Property asset management
We will optimise the value of your commercial property investment – from how efficiently the asset is used, to the level of profit it generates and how its future potential can be maximised.
Managing and mitigating outgoings is integral to maximising both your margin and long-term return on investment. As part of our property asset management approach, we examine all overheads related to your property and identify opportunities to reduce your expenditure. The costs we can assess and help to ease include business rates and property refurbishment.
Through the services below, we can deliver adjustments to your property and strategy that enhance the value of your assets.
Property management is so much more than ‘just collecting the rent’. Done right, it plays a pivotal role in enhancing the value of your investment.
KWB Property Management has been established for over 30 years and has developed an impressive portfolio. We offer a comprehensive range of services to ensure the maintenance and upkeep of your property, as well as the satisfaction of your tenants.
Business rates advice
Achieving the minimum rateable value, and rates payable, for your properties, whether vacant or occupied, is vital for your bottom line.
We can assess your property to achieve an accurate rates valuation. Furthermore, we can ensure that you receive any empty property business rates relief you might be eligible for. We also offer a business rates mitigation service to reduce your rates bill in certain situations.
Rent reviews and lease renewals
Rent review and lease renewal negotiations can be contentious and strain your relationship with your tenant. When looking to retain an occupier on the best possible lease terms, we can help you get the balance right.
We give sound, well-informed advice, based on up-to-date market values and our knowledge of the relevant legislation. We work closely with our agency team to deliver an impartial assessment of where you stand and can negotiate on your behalf.
Office design and fit-out
Condition, presentation, layout and facilities make a significant impact on a property’s value and the rent it can command. Along with our in-house interior design and move management consultancy, we can rebrand, reposition, reface, refurbish, refit and remarket your property.
KWB Workplace can remodel and transform existing workspace to improve the quality of space, increase revenue streams and optimise your investment.
We can provide you with commercial property valuations, conducted by our highly experienced and knowledgeable team of RICS Registered Valuers.
Our valuers draw upon our extensive in-house property intelligence and transaction data to provide informed and well-considered commercial property valuations.
Preparation and negotiation of dilapidations
By completing regular inspections on behalf of landlords, we ensure that tenants comply with their ongoing duty to maintain the property, keeping it in good repair and decoration. This work often begins with creating accurate schedules of condition that you can rely on.
Whether occurring at lease expiry or during mid-lease disposals, by monitoring tenants’ work, we make sure that their covenants and obligations are being met and that your commercial property investment is protected.
