The Search

Having established the parameters of your requirement a search is initiated. We use a combination of resources which means you will be getting the most accurate and up to date information on all the available commercial property meeting your requirements:

  • Database: We use one of the industry's leading computer databases of available commercial property information which is updated to our office on-line on a daily basis
  • Market Knowledge: Many commercial properties may become available without even being marketed publicly. Through our extensive sources and contacts we hope to get the information first for you.
  • Agents network: Commercial and residential property agents rely on the exchange of information between themselves to do deals, as a result we have our own 'postal' system that collects and circulates information on properties and requirements to over 500 agents everyday.
  • Traditional legwork: We will always compliment a search by thoroughly combing the chosen locations on foot for information and boards that may have slipped through by other sources.
  • Targeted mailing: This can be arranged to make direct contact with occupiers of a chosen location, business type and size. This service is at an additional cost.

The Negotiations

Advice on the lease terms is one of the most important areas in the acquisition of new premises to ensure that you get the best terms for your company.

  • Rent or Price: We will be able to provide comparable evidence to support the terms agreed from research and market knowledge.
  • Lease terms; There are many points that need to be considered such as Privity of Contract, Security of Tenure, Alienation, Dilapidations, Schedules of Condition, and Service Charge provisions.
  • Solicitors; We will be able to provide information and discuss lease terms knowledgeably with your legal representatives.

Taking occupation

In many instances the hard work for you only starts after an acquisition has taken place. The move itself is traumatic enough, but consideration has to be given to making the commercial property ready for your occupation. To help, we have our own design and project management department on hand if required.

  • Fit-out: Partitioning, decoration, carpeting etc.
  • Cabling: Computers, phones & data
  • Refurbishment: Building works, extensions and structural work
  • Furniture: Help with sourcing.
