Johnson Fellows currently manage 33 sublet properties for the company, but that number is set to increase as Talarius continue to acquire additional sites.

The Birmingham-based surveyors already have a strong relationship with Talarius, handling lettings, disposals and undertaking building surveying and management services for the company.

Ginny Simpson, surveyor in the property management department at Johnson Fellows, said: “We are very pleased to be able to announce that we have been appointed by Talarius to handle service charge management for their UK portfolio.

“We will be working hard to deliver substantial cost savings for the company by providing a highly professional service charge management package, which will include challenging levels of service charges that do not appear to be in line with lease agreements.

“At Johnson Fellows, we always aim to exceed our client’s expectations by adding value and reducing liabilities within their portfolios. This new instruction for service charge management follows the successful delivery of our management service, which we currently provide for Talarius.”
