Property Search

I’m a Partner based in Leeds and specialise in providing advice to the leisure, logistics and retail sectors. I also give general practice advice on commercial property in the Yorkshire and North East regions.

My experience is mainly in the provision of valuation advice covering rating, asset valuations, lease consultancy and compensation. I also advise on the more strategic areas of property occupation and report to many clients at a national portfolio level.

I give rating advice to national operators such as Halfords, Homebase, Booker, Taylor Wimpey, DHL, Game and rating and valuation advice to national leisure operators including Whitbread, Greene King, Admiral Taverns, Mitchells & Butlers, Amber Taverns, Stonegate, Hawthorn Leisure, Radisson Hotels, Cameron, Joseph Holts, and Frederic Robinsons .

I provide rating and asset valuation advice to local authorities in Yorkshire including Kirklees MC, Barnsley MBC, Rotherham MBC, Wakefield MDC, Sheffield City Council, Leeds City Council and East Riding of Yorkshire Council and asset valuation advice to Government departments including The National Probation Service, The Employment Service and HM Customs and Excise.

 

MY RECENT PROJECTS

  • Homebase – I was instructed on a national basis to seek rates mitigation opportunities during a major investment programme to 90 stores all over the UK.
  • Taylor Wimpey – I’m involved in an ongoing historic audit going back as far as 1990 securing savings from overpaid rates and council tax demands. The current savings are close to £400,000 and increasing as more errors continue to be found.
  • DHL – I advised on a project involving the acquisition of a property adjoining an existing DHL asset and subsequently securing a rate saving by merging the two separate assessments into one at a lower overall RV.
