Commercial Landlord Services & Fees

We are specialists in the letting of commercial property across Liverpool and the surrounding areas. We have been active in the property market since 1965 and have gained a wealth of experience which enables us to provide expert advice to our landlords and tenants. We are known for our unbeatable pricing and award winning customer service and the majority of our business originates from friends and family of previous clients. We believe we possess the knowledge and expertise required to quickly and efficiently find a tenant for your property and maximise its return.

For simplicity, we offer two main services to landlords; a letting only service and a full management service. Depending on the size and diversity of your portfolio, we may be able to work with you to create a bespoke service. Depending on the nature of your property/site, our management fees may be recoverable from your tenant(s) by the way of a service charge.
