We are confident that instructing us to acquire new or additional premises will result in significant savings for your business.
For both landlord and tenant, the end of a lease provides an opportunity to consider their next move. This is an area of property that requires expert advice. From a landlords perspective; the terms of the lease are a determining factor in the value of the asset and will also affect the potential to implement asset management strategies. From a tenants perspective; lease terms will influence the flexibility of the business to grow or downsize accordingly.
Most leases will allow for rent reviews at agreed intervals throughout the duration of the lease. Cousins West act for both landlords and tenants in negotiating the market rent. By constantly monitoring market activity we are able to offer our clients expert advice on rental levels and lease terms to ensure the most advantageous outcome.
Investment and Asset Management
We advise our clients on all aspects of investment and asset management and are able to identify properties offered on the open market as well as off market opportunities. We also advise on the restructuring of investment portfolios or value adding initiatives for individual assets particularly in larger multi-tenanted investments.
Our clients include private investors, family trusts, larger property companies and funds. Our extensive activity and research in the area provides us with a comprehensive database of rents, yields and capital values, enabling us to provide a detailed analysis of every investment for our clients.
Corporate Property Consultancy
For most organisations, large and small, property is secondary to the core business and employing an in house expert cannot be financially justified. However, property usually makes up a large part of a company’s annual expenditure or assets on their balance sheet.
Over time these property assets, or liabilities, need to be managed effectively as they can make a dramatic difference to the operation and profitability of the business. Cousins West have numerous retained clients who benefit from in depth industry knowledge and advice on the on-going strategic management of their portfolio.
