Commercial Landlord Advisory

As a national property consultancy, Carter Jonas is able to advise landlords right across the UK, operating in all sectors of commercial property. 

Our team operates out of five core commercial hubs – London, Cambridge, Oxford, Leeds and Bath – giving us a rare and advantageous mix of national coverage and local expertise. 

Open plan office

We act on behalf of a variety of clients, whose interests in commercial property range from office spaces to industrial parks.

Over the years, we have furthered our knowledge of many sectors, and this is evident in the quality of advice we give to landlords. Our expertise is based on a foundation of national knowledge and is applied in a highly personalised way to meet the specific objectives of each client.

Carter Jonas’s personal approach is evident in the time and effort we take to get to know a property and to understand the prevailing market conditions, as well as in the regular correspondence we have with landlords. Our success is built on the long-term approach we take to client relationships. 

When it comes to negotiating rent reviews and lease renewals, we know how to obtain the best possible terms. We apply our extensive market knowledge and resourcefulness to the negotiations, with the aim of benefitting both the landlord and tenant. 

We work hard to attract the right tenant, with a strong covenant, for every one of our clients’ properties. We take a tailored approach to the marketing of our commercial properties, searching for a suitable occupant for each one and delivering a stable income for the client. 

Every property is unique, so we can offer different options, break clauses and rent-free periods to find the right tenant for every unit. 

I was impressed by Carter Jonas’s approach, specifically the depth of clarifying answers, and effective use of face-to-face meetings and technology in order to fine-tune the case and test assumptions.
A robust financial and commercial business case was delivered that was very well received by our Executive Team, praised by our CEO and resulted in approval by our board for our preferred accommodation relocation option.” Andrew Evans, Estates and Facilities, CQC .
Always appreciate your clear thinking, responsiveness and valuable insight.

Three career highlights:
Over a career spanning nearly 30 years involving all forms of property from a nuclear bunker through to the vast majority of the County’s main business schemes, it is difficult to choose just three highlights; the following are certainly are worthy of note:

Letting acquisition, for SkyCaddie, at Haddenham: 
I have chosen this as we were presented with a challenging brief by our client but I was able to use my market knowledge to unearth an off market opportunity that we subsequently acquired on very favourable terms.

Sale of Foxcombe Hall, Oxford: It is not often you get to market a University Campus and, as such, our disposal of the former Open University Campus at Boars Hill has been a highlight, working alongside our residential team on this high profile instruction.

Letting instruction, The Quadrant, Abingdon Science Park: I am currently leading this letting instruction where we have enjoyed a considerable amount of early success. I have chosen this as a highlight however as we have been able to provide clear letting advice, implement our recommendations and see the results.
