We will also provide advice on de-risking and future proofing the occupation of our clients’ premises through business rates tax planning; service charge, property maintenance & management expenditure audits and budgeting for reinstatement and dilapidations costs at lease exit. In this way our clients’ can benefit from ‘trusted advice’ over the entirety of their lease life-cycle.”
