Service Charge

The auditing and management of service charge liabilities faced by occupiers of commercial property requires a range of technical skills and expertise that can only be offered through a team of experts.  Our team comprises specialists from a range of backgrounds including property accounts, surveying and procurement.  This means we have the skill set to address any challenges that arise in this specialist field.

We offer the full range of services from pre-contract advice, when signing up to a new lease, through to negotiations at the end of the term.  That can either be in the form of a short term auditing exercise or a longer term portfolio wide management instruction.

We improve the management of your outgoings at the same time as securing significant, often annually recurring, savings.
