerrick Rose Animal Trust, a charity which provides financial assistance to organisations involved in providing care to animals, the contract will see Stratton Creber manage six sizeable properties and deal with all elements of their maintenance and letting.
Headquartered in Plymouth with Tony Cusack, partner at GA Solicitors as chairman, the Gerrick Rose Trust supports other animal focused charities nationwide. Recent examples of support undertaken by the trust include donations to Battersea Dogs Home and The Flicka Foundation, a small horse and donkey sanctuary in Helston.
Head of property management at Stratton Creber Commercial, Ian Le Grice, feels this is a significant show of confidence in the abilities of his team: “This portfolio was previously managed by a firm of London agents for a number of years. This move demonstrates the confidence that the trust has in our ability to deliver. With the trustees also based in the south west, choosing an agent in their locality will undoubtedly be a huge advantage.”
Tony Cusack, partner of Plymouth law firm GA and chairman of Gerrick Rose Trust, added: ‘We have been considering the appointment of a new managing agent for some time and the preference has always been to appoint one local to the trustees rather than local to the properties. Following discussions with Stratton Creber the board were given the necessary confidence that their interests would not only be protected but enhanced. With the intention of adding to the portfolio by acquisitions in the south west, it was a logical choice to appoint Stratton Creber Commercial.’
