Our national coverage is enhanced by long-established working relationships with two consultants working beyond the northern property market that is our primary focus; Rob Stollery works with BHT from his base in Derbyshire and Clive Thomas covers much of what we do in London and the South.

We aim to deliver a professional, high quality and proactive approach based on the provision of a tailored service, always looking to build long-term relationships and win repeat business. This approach has allowed us to establish a diverse client base that includes businesses such as Skipton Building Society, HSBC, Rayner & Keeler, Handelsbanken, Threadneedle and Commercial Estates Group.

As a firm of professional property surveyors, BHT is regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). We are also members of PAI, the industry association for smaller commercial property practices in the UK.

Impact of Covid-19 on Property Management

Since the outbreak of Covid-19, BHT along with the other member firms of the PAI network of independent surveying firms across the UK have been comparing their experiences in their property management departments. With the March Quarter day falling at the start of the lockdown, it is unsurprising that rent collection has become more challenging in recent weeks. The data that has been collected from across the PAI network is helping us to understand how the UK property market has reacted and continues to behave in these unprecedented times. The statistics have been shared with various members of the property profession from British Property Federation and Civil Servants to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government who are tasked by the Government to understand the impact of corona virus on the commercial property sector.

Industrial Investment Acquisition York

On behalf of a private SIPP investor, we acquired 9-20 Alan Farnaby Way, Sheriff Hutton Industrial Estate, York, YO60 6PG, a detached freehold warehouse extending to 566 sq.m (6,088 sq.ft) for £505,000. Simultaneously with the acquisition of the freehold, Solinear Ltd entered a new 10 year FRI lease with a break at the 5th year at a rent of £40,000 pax which equates to £6.50 psf. McBeath Property Consultancy Ltd acted for the vendor and introduced the tenant Solinear. David Brackenridge commented this was an excellent deal for all parties, our client wanted to secure an investment opportunity. The owner just wanted to sell and Solinear who were already on the estate wanted to expand into a larger unit.
