Growing annual rents

£475m of rents and service charges collected annually.


Grade A building


A 130,000 sq ft Grade A office building was predominantly let to the Government with short-term break options on all of the leases. Despite huge pressure on the occupier to break, and as a result of protracted negotiations, we were successful in removing the break options in return for a rent-free period. As a result the clients were spared a significant void, secured an additional 5 years of income and the capital value of the asset increased by £2m.

80 industrial units


We reviewed the leases of over 80 units on an industrial estate in the Midlands and identified a risk of loss of a significant amount of income in the short term. Our teams engaged in key negotiations and agreed a number of lease regears/reversionary leases which both extended the income profile and raised the rental income.


The retention and creation of value is key to the performance of the properties we manage.

Central to our asset management strategy is understanding and aligning our clients' investment requirements with that strategy, balancing risk and reward.

To maximise returns and enhance future capital growth, we strive to retain and maximise clients' income, and minimise clients liabilities. This is only possible by developing a close working relationship with occupiers, having a great team and an in-depth knowledge of occupational and investment markets.

We create and execute strategies at either portfolio or property level within the industrial, office, retail and residential sectors by:

  • Providing strategic portfolio/property advice
  • Occupational lease re-gearing, rent reviews, lease renewals, transactional management, strategic refurbishments and capex works
  • Sourcing/implementing additional income streams
  • Identifying/appraising redevelopment opportunities and alternative uses
  • Controlling and minimising clients' irrecoverable costs
