Cockett Henderson - Property

A formal Management Agreement is signed between the Freeholder and Cockett Henderson setting out the level of service and terms agreed.

There are no hidden charges. Any costs over and above the standard fee are put in writing to the Clients prior to charging and are subject to formal approval.
