Leslie Perkins - Chartered Surveyors

Chartered Surveyors

 

We provide extensive advice on a range of services including:

Retail Agency:
We have an experienced team handling lettings, disposals and acquisitions throughout the UK in both Shopping Centre and High Street locations. We work closely with our clients analysing the branch contributions within their existing portfolio, which allied to demographic information, enables us to target suitable towns for expansion.

Professional Work – Rent Reviews and Lease Renewals:
We act for both landlord’s and tenant’s and we conclude in the order of 100 negotiations during a typical year. We use our knowledge of rental trends, retail requirements and forthcoming developments to negotiate the most favourable deals for our clients.

Investment:
We advise on the sale and purchase of retail properties for investment purposes including individual buildings, retail parades and shopping centres. Our retail knowledge enables us to identify towns with good rental growth prospects thereby enhancing investment returns for our clients. It also enables us to obtain advanced notice of schemes which might undermine properties in our clients existing portfolio enabling us to initiate a sales strategy before the information is known to the general market.

Development:
Our in depth knowledge of retailer’s requirements means we are able to focus on towns where there is pent up demand thereby reducing the letting risk, achieving target rents and maximising development returns. Typical development work includes the acquisition of in town or edge of town retail or mixed use sites for refurbishment/redevelopment followed by letting and subsequent sale of the investment.
