This service is for occupiers who have potentially found what they believe could be their ideal office space, but wish to have guidance on the deal they have been offered, a professional opinion on the suitability of the space and require project management assistance with their office move.
Our team of office agents will advise on the terms of the deal, clarifying whether the occupier is getting a good deal or not or if it can be improved upon. We will carry out further negotiation with the landlord or their agents whenever necessary. It is sometimes the case that we will advise that the space is not suitable and suggest alternative premises would be better for your business.
Our building surveyors will inspect the premises, advising of any significant faults with the accommodation or the M & E, identifying where specialist advice might be required. Our building surveyors will also produce detailed schedules of condition ensuring you are well covered in the event of any reinstatement or dilapidations disputes.
Another key element of any office move is the fit out. Fit out costs can be substantial, but when carried out effectively a good fit out can improve the wellbeing and efficiency of your staff greatly. It is also an opportunity to reinforce or establish your company brand and identity. We will assist you in the tendering process of selecting the best fit out contractor for your business, ensuring the contractor you choose fully understands your company identity and goals, while being cost effective.
In many cases, you will have liabilities to your previous landlord in the form of dilapidations. Our trained professionals will review your old lease, any schedules of condition (if available) and any licenses, providing you with preliminary advice to the extent of your repair or reinstatement liabilities. We will then negotiate your liabilities to ensure your costs are fair.
