8th May 2022

Well-established regional property management business, formerly known as WSB Property Asset Management, has rebranded following its sale by Leeds based parent company WSB property Consultants.  

WSB has successfully operated a property management department within the Yorkshire region for over 10 years with Alex Jowett heading up the business from 2019.
Notable buildings within the portfolio include Munro House and The Leeming Building in Leeds city centre. The portfolio of commercial properties under management is predominantly focused on the Yorkshire region, although the business has grown its reach to include instructions in Scotland in the north and south to properties in the Midlands.

After securing the new investments, Alex Jowett,  Director of Inhabet, commented “This is an exciting opportunity for the business. My new business partners and I are enthusiastic about the next chapter for Inhabet. Since taking control of the business in 2019, I have been keen to put my stamp on property management and the new investment will not only allow us to expand the business but to continue to innovate our processes and the services we provide to our clients”

The new investment has been secured from Design Tonic, an exciting commercial interiors firm, who have invested in the business to assist in expanding the portfolio and continuing to innovate. Inhabet will continue to manage the existing portfolio of commercial properties with Alex Jowett retaining his role as Managing Director.

Partner of WSB Property Consultants, Robin Beagley explained “The approach from Design Tonic presented an excellent opportunity to dispose of the property management arm and allow WSB to focus on our core business, namely investment, retail and office agency, development consultancy and valuation work.  Alex has done a great job in growing the property management business and we wish him, and the team at Design Tonic, all the best for the future growth of Inhabet”.
