Surveyors and Property Consultants

Overview

As an asset class commercial property is a very significant factor of production and wealth creator within the UK economy.  For businesses the occupation of property invariably underpins all aspects of their commercial activities, whilst for owners, property provides an investment vehicle delivering capital appreciation and income return.

 

The management of the inter-relationship between business occupier and investment owner is critical to success.  The relationship is governed by the contract, that being the lease, but this is overlaid with extensive legislation and judicial interpretation.

 

Keppie Massie is experienced in all aspects of the complex field of lease consultancy.  We are able to identify market facing, commercial solutions and so provide pragmatic and effective advice.

Landlord & Tenant


Occupier - Tenant

 

The maximisation of the utility of occupation from property is critical to a business occupier’s success.  Having its property interests in alignment to core business requirements and ensuring that timing is optimised and cost minimised are of central importance.

 

Careful consideration is needed to be given to the basis of occupancy, the lease; before the lease is first commissioned; during the period of occupation, the term; and ultimately upon the expiry of the lease.

Investor - Landlord

 

Investment performance, through capital appreciation and rental growth, and indeed any other objectives, is central to a property owner's requirements. Effective management and maximisation of the property asset through its leasehold structure is therefore of critical importance to investors.   Lease terms need to be strategically considered and appropriately implemented both at the outset and during the term, changing tenant requirements need to be responded to and at lease expiry pre-emptive or reactive action will be required.
