Many business owners / managers believe identifying and acquiring suitable commercial property for their business is similar to buying a house. Unfortunately, it’s not.
Searching for and acquiring the most suitable property for your business can be time consuming and a drain on resources. The process of searching, information gathering, shortlisting, viewing and negotiating takes time and expertise.
To do it well also requires strong, up to the minute market knowledge. Seeking professional advice to assist allows you to focus on running your business and provides advantageous results.
By using a commercial property advisor like ourselves, you can be sure that you will be exposed to all the suitable properties available, matching your criteria. This can often not be achieved by the general public as a large number of properties are not actively marketed. For example, many companies who may be considering downsizing will not place a board on the building for fear of the impact on their business, however, we will know about these ‘off market’ opportunities.
In addition, with our detailed knowledge of the most recent deals, you can also be sure that the property will be acquired on the most favourable terms possible for you.
The keys stages of the process are:-
- Assessment of business requirements and determination of the property brief
- Preliminary search of all properties (including ‘off market’ opportunities)
- Schedule of available options
- Review of options with client and shortlisting
- Accompanied viewings of shortlisted options
- Analysis of suitable properties
- Negotiation of most advantageous terms (could be on more than 1 property)
- Liaising with solicitors throughout the legal process.
We will work closely with you from the very beginning to the day you move in to your new premises and beyond. Providing regular contact throughout and ensuring that the process is as simple and seamless as possible. In addition, we can also utilise a pool of professional contacts to assist in other matters that may need to be considered such as office furniture, building works, insurance etc.
Our aim is to take the hassle away from you, allowing you to concentrate on the running of your business.
