Cooke & Arkwright and Acuity Law reviewed the latest developments and continually evolving legislative environment in the commercial property market and the issues relevant to real estate professionals in the current climate

In this webinar, Philip Angell and Andrew West from Cooke & Arkwright, together with the team from Acuity Law, discussed:

  • Real estate implication of the Coronavirus Act 2020 and Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill
  • Key lease provisions and how they are impacted, such as payment and performance obligations and defaults and remedies
  • Rent concessions
  • Business rates
  • Service charges
  • Construction

Mansford has expanded its investment portfolio over the last few years. Over this time Andrew West has provided us with a full rating valuation service which has involved giving a view on liabilities prior to acquisitions, as well as conducting negotiations with Valuation Officers on our UK estate. The portfolio includes a wide range of properties from shops, offices and pubs to major leisure schemes. He has been particularly successful in mitigating our liabilities to empty property rate, which has been an issue on acquisition prior to implementing our development and letting strategy. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew's expertise in rating valuation for all property types. The profile of property within his portfolio and the successes achieved are testament to his position as an extremely accomplished rating practitioner.
