As a leasehold property owner, I am lawfully obliged to pay service charges to these managing agents and have done so for over a decade. However, it seems apparent that with past and recent renovation and decorative work requirements, the contracts, although fairly tendered, always seem to go to the lowest offer which invariably always comes from South East Contractors Ltd. This firm recently caused considerable damage to my property which as of yet is still fully unresolved. I would recommend that if this company is contracted by DHT to carry out any work on your property that it is thoroughly scrutinised. Additionally, DHT seem to always contract surveyors Atkinson Beeston who seem to charge extortionate amounts of money for their work (£1800 for two recent visits just to overlook progress of remedial work being a recent example). Challenge everything which falls short of standards and costs expected.
