Many SME owners have negotiated their own leases. You would naturally focus on the rent, but what about flexibility? fixed costs? control over rent reviews? exit strategies etc? The ways all of these factors interlink is complex and needs explaining by an expert who has the experience to relate them to your business dynamics. hillier associates pride ourselves on fully educating and briefing you so that you have the information & understanding to make the right decisions to support your business strategy.
Nearly every single business owner that I have spoken to after they have signed their lease have bemoaned the fact that they did not use our services. They had no idea that so much could be achieved to help their business in the future. Please feel free to contact us for a chat about your business and gain an insight into some of the many issues you should consider - 01444 455566 (ask for Stephen Hillier)
We know that the first class service that we provide to our customers has saved their companies many £000’s over the course of their tenancies and most of our clients would testify that our work saved them over 10 times the value of our fees (which anyway tend to be lower than most because of our efficiency).
Other companies use other agents and there are many well-educated and professional ones in the UK. However, most of their training, mindset and fee income is through their landlord/investor clients. They are not used to thinking from YOUR perspective.
