“Where a building becomes vacant as a result of the Covid-19 crisis, either voluntarily or because of statutory restriction, the occupier should make an application to their local authority for relief”

Andrew West talks about how an occupier can obtain business rates relief if their property is either fully or partially vacant.

The Leekes Retail and Leisure Group have substantial property assets within the group and have engaged Andrew West to appeal against rating assessments on these properties since 2010. We have consistently been impressed by Andrew's knowledge of the property market and his negotiating skills have been exceptional. Given Andrew's outstanding performance, we would not hesitate to recommend Andrew to any business large or small seeking to appeal their rates liabilities.
