Asset management & property investment
Property is an ever-popular asset class. The ride can get bumpy, but property never really goes out of fashion. Bricks and mortar – just as likely steel and glass – have the attraction of a tangible asset with an underlying value and the potential to produce an income.With the UK property market firmly split into ‘prime’ and ‘secondary’, well advised investors are increasingly looking at opportunities to increase the value of more secondary assets through pro-active management, re-gearing leases and encouraging their tenants to commit to premises for the longer term.
Of course, owning property is not without its downside. Tenant default and empty rates problems can soon transform a property producing a tidy sum to a net liability – and wreck the capital value of your portfolio.
Our considerable experience extends to all of the legal issues around buying, leasing and selling commercial property investments. We will be with you all the way to ensure the right balance is struck between keeping your assets producing income, and their future marketability.
We also act for a number of large occupiers and have a good grasp on what is and is not acceptable to most tenants in getting deals done.
