Having spent my property career on the occupier side, the absence of complete transparency (with Landlords passing on their ‘rechargeable’ costs) has been a constant challenge. I suspect it will remain so for the remainder of my career……….but progress is being made, by some.

In their latest insurance summaries, British Land clearly state their own retained commission & comparative premium rates payable. This promotes benchmarking and comparison as a means to driving costs down over a period of time. Always positively received by the occupiers

Why don’t others follow suit ? We can only be left to wonder.

So, you have to applaud British land for this demonstration of transparency.
