I’m a Partner based in our Leeds office covering the North of England. I specialise in lease consultancy and valuation work. I qualified as a Charted Surveyor in 1999 and have a wide range of professional practice experience including rating, asset valuations, lease consultancy and town and country planning advice. I concentrate on the retail/restaurant sector advising clients on both high street and out of town retail properties.
Prior to joining Gerald Eve’s Leeds office, I worked in the Retail Department of our West End office dealing with rating and lease consultancy across the South East of England. I also provide expert witness reports for rent review and lease renewal dispute resolution throughout Yorkshire and the North East. I provide Red Book valuations and advise occupiers for company accounting purposes as well as banks and building societies for secured lending in the retail sector.
I have advised WH Smith, Laura Ashley and Pizza Express on their out of town retail portfolios across the north of England, on issues such as lease consultancy instructions including redevelopment/relocation advice upon lease expiry. I specialise in rent review and lease renewal advice for both landlord and tenant clients, including Costa Coffee, WH Smith, Phones 4u, Laura Ashley, Byron Burgers, Pizza Express, ASK and Zizzi as well as private individuals.
