Commercial Property Management

“Working with tenants and fully utilising the building to the best of its ability is in everyone’s interest. Ultimately if the tenant’s business is able to flourish, the landlord’s asset will become more desirable.”

We look to both protect and maximise the value of our client property interests and assets. We have an established presence within the region and pride ourselves on developing landlord and tenant relationships which helps to support both the business occupiers and the performance of a landlord clients’ property assets.  We work with occupants and landlords to ensure that let premises remain occupied. We believe that a fundamental element of this process is working with occupants to provide a building that gives them the best chance of running a successful business.

We are also able to undertake regular property inspections on behalf of our clients and provide advice in relation to the structuring of commercial lease agreements and the management of tenant applications, in close collaboration with our clients’ solicitors and legal representatives.

  • Management of communal facilities and infrastructure
