about us what we do

Our core business areas are commercial property management, leasehold advisory work including rent reviews and lease renewals, property investment advice together with expert commercial and residential valuation.

Commercial Valuation

The ability to appraise a property's worth - whether on a capital or rental basis - is fundamental to almost every aspect of our work. We have several years experience in the North East property market having witnessed the slowdown in the early 1990's and observing massive changes through regeneration of key areas.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)

In April 2018 Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) were introduced to UK legislation making it illegal for a landlord to let a property until it meets a minimum level of energy efficient; an E rating.

Investment

Our investment department, led by Daniel Capobasso has a proven track record of analysing, acquiring and disposing of commercial property investments for institutional clients, property companies and private investors throughout the UK with particular emphasis on the North East of England.

Sales and Lettings

To Johnson Tucker, an agency disposal instruction is regarded as far more than simply putting a board on a property and agreeing an advertising budget and campaign. We take a proactive approach to marketing, ensuring all along that the costs are in line with the result.

Residential Valuation

Residential property touches everyone - whether as house owner, investor or tenant and for many is their single most valuable asset. Knowing how much a residential property is worth is not quite as simple as many would think - particularly in a volatile market.

“Daniel at Johnson Tucker is the best agent I have ever worked with. He assisted me with both a lease renegotiation and sale of a property, going above and beyond for his client throughout the entire process. I would recommend Daniel and Johnson Tucker to anyone looking for commercial property services.”

Adam Kershaw – August 2019

“Good Morning Dan,

A few words of thanks for your professionalism and a job well done.

Sue and I would like to offer our sincere thanks for your efforts over the past 3 months with the sale of 24 Ridley Place, Newcastle. You have offered great support, paid attention to detail, plus doing a great job of liaising with all parties involved. Your efforts have been instrumental in the successful sale of this property.  The assurance that a brief text message can give that  ’ all is progressing well’  counts for a great deal.”

Sue & John Roberts – May 2018

As a solicitor setting up a new practice I needed advice on finding premises. Andrew Tucker has guided me all the way though the process. In particular, knowledge and practical understanding of leases and the options has been vital in securing premises on terms suitable for my business. I now know that identifying the premises and agreeing the rent is only a small part of what is involved.

Sharon Langridge | Sharon Langridge Solicitor

I have worked with Andrew Tucker and Gary Robinson for over 7 years. They have managed properties for us and dealt with landlord and tenant matters on our behalf.  I have always been impressed by their hands on management style, accessibility, speed of response and knowedge of their patch.

Charles Wordie | Wordie Properties Ltd

Johnson Tucker was recommended to me by my roofing contractor when I unexpectedly found myself with empty retail properties on my hands. Gary Robinson helped me deal with all issues surrounding owning empty properties and made sure my insurer’s requirements were covered. Now that the properties are let I have instructed Gary to deal with the day to day management. It is not a big job but I know that when I am out of the country there is someone I can rely on to deal with any problems.

Fred Fagg | J T Clough & Son Ltd

We have been working with David Johnson for almost 20 years. With David’s help we have built up a substantial property portfolio including nursing homes, amusement arcades, public houses, a backpackers’ hostel and pure investments. In one week we secured two prime retail investments in central Newcastle costing over £8m.

“David has helped us add value to properties and encouraged us to enter areas of business where we previously had almost no experience. He has always found time to explain the complexities of a lease or title issues. Of course we work with other agents but I can honestly say that we have never purchased a commercial property without David’s blessing.”

Meenu & Bunty Malhotra | DAV Developments Ltd

Andrew Tucker is more than a surveyor – he has the ability to put himself in the mindset of the client and understand the objectives of the business and where property fits into the process. He also has a decent knowledge of property law, leases and property taxation including the intricacies of VAT.
