Maintaining close control of business costs is an important role for all business owners. Unfortunately, many find themselves too busy with the daily pressures of running a business to take time out to plan their future occupational needs and consequently fail to identify opportunities to reduce occupational costs.

Martin will highlight the four main components that influence total occupancy costs – concentrating on break options and lease expires.

Having acted on behalf of both landlords and tenants for many years, Martin will share with you his insight into the landlord’s decision making process to maximise occupancy levels, rental income and capital values. Understanding how the landlord manages his property portfolio will greatly improve your ability to secure the best possible occupational savings.
