Retail agency

Retail is arguably the most dynamic sector of the property market, constantly evolving to keep up with changing consumer demands.

Investors, developers, local authorities and retailers alike must strive to provide a shopping experience that excites consumers and encourages them to spend their hard earned income with real shops rather than online.

Retail property solutions for landlords and occupiers

Whether you’re a retailer, developer, investor, local authority or lender, we are here to help identify the most appropriate retail property solutions for you. Our retail agency team understands the nuances of the various market sectors.  We complete over 200 retail lettings a year, equating to in excess of 1 million square feet of retail space.

Whether you’re thinking of a major town centre regeneration project, an out-of-town retail park or the leasing of a single shop, our experienced team can provide bespoke retail advice, tailored to your needs. Our retail specialists are located in all our major offices and their advice is based on local knowledge, backed up by national expertise.

We also act on behalf of occupiers, providing advice on retail acquisitions and disposal programmes and a one-stop service that includes business rates, building consultancy and lease advisory as well as strategic corporate advisory overview.

We understand and have experience across a range of specialist retail property sectors.

High street retail

Our network of retail property specialists across the UK and Ireland has in-depth insight into local markets and the latest retail trends across both UK and Irish Markets.

We can help you lease or sell surplus retail space, mitigating shortfalls due to empty rates, service charge or loss of income.  We will help you attract the best tenants for your retail property on the most competitive market terms.

Shopping centres

With increased vacancy rates and scaled back retail expansion programmes, it’s never been more important to have a forward-thinking business plan for your shopping centre assets. Empty rates and service charge shortfalls have a major detrimental effect on capital values.

Our close relationship with the occupier market enables us to identify tenant demand and provide detailed advice on the lettability of your retail space.  We also provide regular health checks on tenants so that shopping centre owners can take early action to prevent damaging vacancies and can secure new tenants while retail units are still income producing.

We understand that a ‘one size fits all’ approach simply doesn’t work. We’ll look at your needs, your shopping centre’s position within the regional retail hierarchy and, most importantly, the consumers and their demographic profile to maximise asset performance.
