We appoint trusted professionals to include solicitors, surveyors, architects and structural engineers to act on your behalf and work with them to implement bespoke strategies to preserve and enhance net income and capital value and liaise with lenders as required.
If matters are not proceeding smoothly, we will aim to reach a compromise between parties, arrange dispute resolution processes if necessary and as a last resort, oversee litigation.
We use our own expertise and sensitivity to achieve the best results possible for your assets and carefully consider hidden opportunities and follow them through to completion.
We negotiate the strongest terms in light of the wider market to best enhance your interests.
We pride ourselves on fully realising the potential of each or our client’s assets. We will manage the process and leasing strategies to ensure maximum rental income and suitable tenant mix are achieved to complement the holding.
We will protect our client’s interests throughout the process, negotiating suitable terms either directly or through appointed agents that will enhance value in light of the wider market. We also deal with lease end processes whilst keeping our clients informed throughout.
We are equipped to oversee the process of arranging court proceedings in respect of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 with expert third party partners whilst maintaining a professional approach at all times.
The Keel Group has expert knowledge and track record in negotiating on behalf of investors and occupiers alike either directly or through appointed agents.
We offer technical expertise and guidance across all aspects of leases in commercial and retail property, identifying income-enhancing opportunities to include:
- New leases
- Rent reviews
- Lease renewals
- Interim rents
- Occupational review
We balance local market dynamics with individual client priorities so that informed decisions can be made to reach the enhanced values whilst minimising risk.
We provide advice on investment across the full spectrum of commercial property in the UK with a secondary focus on residential opportunities, assisting clients to build robust balanced portfolios and creating specialist strategies for higher return.
Our approach utilises the skills and expertise of market leaders to assist in making informed decisions to meet your investment and disposal requirements.
Our advice is based on a balance of astute commercial and technical knowledge facilitating decision making founded on market intelligence substantiated by analytics, data and most importantly market sensitivity and experience.
