As a firm we not only provide advice across the valuation, agency development, landlord and tenant, management and dispute resolution sectors but also have good knowledge in other spheres as well.
As costs of occupation or holding property are becoming increasingly important so the issue of business rates as a cost centre takes an ever increasing focus. By working with a dedicated business rates consultant we ensure that legislation case law does not pass us by. In doing so when negotiating with the Valuation Office or by making representations to the local valuation tribunal we ensure a fair assessment for premises.
Compulsory purchase of a site assembly for regeneration or infrastructure improvement is a significant concern for affected individuals and businesses. When making a claim for compensation it is important to understand what can be claimed and why. Is there any business disturbance? What is the value of the land taken? Does the property need to be included within a scheme? By advising clients in various UK locations we make sure we are on top of current legislation, we know how to approach negotiations with legitimate fees forming part of any claim.
Strategic advice for a property can be multifaceted. Should part of a portfolio be sold, extended, developed, demolished? Should leases be renewed, extinguished, reappraised? How do future plans effect the functionality and value of property both now and in the future? Is the best advice to employ a specialist, perhaps a structural engineer, environmental consultant or grant expert? By using our regional knowledge to coordinate the work of consultants and coupling this with a thorough understanding of trends and development, the client receives expert advice to assist in strategic decision making.
