Naylors were instructed to acquire 7,000 sq.ft of offices on behalf of specialist I.T business, KCS Datawright, who were relocating from Washington due to business expansion.
We reviewed the options available to our client and drew up a shortlist of 3 potential properties. We negotiated the rent and lease terms and helped to secure a very favourable rent and incentive package at Mayflower House on Team Valley, Gateshead. Once solicitors were instructed we helped guide the letting through the legal process to ensure a successful result. The Building Consultancy department assisted by carrying out a dilapidations survey and schedule of condition.
“Simon has been fantastic throughout the 6 month process in giving great advice and guidance and working tirelessly on our behalf to get the absolutely best deal for us as a business.
Please don’t under estimate the time that is required to navigate between landlord and client solicitors once the lease goes into the legal stage and without someone like Simon who understands the process and has the contacts in the industry to make the ‘cogs turn’ quicker. We also used Naylors to carry out a ‘schedule of condition’ on our selected property. Again, the level of customer service carried out on this project at very short notice was exceptional.
I would recommend anyone who is looking to acquire a 3/5/10 year lease on a property to speak to Naylors before deciding to navigate this ‘minefield’ on your own…it was definitely worth the investment for us!” Andy Gough, General Manager KCS Datawright
