MEET A TEAM

Tom Sleven – Managing Director

As our managing director and heading up the team Tom has over 20 years of experience in the property industry.  From working within law firms to running successful property practices in Sussex. 

Most recently Tom headed up the team of a successful estate agency in Brighton for five years.  Whilst specialising in residential property he spent a great deal of time working within and assisting the commercial and management departments of that business looking at ways to create sales and more business that might have otherwise not existed.  

In total Tom has amassed over 20 years of experience in the property field.  He has worked at a senior level for a nationwide property investment company. Working his way quickly to managing his own branch for one of Sussexs’ largest and busiest estate agencies.  

Previously Tom spent 2 years working for a nationwide conveyancing firm where he really honed his knowledge of the legal process surrounding property sales and acquisitions.  

It is in gaining this broad range of knowledge that Tom noticed an opportunity in the market for a company able to offer lease and title plans across the UK in the most efficient and accurate way allowing those companies ordering the plans to simply order via PlansUK and get on with their own workload.  Currently we know that many property professionals (solicitors, managing agents, surveyors and commercial agents) are spending a lot of time finding a suitable provider and organising plans, this is taking them away from their own jobs and essentially wasting company time. 

PlansUK was create to fill that place in the market allowing our clients to simply order plans anywhere in the UK without any delay in the confidence that PlansUK will arrange everything from that point. 

Tom lives with his partner and has two daughters (Grace and Harriet) with whom he fills most of his weekends and spare time.  He still likes to pretend that he can surf when possible and enjoys family trips away whenever possible.
