how can we help?
Our highly experienced team offers comprehensive, objective, collateral reviews and valuations, combining the approach of the traditional asset valuer with the needs of today’s lenders.
Understanding and managing risk in the retail development process is key to the viability of a project no matter how large or small.
We have extensive knowledge of retailer requirements from location through to accommodation. We conduct thorough research of each retail development opportunity, site or property, with our due diligence spanning:
- End occupier demand and accommodation requirements
- Projected rental and yield levels
- Physical and legal constraints
- Planning potential
- Mezzanine and interim finance
- Funding/investment sale
Private and public sector partnerships
Town centres are under more stress than ever before – high vacancy rates and falling values. We’re here to prop you back up working hand-in-hand with the public and private sectors to facilitate regeneration to give troubled locations a new lease of life. After all, the public sector is taking an increasingly proactive approach to working with the private sector to ensure communities deliver again. We have the right relationships across both sectors to create the perfect retail development team for you.
Whatever you need as a landlord, we advise and support you to drive maximum value from your retail assets.
With an expert team across the UK and Ireland, we are well placed to lease your retail space and mitigate against empty rates, service charges and losses of income.
Magnet for high quality tenants
In a difficult retail environment, we understand that passive marketing or blanket emailing won’t attract high quality tenants on the best commercial terms.
Our in-depth market knowledge means we bind together tailored leasing packages to suit the most likely end occupiers of a property. This gives you the best chance of attracting tenants on the most competitive market terms.
We have extensive knowledge of various sub sectors including F&B, licensed premises, gyms, health and beauty and immersive leisure. Working in conjunction with our planning team we provide advice on the potential for change of use to maximise letting and investment value.
All markets covered
We understand the retail market inside and out. Our national team covers multiple locations across the UK and Ireland giving us the in-depth knowledge, and experience, to understand the significant differences between selling restaurant leases in Central London for large premiums, to leasing space in a regional market to an independent operator.
Working closely with our shopping centre management team, we manage or lease over 17m sq ft of shopping centres and retail parks too. Our range of services includes driving income from mall commercialisation initiatives to regular health checks on tenants so that we can take early action to prevent damaging vacancies.
Retail is rapidly changing; formats, brands and requirements are constantly evolving.
We understand this market and the key issues surrounding it. We advise retailers on their property strategies, allowing them to concentrate on what’s important – their business.
Retail acquisition services
Whether it is leading a national acquisition programme, or acquiring a solus Central London flagship store, we have the team, experience and skills to deliver.
We provide more than a simple brokerage service, working closely with you to understand your business requirements and make sure that our strategies are aligned with your brand values.
Our national network of offices gives us unrivalled on-the-ground knowledge which we use to inform our advice.
We’ll tailor our service to your needs and deliver it in the way that suits you best, whether that’s a single point of contact, multiple contacts or geo-specific.
A dynamic and successful retail portfolio needs constant monitoring to ensure all units are fit for purpose.
Units may underperform due to pitch change or unit configuration. Whatever the reason, we are ready to tackle your disposals in a proactive, efficient manner, whether it is a single unit or a portfolio.
Our bespoke disposal campaigns are considered, targeted and vigorously pursued.
