Property giant says 18-month trial by its Northwood franchisee in partnership with recently-launched B-hive offering was a success.

Belvoir is to roll out a block management service across its 340-branch network of branches including Northwood, Newton Fallowell, Lovelle, Nicholas Humphreys and Belvoir.

The offering is via a deal with B-hive Block Management Partners, which is a subsidiary of 20-office property management giant HML. It launched the service last month.

HML’s own in-house operation manages over 85,000 properties across England and Wales.

B-hive, which operates independently of HML, enables agents to offer block management under their own brand, while having access to the B-hive back-office solutions, client finance service charge accounting, compliance, essential services, marketing, systems, software, client portal and training.

“We are delighted to have partnered with such a capable company and to have been able to bring this additional service to our franchisees,” says Belvoir Group CEO Dorian Gonsalves.

“This is a great opportunity for our franchisees to put their brand in front of more customers, bringing their specialist local knowledge, with B-hive sitting in the background providing the systems that are required. “By adding this service, they will look to build relationships with a much wider audience and deliver a wider range of services to clients.”
