Are you a property owner?
Reducing your costs and maximising the potential of your lease
Property Owner Services
We combine our understanding of the commercial market with an analytical approach to the evidence, using case law precedent to win key technical points.
Are you liable for business rates on your vacant / development property? We can help.
Our in-depth knowledge of renewal procedure allows us - more often than not - to resolve lease renewal terms by mutual agreement.
How we can help you
Much of our work is focused on Central London offices, but increasingly we work outside London in the South East market on industrial and office space. We advise owners of property during the main stages of the lifecycle of a building:
Development / Redevelopment – limiting Business Rates by deleting hereditaments from the list and delaying their re-insertion assessment.
Leasing / Reletting – advise on key clauses drafted into a new lease like rent review clauses, break clauses and dilapidations provisions, working in conjunction with our agency team.
Lease events – negotiation of rent reviews, re-gears and lease renewals.
End of the lease – we negotiate Dilapidations, often in conjunction with Building Surveyors but taking early control of the negotiations so they do not get bogged down in arguments over cost of small items.
