PBM Property Management has been selected to take over the management of Lion Wharf, a collection of 132 high specification apartments and 10 townhouses developed by Bellway, set beside the River Thames in the heart of Old Isleworth.
Lion Wharf offers the very best in waterside living, with many apartments enjoying views across the Thames. Most of these homes have outside space and are styled to fit perfectly with modern city lifestyles.
These enviably located apartments and townhouses gather around a courtyard area, echoing the characterful surroundings and listed buildings nearby. Lion Wharf is an atmospheric development, yet every home has a thoroughly modern interior and high-quality finishes, balconies or terraces, and parking is available to purchase.
What kind of property management company was Bellway looking for?
Bellway Homes were looking to review their preferred supplier list and a managing agent with a proven track record in customer service and communication.
How was the tender process?
Following initial teams meetings with Bellway Homes, we provided a detailed presentation outlining our services, our values, as well as our ability to manage for Bellway Homes, including in the fields of customer service and communications. This included reference to our testimonials on Feefo and Google Review.
pbm provided a number of site inspection reports highlighting areas they can improve upon and a breakdown of the priorities from these inspections and reports.

- attending to the alarms on the car park extraction units
- communications with the Leaseholder Group at Lion Wharf
- glazing and window cleaning
- lighting timing change
- bulky waste clearance of bin storerooms
