Property Management Specialists

East Block Group know how important it is for an agent to have local knowledge and experience. So, we are proud to provide a personal, professional and proactive service, tailored to the needs and preferences of each individual client for property management, and entire management of blocks of flats or housing developments. Our personal approach and dedication establish a good connection with freeholders, landlords and the directors of management companies.

Who we are.

East Block Group’s Directors are Sam Lapworth and Ian Hurnell, supported by experienced service charge accountants, property managers and administrators.

Sam has been managing properties in the Block Sector for more than 16 years, both in the UK and abroad in France. A full Member of the IRPM and Associate RICS Accredited, she has worked for both large and small block managing agents and brings an extensive working knowledge of leasehold management, legislation, health & safety compliance, and CDM Regulations. Whilst Sam has managed all types of properties, including new build developments, she has a particular interest in old and/or listed properties and is experienced in handling heritage planning requirements and of the construction and maintenance methods for properties exceeding 100 years old.

Ian recently entered the Property Management industry in 2020, following a 30-year career in the fire, security and health and Safety sectors, where he was exposed to a host of relevant block management experience. By transferring his skills to East Block Group, he has proved to be an invaluable asset to the company and provided an advantage to enhance its client’s facilities servicing requirements, rarely found at other block managing companies.

Further Information


Sam Lapworth has started taking care of our properties I cannot tell you how much our experience has improved. She is utterly fantastic, I am a big believer in giving the positive with the negative and people only ever seem to get in touch to complain these days so I would like to get in touch to say how pleased we are with the service that Sam gives.

She is incredibly courteous over email and on the phone. She is conscientious and has NEVER palmed us off. She is an absolute credit to the company and I really can’t thank you enough for getting her to sort out our properties.
