Our clients range from single property owners to charities to national property investment firms. Our experience across a wide range of sectors ensures that we are well placed to provide excellent and timely advice on many matters relating to all types of commercial property including stand alone shops, shopping centres, industrial estates, offices, public houses and residential flats.

We offer the following principle services:

 

Agency

Our extensive local knowledge and experience means we are able to effectively market all types of commercial property, including retail, industrial and office property.

Acquiring commercial premises for your business either by renting or buying a premises can be extremely daunting. Swan Property Consultants provide a comprehensive acquisition service, whereby we will actively source premises which suit your specific requirements. Whether acting for a Landlord or an Occupier, we will ensure that the best market terms available are achieved.

Whether you’re looking to buy, rent, lease, invest or develop, no matter how large or small your requirement we would be delighted to assist.

 

Investment

Having established links with a large number of high net worth individuals and larger corporate companies active in the field of commercial investment, we are able to act for clients in both acquisitions and disposals of commercial freeholds and long leaseholds. We can ascertain the best approach when acquiring assets and can advise on how to maximise returns based on your requirements.

 

Lease Advisory & Asset Management

Whether you are a property Investor or Occupier, the terms of your lease agreement will have an impact on your business. In-depth technical and market knowledge is key to make the most of your lease agreement to fulfil your investment or occupational requirements.

We take a very hands on approach when looking at your portfolio and determine whether you should do nothing, extend or break leases, undertake improved marketing campaigns on vacant space or find development angles to improve your long term capital value – we will ensure that every angle is covered.

We understand the importance to you of maximising the value and income of your commercial property assets – at times these can provide opportunities to renegotiate the rent or other terms and only offer a small window of opportunity in which to effect any changes. Therefore, having the right advice before entering into negotiations is paramount.

Also, at the lease end, there are many covenants within the lease that would need to be adhered to, i.e. the preparation of schedules of dilapidation and wants of repair.
