Agency Acquisition & Disposal

All offices have a dedicated Agency department giving advice on a range of commercial property sectors. Our teams in Exeter, Plymouth and Truro are some of the most active commercial agents in the region having been recognised as the most active agents in Somerset, Devon & Cornwall and been awarded regional “Most Active Agents” awards by the Estates Gazette for the last ten successive years.

We offer advice on the acquisition and disposal, both freehold and leasehold, of all kinds of commercial property, ranging in size from some of the largest buildings, sites and development schemes in the region to some of the smallest. The three offices work closely together to make sure that all clients’ requirements are serviced throughout the region.

OFFICE SECTOR

We are arguably the most active agents in the Westcountry’s office sector. With a broad range of clients, including private investors, major funds and developers, we are willing and able to advise on the largest office developments and the smallest lettings. Our clients include Clinton Devon Estates, Eagle One, Duchy of Cornwall, Scottish & Southern Energy and several of the leading regional solicitors.

Our office agents are active across the region, not only in property sales and lettings but also in acquisitions, offering a property finding service as well as negotiation advice to purchasers and tenants. When property availability is at a low level, and rents and prices rise as a result, our acquisition service is particularly valuable, and our knowledge of local markets and key players allows us to identify off-market opportunities.

We are also experts in the niche market of rural offices, having advised on the conversion of several rural buildings to office use and assisted many rural landowners with the marketing and disposal of converted barns and other character rural offices.

INDUSTRIAL SECTOR

Our range of expertise across the industrial/warehouse sector in the South West is second to none, and we act for landlords, tenants, owner occupiers, vendors and purchasers across the region (within both the private and public sectors).

From initial input and advice through to the sale and letting of buildings, we also advise throughout the whole development process, building up long term business relationships in the process. A high profile example of this is our continuing involvement with the Mid Devon Business Park at Willand for various developers, owner occupiers and landlords.

Expert advice is also offered to companies seeking to relocate within or into the area, and recent commissions in this respect have included acting on behalf of Heaver Bros Transport in acquiring the freehold interest of the former Co-op premises at Broadclyst near Exeter (which also involved the surrender of the Co-op lease) and subsequently disposing of Heavers’ leasehold interest at Exeter Airport.

High profile clients include RGB Builders Merchants, Topps Tiles, Mercedes-Benz and Samworth Brothers.
