I am an Associate within our lease consultancy department based in the Birmingham Office.
I advise clients in the manufacturing, distribution, trade counter, car dealerships, car supermarkets, tyre and exhausts and petrol filling stations, focusing on lease consultancy issues, predominantly being rent reviews, renewals and lease restricting/ regears across mainly the Midlands. I am also a registered valuer undertaking valuations for a number of purposes including loan security, internal and for account purposes.
For the first 6 years of my career, I have mainly focused on rent reviews, renewals and valuations of car dealership, car supermarket, petrol filling stations and tyre and exhaust centres. For the past two years my focus has now included industrial logistics, manufacturing and trade counter facilities ranging from 3,000 sq ft – 150,000 sq ft and larger.
I undertake rent reviews and lease renewals, including reporting my opinion of ERV, undertaking the negotiations and if required preparation and submission of expert reports for third party referrals to Arbitrators, Independent Experts and for lease renewals for Court proceedings. In addition, I advise and prepare valuation reports for a number of clients including banks for loan security and occupiers for internal purposes.
I advise occupier clients such as Wolseley, Dulux, Network Rail, Sims Metal Management, Johnsons, Ocado, Yodel, ATS and JLR. As well as landlord and fund clients such as Schroders, DTZI, Threadneedle and Prologis.
