Property Acquisitions

Whether an investor is considering an investment purchase, or a business occupier weighing up the pros and cons of freehold purchase, we are able to take an overview of geographical and industry trends to provide clients with the best available property opportunities and achieve the best deal for the client’s business.

Investment expert Daniel Capobasso will advise on suitable purchase opportunities and how to achieve a sensible balance to a portfolio. We make sure that we understand the client’s business requirements and ensure that they thoroughly consider all options. We can carry out a review of the client’s existing portfolio and consider important issues such as demographics and labour supply.

Following agreement of the acquisition strategy we carry out targeted search of properties both on and off the market, negotiate transactions considering whether there is mutual benefit to restructure leases.

Our most recently completed sales and acquisitions can also be found in our NEWS page.

Andrew is an experienced landlord and tenant surveyor carrying out Rent Reviews and Lease Renewal work for major clients, including ATS, BSS, Co-Operative Group, Ernst & Young, Grainger Plc, Greggs Plc, HSS, NCP and Laing O’Rourke.

He regularly prepares loan security valuations for most major banks and lending institutions. This includes both residential and commercial properties from individual units to portfolios.

He also has residential investment expertise gained from working at Grainger Plc as well as advising clients in the social housing sector.
