At Vickery Holman agency is more than just buying, selling or letting commercial property. It is about brokerage or ‘making deals happen’. Getting the right result whether optimising returns for owners or minimising costs for occupiers.
Each of Vickery Holman offices has a dedicated Agency team including at least one Senior Surveyor and assistants advising on a range of commercial property.
An understanding of property law is a necessity in order to ensure appropriate action is taken at the prudent time. With 12 Building Surveyors Vickery Holman enables each to concentrate on particular areas of specialism. Specialism permits continual awareness of changes in legislation and provides a depth of knowledge unrivalled, in particular areas of expertise, within the South West.
Vickery Holman offers extensive experience for the repair and maintenance of commercial properties such as cyclical repair and maintenance, external repair and redecoration, specific repair of defects and replacement of time expired elements (roof coverings etc). As well as commercial implications for this service Vickery Holman have an intimate knowledge for the provision of repairs in occupied buildings for both commercial clients, such as the Royal Mail, and educational clients, such as the Plymouth College of Further Education, Falmouth College of Art and over 30 schools within the Plymouth Diocese in addition to other state and private schools.
A full range of services are provided locally with company wide specialist support given, as required by individual instruction and circumstance.
The Building Surveyors provide a personal, and flexible service of detailed and specialist advice. The combined team strength can be utilised to target large commissions, in a short period of time and in an economic and consistent manner.
We recognise the importance of maintaining the landlord / tenant relationship, while achieving the best commercial settlement terms for the parties.
Within Vickery Holman Property Management, we pride ourselves on providing a dedicated niche service. Whilst able to deal with a whole lot more, we have concentrated on Property Management. We have access to all the expertise required but by focusing on one subject the service we provide is not diluted.
Valuation is a core function that underpins all property transactions and ownership. Vickery Holman have a dedicated team of RICS Registered Valuers in each office who provide valuation advice on a wide array of properties for a variety of purposes.
Despite recent pressure on the government to reconsider the impact of the 2017 revaluation, last minute measures announced in the budget will do little to alleviate the business rates burden for the revaluation in April, reports Nicola Murrish, Head of Rating at Vickery Holman Property Consultants.
Three key measures were announced last week;1. Businesses coming out of Small Business Rates Relief will not see an increase of more than £50 per month2. Pubs with an Rateable Value (RV) below £100,000 will receive £1,000 relief for the 2017/18 year only3. A £330m fund for councils will be available to offer discretionary relief
None of the measures announced offered help to businesses whose RV’s are reducing but as a result of Transitional relief will not immediately benefit from this. For example a property with a Rateable Value below £20,000 will only see their rates bill reduce by a maximum of 20% from April.
Mr Hammond did mention plans to consult again on more frequent revaluations however we are unlikely to see any change earlier than 2022.
With a number of recent high profile rating court cases as well as the new list going live in April with a more complicated and demanding appeal system the Valuation Office Agency have a very busy time ahead of them!
