Commercial Lettings

Sworders has an established and active commercial department dealing with a full range of premises from small, low key storage to high quality office and large scale industrial, warehouse and multi-use developments. We have a proven record of delivering an excellent service to both landlords and tenants.

Lettings

Sworders provides a full commercial letting service, from finding tenants to full property management. We specialise in rural property, although we do deal with all types of property including retail, industrial and office space.

The process to identify a tenant will vary with each property and we use a variety of marketing techniques to attract interest whilst also utilising existing databases.

A large number of rural lettings are the consequence of diversification projects and, whilst carrying out lettings, we can draw on the expertise of our planning team to explore the opportunities for each site. It is important to remain flexible within the letting process to achieve the best rental outcome.

Pre Let agreements can also be helpful when considering a new site prior to planning or construction. These agreements allow the landlord and tenant to secure a deal if timing does not fit in with their current situation.

Property Appraisal and Adding Value

When assessing a property for letting, we will always consider opportunities to add value and work closely with our planning and architectural team to maximise potential. It is often possible to improve the value of a property prior to a letting. This can be through planning, re-design and general improvements to the property. The Sworders team work closely together, drawing on the experience and expertise of the relevant professional to achieve the best results.

Marketing

For every property a marketing strategy is required and we take a proactive approach, going far beyond merely adding the property to website portals. Our lettings strategy using high quality particulars, bespoke advertisements and direct marketing ensure that clients can be certain that their property will be exposed fully to the market.

Our advice is tailored to each property but is likely to include;

  • Marketing strategy
  • Presentation of property
  • Rental valuation
  • Direct marketing
  • Property particulars
  • Tenant profile

Renting a Property

We can provide assistance and advice to clients who wish to find new premises. We will negotiate the terms of an agreement on behalf of the tenants and, later on in the letting, will carry out rent review negotiations.
