    Commercial property OMV or index?

    I am a director of an SME that has been running now for 3.5 years. We are coming to the end of the 4-year lease for our commercial property and are about to enter into a new lease agreement. I strongly suspect (but don't know) that the OMV for the property would have dropped in the last 4 years, so we are hoping to negotiate a rent reduction. I would ideally like to get some data on commercial property OMV over the last 4 years - can anyone point me towards any kind of data or perhaps know of a price "index"?
    Thanks in advance, John.

    Open market value is individual to the circumstances of the specific building, use, location, configuration etc. Thus there is no hard and fast rate which you need to apply. Previous rental transactional analysis will give an indication for similar propert in similar locations but ultimately may not come up with the right answer.

    I would recommend instructing a decent surveyor to act on your behalf at the lease renewal.

      The property is in a parade of shops in a former village community on the outskirts of town in a small parade of shops. Most are long established local businesses - ours in a hairdresser where the T has been there...

      Is there a market for 1 beds in the village, you could convert and sell the flat leasehold, this could give you a lump sum up front. But if your looking at BTLs and there is a strong chance of letting the Upper for 4K + pa you won’t get a better yield than the conversion cost....

    • garage lease
      Hi All,

      What is the average ball park figure for a lease length for a garage in London. it has its own title deed. If the lease is around 20 years remaining. is it as simple as applying for a lease extension , or can the freeholder withhold?

      thank you

      After the lease ends the freeholder may not wish to extend it and if so it will become their property? if for arguments sake the lease is 20 years remaining (unsure what the average is for a garage) and I have yet to purchase the garage, is it best to agree on extension before purchase?

      You have no statutory rights here at all (it is not a residential property). So it is matter of asking for a price and agreeing that, if you get agreement, otherwise there is nil you can do. In 20 years it will case to be your lease controlled garage....

      I am an investor in a gym operating out of a former warehouse unit in an industrial area. The unit next to us (owned by same LL) is becoming vacant, and I am checking out the risk of future noise complaints.

      I'm not concerned, but unfortunately other people are. And if I have a good answer to the questions I can head them off at the pass !...

      I wouldn't concern myself. If someone rents a place next to a gym, they would surely notice it when they viewed.
