There is a multitude of different ways in which agents can be of benefit to their clients. Our view in acting as agents is that you do not just receive advice on one specialised level but rather a variety of levels. For example, having an agent sell your property is only half the service. You then need to buy and in that situation, you need more professional advice than when you sell. Often you hear people talk about buying a commercial property with little or no knowledge of the industry.
Following are a few examples of how our service can benefit you beyond the normal:
Restructuring a property portfolio can be a long and complex process. Every property owner has different requirements for their portfolio. Whether it consists of purely retail properties or an even spread of commercial, retail and industrial or vacant unleased commercial buildings, ASM can assist in guiding you to your desired goal.
Rent review and lease renewal negotiations and advice
Acting on behalf of owners or tenants in establishing a strategy for a lease renewal or review. There has been a dramatic shift in the nature of different types of reviews in recent years. For example, when the market is moving quickly and values are rising, landlords want market reviews and tenants want fixed increases and when growth is slow with no inflation landlords to want fixed increases and tenants want CPI. We assist in ensuring that clients know the market and understand the alternatives available to them at a given point in time.
Long and short-term property strategy
What you want or can get from your property today may be different from what you can have in the short or long term. At ASM Commercial we will evaluate the highest and best use for your property and coordinate a plan and time frame to assist you to achieve this.
