Rowley Hughes Thompson is a specialist Retail Agency practice with offices in Birmingham and Bristol. From our two offices, we offer a specialist acquisition and disposal service throughout the United Kingdom for national/local retailers and landlords.
The practice acts in a retained and non-retained manner for many of the country’s major multiple and regional retailers offering specialist acquisition advice on the expansion of their business together with disposal advice on surplus assets.
On the acquisition side we assist expanding retailers with their freehold and leasehold requirements and offer a comprehensive service nationwide as follows:
- Identification of town/location requirement
- Town investigation
- Acquisition/appraisal/negotiation and ensuring legal formalities are completed in the timescales suitable for the client
With regard to leasehold and freehold disposals, Rowley Hughes Thompson provides advice to their clients regarding value and marketability. A comprehensive marketing strategy will be devised to suit the relevant circumstances for the premises and the client’s requirements. This includes, where appropriate, the erection of boards, the circulation of sales particulars to both local and national commercial agencies, dedicated mail shots to potential occupiers with requirements for the relevant location and property type, and electronic marketing via our own website and www.shopproperty.co.uk.
Rowley Hughes Thompson maintains an up-to-date computer database detailing retailer requirements throughout the UK to which potential disposals can be matched. Our partners can provide a fast and efficient disposal service including advice on assignee or sub-lease covenant strength where appropriate.
