The PHP Group finance team supports the property management and asset management teams dealing with rent collection, service charge management and the payment of invoices to suppliers and contractors.
The team is actively involved in the funding process for new property development, asset management projects and in the due diligence and takes on procedures for the acquisition of property investments and corporate purchases.
Rent is typically charged quarterly in advance but may vary with the exact terms of your lease agreement. We aim to issue rent demands approximately six weeks prior to the payment due date to allow plenty of time for GP tenants to obtain their NHS reimbursement.
We recommend that payment is made by BACS or standing order using the bank details included on the rent demand. Bank details can be provided to you by the finance team upon request. Payment by electronic transfer is proven to be safer than the submission of a cheque through the post.
Rent and service charge payments are due strictly in accordance with the terms of your lease and should be made on or before the relevant due date. Failure to do this can result in late payment interest being charged. Queries about any rental payment or invoice raised by the PHP subsidiary, that is, your landlord, should be made in advance of the due date and addressed to Simon Maynard.
We aim to pay suppliers in accordance with their stated payment terms. We will raise any queries that we have on supplier invoices in a timely manner to assist in meeting this objective; however, any queries about payments that you do have should be directed to Minnie Kaur or Simon Maynard.
