About Us

Property Advisory Services (PAS) was created to provide quality advice and solutions to managing agents, property owners, property managers, landlords and occupiers in relation to all aspects of commercial property and premises management.

We provide both technical and property management advice to many commercial properties including the iconic 30 St Mary Axe (The Gherkin).

Richard Stead and Steve Browne founded PAS in 2009. Both Richard & Steve have a specific understanding of customers & occupier needs, having occupied senior positions for engineering service providers, commercial managing agents, developers and owner-occupiers throughout the last 20 years.

The company has both Technical and Vertical transportation consultant teams supporting our clients nationally.

Why is PAS different to other consultancies?

In many cases, consultants do not always appreciate the key drivers in managing and running properties. On occasion advice provided can demonstrate a lack of understanding with regards to the possible implications on the landlord in relation to tenant leases and/or the buildings service charge.

This is of course understandable as many consultants have never had the responsibility of physically managing commercial property. In this scenario, it will prove difficult providing advice that duly considers all aspects of the lease, service charge, landlord and tenant obligations. We believe this is the primary difference between PAS; our Directors have managed & been involved with commercial buildings for over 20 years.

All PAS consultants receive training in commercial property management and service charge.

We provide advice and management in all aspects of core property services contracts including; mechanical and electrical engineering maintenance, lift & escalator maintenance, security and cleaning.

This also includes advice on service charge budgets to ensure they are competitive whilst allowing for high standards in service delivery and in full accordance and compliance with the RICS service charge code of practice. In these tough economic times, service charges budgets and life cycle building services plant replacement projects are being closely scrutinised, therefore the advice we provide takes into account the possible implications of such expenditure.
