Dependent on the condition, type and stage of the commercial property asset, we will also provide recommendations for any works or alternations that could increase its value and desirability to target tenants or buyers.

Our recommendations often include advice on refurbishment works to assist with improving a viewer's first impression, including layout suggestions or advice on the specifications required to achieve local headline rents.

Viewing Events

All enquiries on your commercial property asset are dealt with by our experienced Commercial Property Team.

Genuinely interested and able clients are then booked in for viewings.

Any viewings arranged on your property will be accompanied by one of our experienced Commercial Team members, who are trained to showcase your property to its full potential.

All viewings will be followed by constructive feedback in order to gauge applicant interest and feeling towards your property. From this feedback, we will then offer advice to address any negative comments and advise on whether these points can be easily fixed.

We endeavor to provide regular feedback on a weekly basis in the form of a viewing schedule or follow up immediately after the viewing has taken place.
