I’m a Partner in our Lease Consultancy department based in Birmingham. I specialise in Lease Consultancy matters including rent reviews, lease renewals, lease re-gears and lease due diligence. I have focused on the industrial and logistics sectors throughout the East and West Midlands over the last 15 years.

I provide strategic advice to clients on asset maximisation at rent review and lease renewal, including negotiating and preparing expert reports during third party referrals to Independent Experts, Arbitrators and for Court proceedings. I work closely with our Birmingham Agency team, providing seamless and holistic advice to ensure asset value is maximised. I also work closely with our Capital Markets team, providing lease due diligence and strategic advice.

My clients include Prologis UK, Aviva Investors, Custodian REIT, Knight Frank Investment Management, and Wolseley UK.

  • Stonebridge Cross, Droitwich – I advised M&G Real Estate on the purchase of a five asset industrial & logistics portfolio, in conjunction with colleagues from the Capital Markets & Industrial Agency teams. The April 2018 rent review of an industrial unit in Droitwich was then triggered, with discussions securing a settlement significantly in excess of the original ERV.
  • Apex Park, Daventry – I advised Knight Frank Investment Management on the rent review of a logistics unit at Apex Park, Daventry, securing an 18% rental increase, exceeding the client’s expectations and significantly increasing the overall asset value.
  • Ashby Business Park, Ashby de la Zouch – I advised Custodian REIT on the lease renewal of a 71,000 sq ft logistics unit in Ashby de la Zouch, securing a new 10 year lease at a rent representing a 15% increase.
