Property strategy and management

How can I ensure my property portfolio meets my business needs?

A clear property strategy is an essential part of any business plan. If your property portfolio is fit for purpose, you can control costs and enhance your profitability.

Property can be one of the trickiest costs to manage, as most property holding structures aren’t very flexible. But there are still opportunities in the market that can help you achieve your business goals.

A clearly planned property management strategy can help you make considerable savings in hard property costs like rent, rates and maintenance. It can support your property management team, create productive workflows and better communications, and develop a property portfolio that reflects where your business is now and what it needs going forwards.

Lease acquisition, disposal and vacant property

How do I minimise the costs of leased property?

If you’re considering acquiring a new lease, we’ll support you commercially. We help you start using the property as quickly as possible, taking into account factors that determine the timeline for occupation and how these interact with the grant of the lease.

Some leases include inflexible deadlines for vacating a property, which can lead to significant and avoidable costs if unmanaged. We help mitigate unnecessary costs, make sure you know exactly what’s required to meet any specific conditions and advise on the best exit route, managing potential dilapidations liabilities along the way.

We understand the impact a vacant property can have and work with you to manage and reduce your risks. We’ll help manage the disposal process so you’re in a position to move quickly when opportunities arise.

Property litigation

What can I do to resolve a property dispute quickly?

When property is an essential part of your business, you need to resolve any disputes as quickly and sensitively as possible to minimise their impact.

The commercial imperative behind any action you take will vary from case to case. You might want to achieve maximum returns from your investment, move quickly to seal a deal or even put the brakes on. Whatever the context, we review every aspect and advise you on the options available to see if you can avoid expensive and time-consuming court intervention.

Working together, we keep you informed and in control throughout the process and, where appropriate, negotiate on your behalf.

Our collaborative approach helps you bypass the time-consuming legal side so you can get your merger or acquisition done quickly and cost-effectively.
