Two new shareholders strengthen our London Office

We are pleased to announce that we have recently appointed two new shareholding partners. Ian Vivian and Paul Moody, both based in our London office, have become shareholders, bringing our total number of shareholders across our offices to 26. Ian Vivian, head of valuation in our London office, joined the firm two years ago, having previously worked as a Senior Executive within the Real Estate Valuation team at Ernst & Young. Ian specialises in property valuations, predominantly for loan security purposes, on commercial and residential properties in London and the South East.


Considerable growth in food and beverage pop-up stores

A pop-up store works on the principle of ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ with the stores tending to open on short leases in otherwise underused spaces. Originally the nature of these stores appealed to smaller more independent brands that were able to offer a unique retail experience to their consumers.

London based businesses expected to face a large increase in rateable values

  Increasing rents and property prices are a constant challenge for London based businesses, and things look set to get even tougher with a sharp rise in business rates following the April 2017 revaluation. It’s likely that the revaluation next year will cause big increases for London based businesses, who could be faced with their rateable values rising by up to 100%, making some properties unsustainable, and leaving businesses with shrinking profit margins.   Why such a big increase? The government conducts a revaluation, normally every 5 years, to adjust the value of business rates and ensure they reflect the current property market. The controversial delays to the 2015 revaluation mean that current rateable values are significantly detached from real market conditions. With the property market booming in London, and rents on the increase, the majority of London businesses are currently paying business rates at a far lower rate than market value.   What should I do to prepare? The process of the 2017 revaluation has already started, with the VOA gathering evidence from ratepayers to determine the new values. With big changes expected by the introduction of a new appeal system called ‘Check, Challenge, Appeal’, which is likely to make it more difficult for ratepayers to appeal their bill, it’s important to speak to a professional. Our industry leading Rating team can help you plan for April 2017, understand options for rates relief that may apply to your business, and examine your options of appeal.   Please contact Matthew Midwinter for more information.
