You can fill out the form at the top of this page to arrange a free valuation quickly and efficiently giving you the answer to the question “how much is my property worth?”.

Once formally instructed, we will agree a targeted marketing strategy with you. We’ll also discuss any necessary bespoke marketing including professional photography, floorplans and virtual tours.
High quality interactive particulars are prepared and uploaded to our website along with other specialist portals. Details are circulated throughout our database of 15,000+ professional contacts and active purchasers/tenants in the area are personally contacted by our team.
We accompany potential buyers/tenants around your property by appointment only. After every viewing, we relay their feedback to you – an essential part of the process.
We will inform you of all offers, both verbally and in writing, along with our recommendations.
Once an offer is accepted, we liaise with solicitors from both parties, to progress the sale/lease towards an exchange of contracts.

Most UK commercial properties have their use defined by a local authority that has jurisdiction over them. This allows local town and country planners to ensure that their plans for a property or an area can actually happen.
Our class order guide will show you which is the correct one for your business. Some landlords will consider an offer subject to a change of use, but uses such as A3, A4 & A5 often prove contentious. If you are looking to open a restaurant, bar or takeaway you would be well-advised to look for a property with the requisite use already in place.

Our Commercial & Development Division was established in 1999, and does exactly as the name suggests. We only handle commercial and development transactions (plus plenty of investment deals). We don’t sell residential property – we have 39 residential branches for that! We’re an entirely transactional business, so we only get paid when a deal gets done. We don’t list properties for fun, and will only take instructions that we’re very confident we can sell. Call us on 020 7089 6555 (London) or 020 8315 5454 (Kent) – we’ll happily tell you if we’re the right firm to appoint, and if we’re not, we’ll recommend someone else.
