Commercial Occupiers

Saving time, money and stress for commercial occupiers.

Making long-term decisions about premises is particularly challenging for business owners right now. At JK we use our in-depth knowledge of the marketplace, our detailed understanding of legislation and our expert negotiation skills to get the best deals possible for your business.

Finding the perfect property

Whatever sector your business, moving premises can cause major disruption to your people and your profits. At JK, we use our market knowledge and extensive network to find you the perfect property in the right location – and to negotiate a deal within your timescales and budget. Whether you’re looking to buy or lease locally or in a new location, instructing JK will save you time, money and stress, and enable you to focus on running your business.

Disposal of leaseholds

If you need to dispose of leasehold interests, we can access our extensive database of industry contacts to identify opportunities and guide you swiftly through the disposal process. Should disagreements arise, we are highly experienced in managing complex negotiations and guiding all parties towards a swift and amicable resolution.

Lease renewals

The details within a lease agreement can cost your business almost as much as the headline rent. At JK, we work hard to negotiate the best possible terms to suit your business plan, saving you time, money and stress. Our team has a wealth of market experience that enables us to give high-quality advice whether you lease a portfolio of properties across the country or operate from a single shop or office.

Rent reviews

Traditionally, rent reviews have been viewed as a way for landlords to raise the rental costs, but this need not be the case. We have helped many clients make frequent, proactive rent negotiations that have seen rents re-set at realistic market levels. If your rent review is imminent, we can provide professional representation through this often technical process and, where a settlement cannot be agreed upon, we can also provide representation in court.

Becoming your own landlord

Whether you want to buy your property as a means of tax and pension planning, or you want to sell and lease back the commercial property you occupy, we can provide impartial advice and help you make the right decision for you and your business. Working closely with you and your accountant, we can support your search for a new property, negotiate a purchase price with your existing landlord, and manage negotiations throughout to ensure you get the best deal possible.
