There is £212 billion of debt secured against UK commercial property, 70% of which is due to mature before the end of 2016. The sale of property debt portfolios by the major senior lenders is set to become the fastest growing area of capital markets.
We are one of the leading advisors to banks, insolvency practitioners, property owners and private equity groups looking to acquire or dispose of debt portfolios. We also help tenants negotiate discounted pay offs with borrowers and debt acquirers.
We have advised on over £3 billion of distressed debt portfolios in 2012, linked to 2,200 individual commercial property assets. The major banks are continuing to deleverage; interest from a broad range of buyers continues to increase.
Helping you understand risk and value options, asset by asset
We will provide the essential knowledge you need – whether you’re buying a debt portfolio and want to know about upcoming portfolio disposals or if you’re identifying target buyers for your portfolio sale. We’ll also make sure you are aware of one-to-one off-market opportunities.
If you’re a buyer, we’ll make sure you fully understand each asset and its local market context. We’ll create an asset management plan and use our project management and fixed charge receivership expertise to secure a defined and efficient work out.
If you’re selling a debt portfolio, we provide commercial property valuation services and advice on constructing your portfolio in preparation for disposal.
