Create value across your entire leasehold property portfolio with Strategic Lease Management
Rising rents and business rates continue to be a huge challenge for commercial property tenants in London and throughout the UK. These challenges have a negative impact on the profitability of a business and in many cases are forcing occupiers to close down their operations. At Cedar Dean we believe the key to delivering savings and realising value on real estate is through a strategic approach to a company's operational real estate portfolio.
To date, at Cedar Dean, we have saved our clients over £500 million in leasehold liabilities with our innovative, proactive approach to lease restructuring. Renegotiating leases with landlords, months or even years before they are due, has enabled us to generate significant savings and add value across an entire property portfolio.
Our team of corporate and property advisors consider each site and business from a corporate perspective and work together to restructure your property portfolio in accordance with our client’s operational requirements, protecting their long term goals and visions.
For many of the businesses we work with, property costs are their largest expense. As such, it is vital that an organisation strategically reviews its leasehold portfolio in order to not only extract best value, but also ensure that each lease is attractive in terms of lease length, rents and ensuring that all other potentially onerous lease terms are avoided. An attractive leasehold portfolio helps drive long term shareholder value and secure increased valuations in M&A transactions.
With our team of experts, we can offer a multi-site business the opportunity to outsource the day-to-day management of a leasehold property portfolio, granting our clients more time to focus on operating a successful business and allowing us to work on creating value across a property portfolio that not only could generate savings, but also significantly increase the valuation of your business.
