      Property Management

      Maximising college income and protecting it for the benefit of future generations of students is at the core of our property management service.

      Gonville & Caius, Cambridge

      A strong client relationship coupled with real tenant engagement are the keys to success.

      Many colleges have been clients of Bidwells for 20+ years. The length of these relationships and our efficient stewardship of £1.3bn+ of Oxford and Cambridge college assets is unrivalled.

      Significant date tracking, rent reviews, lease renewals, service charge management, robust client accounting, mitigating property voids and extensive tenant liaison, whilst adhering to statutory requirements and RICS guidelines, is all part of the service.

      Implementing property strategies with a no stone unturned approach has delivered real value and income growth. During Covid-19, comprehensive tenant engagement, establishing retailers’ individual circumstances and income analysis, has enabled the directing of targeted assistance to the most needy tenants. Hundreds of conversations over many months offered an invaluable link between tenants and the colleges as landlords in a sensitive and productive way.

      For Jesus College at Station Road, we took on a new multi-tenanted, mixed-use property, mitigated risk and repurposed areas, thereby increasing its value and rental income. Elsewhere, we introduced a Harry Potter experience store to Rose Crescent for Gonville & Caius to increase footfall.

      You will have peace of mind, knowing that your income is secure, maximised, and with detailed analysis and projections, the future of your income is in safe hands
