The last few months have had to see us adapt to new working patterns and routines, but during that time we have continued to work hard for our clients across a wide variety of commercial property instructions. Having spent the majority of the last four months working from home our focus now is to spend the majority of our time working from the office. We will still work from home where appropriate, but by embracing technology it will feel like we are all under one roof. We have digested the Government guidance and the advice issued by RICS and are confident that our offices are Covid Secure and that we can work safely both in the office and whilst out on property inspections and viewings with potential occupiers. Don’t expect us to shake hands and we will be keeping a safe distance. It is apparent that there is increased activity in all market areas and our enquiries from occupiers and investors are pretty much back to the levels we were experiencing pre-lockdown. Requests for secured lending valuations are steadily increasing along with the usual array of consultancy work. A lot of time has been spent working with our landlord clients and their tenants ensuring timely rent payments during the period of lockdown and where tenants were unable to pay rent we have liaised with them to understand the issues their businesses faced and have agreed appropriate repayment plans that are sustainable for the tenant and also enabling the landlord to meet their financial commitments. Highlights of the last few months include:-

• Lettings of two shops on Sea View Street in Cleethorpes.

• Sale of industrial / warehouse investment on Kiln Lane Industrial Estate, Stallingborough.

• Sale of residential development land in Barton upon Humber

• Sale of industrial unit on Wiltshire Road in Hull.

• Sale of former Immingham Police Station.

• Industrial property with redevelopment potential brought to the market on Cleveland Street in Hull.

We’re currently working on two investment opportunities which will be brought to the market over the course of the next few days.
