Occupier Advisory

We are the only specialists to provide advice solely to occupiers on a national basis.

We do not act for landlords, but in the best interests of occupiers, thus avoiding potential conflicts of interest.

We are experienced in working with organisations going through business transformation – be it expansion, contraction or consolidation - and offer national coverage via our UK network of offices. We provide a wide range of services and work hard to ensure our strategies are completely in-line with your business objectives.

We are mainly involved in the commercial and office sector, both private and public, and our bespoke advice covers the full spectrum of occupancy matters, which can include:

Business transformation – Relocation and acquisition advice including property searches and cost analysis

Stay or Go? – Fully costed appraisals that inform occupational decisions

Reducing floor space – Lease and freehold disposal strategies for surplus accommodation

How much space do I need? – Space audits and workplace consultancy to ensure best utilisation of floor space

Extracting value from leases – Negotiating lease restructuring with landlords

Managing costs of occupation – Challenging rent reviews, business rates and service charge costs

Managing risk on contractual commitments – Due diligence advice including building services surveys and dilapidations.
