General Practice

Acquisition and Disposal Advice

We are experienced in the provision of acquisition advice to companies seeking to expand their property holdings for occupational or investment purposes. We are able to undertake property searches, advising clients, enabling them to achieve the best possible terms for the acquisition of freehold and leasehold property. For companies seeking to rationalise their property holdings we are able to advise on disposal strategies and how best to achieve the best possible terms for the sale or leasing of a surplus property.

Agency

Across the practice, we have extensive experience of selling residential and commercial property together with development land sites. We have sold individual properties and portfolios having acted on behalf of individuals, lenders and development companies.

Using the extensive nature of our contacts, we are on occasions aware of clients looking for certain property types to purchase and are able to introduce clients to one another promptly and with the minimum of disturbance to any tenants if the property is let. This can be important when a low key marketing approach is requested by the vendor.

Compulsory Purchase

A Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) is made to enable a public body such as a local authority to buy land or buildings which Parliament has decided is in the public interest. If your property becomes the subject of a CPO you need to obtain specialist advice promptly.

We will value your interest and enter into negotiations with the acquiring authority in order to obtain the best possible price for you. You will also be eligible for disturbance costs. The general principle of CPO compensation is that you should be no worse or better off in financial terms after the acquisition.

If your property is the subject of a CPO and you require further advice then please contact Ian Stanistreet on 07973 656 196

Property Audits

Our property audit service has been launched to enable public and private sector organisations to understand their property holdings and achieve occupational cost savings. A property audit will be tailored to an individual company's requirements but is likely to include a calculation of cost in use, an assessment of intensity of use, an assessment of functional obsolescence with recommendations on planned maintenance and rental/capital value.

For more information, please contact Tony Mancini on 07768 032 207

Rating and Taxation

Our experienced surveyors are able to carry out a review of the rateable value assessment and advise on the merits of lodging an appeal with the VOA. We are able to handle the appeal throughout the process.

We are able to provide valuations for Probate and Taxation purposes. Working with our partners we can advise on capital allowance claims on commercial property which can, in many instances, produce significant tax savings to commercial property owners.

Strategic Property Advice

Advice to public and private sector organisations, both freeholders and tenants on how to most cost effectively meet their accommodation requirements. Through our network of offices we are able to provide a coordinated response to national instructions with local expert knowledge.

If you are looking to either purchase or dispose of a property asset, we can provide advice upon the best method of doing so.
