If you are a business and want to ensure your property is fit for purpose, we can advise on any defects or maintenance issues so that your future occupation of the property is protected or any defects are brought to the attention of your landlord.
Commercial Property Management & Audits
When you sign a rental agreement, as a tenant you have entered into a contract and you may be obligated to maintain your building to a certain standard. We can undertake a full audit to ensure you, as the tenant, are complying with both the law and the terms of your agreement. By handing over the management of your property to us, you can be confident the building which, after all, houses your business, will be highly maintained and we will ensure your landlord meets their statutory duty whilst you focus your attention on running your company.
Rent Reviews & Lease Renewals
Your landlord will usually seek to review your rent every three, four or five years depending on the terms of your lease and when your lease is due to expire, you may need some expert advice, strong property negotiation skills and legal knowledge to secure your business’ location. We can manage the entire rent review and lease renewal process on your behalf ensuring you receive the best terms and conditions and that you are paying a fair market rate.
If you are looking to acquire a new property or you are on the hunt for new business premises – perhaps you have outgrown your current location or the property is no longer meeting the requirements for your business, we can identify potential properties and negotiate the purchase or lease terms and conditions.
Generally, it is the tenant who meets the rates bill. If you think your business rating assessment and the amount you pay is too high, we can undertake the appeal on your behalf and negotiate with the Valuation Office.
