We specialise in strategic and problem acquisitions and in network development. We have undertaken work in every major town and city across the UK and have amassed considerable expertise in delivering the right property – from small leaseholds to the largest dealership sites across the UK. If aspirations are unrealistic we are not afraid to say so at the outset and we work closely with our Clients to find affordable solutions within the desired time-frame.
When instructed to dispose of property our Clients benefit from our pro-active, intelligent approach, working with the wider property industry to ensure maximum coverage. We are happy to work on a joint agency basis with multi-national practices where we bring insight and in-depth knowledge of our specialist sectors. We are always pro-active and aim to add value by finding additional income streams and reducing holding costs during the marketing phase.
Professional Services & Lease Advisory
We are experts in conducting rent reviews and lease renewals on automotive, roadside and industrial property and have extensive experience in managing third party proceedings. At lease renewal we extract the best results through the application of the statutory machinery or by amending the lease terms in return for strategic concessions.
We are RICS registered valuers and are regularly called upon to produce valuations on all types of roadside property. We have extensive experience in reducing occupational costs through non-domestic rates appeals and tribunal hearings.
Investment & Asset Management
Our sector-specific experience is key to securing the best returns and avoiding poor investment decisions. We have assembled, marketed and sold more than £0.5 billion of property on behalf of our Automotive Clients and we are regularly engaged to act on behalf of Financial Institutions and to assist Private Clients with their investment structures.
We act for investors and end-occupiers on automotive, mixed use and drive-through developments, working closely with our Clients to model the financial and functional aspects of any given project before initiating the development process. We have established strong working relationships with many practitioners in the property, design and construction sectors and can provide a full development service to our Clients’ specific requirements. Equally we are happy to work with existing consultants and internal property, operations and finance personnel. We are fully scalable and have the capacity to manage national roll-out programmes. We have a proven track record in this regard, having successfully managed an ambitious 15-year expansion programme on behalf of a leading car manufacturer, locating sites and developing more than 200 class-leading motor dealerships across the UK.
Drawing on our experience in managing over 250 discrete property locations across the UK we see effective management as key to maintaining property values and reducing holding and occupational costs. Our linked-up approach to property ensures that opportunities to restructure leases, secure additional value through the grant of concessions or augmenting core income from additional rental opportunities are identified and addressed. We manage most property sectors including residential apartment blocks.
