    Advertising premises idea

    I have a retail premises to let, in the interests of widening the buildings appeal to prospective tenants I've obtained planning permission for A5 (hot food). I now want to advertise the property.

    I've put up a large 'To Let' illuminated banner on the shop sign, detailing the planning permission granted.

    I've had a rather unpleasant experience of my local dedicated commercial agent and would rather avoid using them.

    Can anyone suggest places I might advertise?

    I have a website doing nothing at the moment, I was thinking of putting a couple of pages online with a selection of phrases that would be easily found by search engine. Any thoughts?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Rightmove?

    There are people who will advertise your property on Rightmove for a one-off fee and forward any Leeds they get?

      Sorry, they can't have Leeds! It belongs in Yorkshire.

          Rightmove only accept advertising for UK properties from their agents. Thanks for your suggestion though!

            There is agents that will advertise your property for you on rightmove.

            I did it for an office we had, think it cost around £40.00 for the month, I will try and look for the invoice and get the company name and put it up.

              The problem with companies that advertise private landlords properties on Rightmove is that most of them do so by breaching Rightmoves T&Cs. When rightmove discover their first action may be to terminate the agencys agreement, which won't do much for that company. May I suggest you PM John J if you find the company name?

                I will indeed,

                Sorry I did not know it was against Rightmove T&C.

                  Just because you have had a bad experience with a local commercial agent dosent mean that they are all the same. I have used Commercial Agents twice. The last time was when I asked a well known "National" Agent for a valuation and was quite surprised at how high they put the figure. OK I had to part with money up front and they took a commission, but the premises appeared every week in Daltons Weekly. The place was eventually rented to someone in the same line of business who wanted larger premises. But had I tried marketing the place myself I would not have received so much interest or such a high price.

                    I'm in the process of buying an existing business (estate agency) and I've negotiated a new lease with the owner of the shop premises.

                    I've read through it in detail and, whilst my property experience is not in the commercial industry, I'm happy with the terms and there doesn't look to...

                    Key things to watch out for in a commercial lease (and which could affect the success of your business) are as follows:

                    1. Whether the lease is inside or outside Sections 24-28 of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954
                    2. Whether the rent review intervals are fair
                    3. Whether the...

                    Hi

                    I took on a 15 year lease on an empty unit at £20000 pa +vat since 2011, and its not been the best of experiences!

                    Amongst the experiences was when we decided to sell the business back in June 2015, we asked the landlord via solicitor for permission to assign the business...

                    Get an electrician to check how the meters are wired.

                    There are three posibilities.
                    1. The meters are seperate supplies, one for the shop, one for the flat. (Unlikely if you only have one bill and it's increased like you say).
                    2. There is one main meter and a sub-meter for the flat or shop.

                    It's been some time since the electrics, gas and fire safety have been inspected at a commercial property, can anyone advise on the best way of getting these done and paid for by the tenant?

                    Lease has terms making tenant responsible for ensuring premises meet legislation.

                    Thanks for the replies.

                    A letter to tenant pointing out where in lease the responsibility is outlined along with details of what is expected from the checks did the trick.

                    Now to chase up on documentation as tenant says everything is complete....

                    As above -- fairness has nothing at all to do with it. You purchased a lease. The lease contained certain clauses. The price for purchase of the lease was (or should have been) a reflection of what it was you purchased.

                    If the lease says all flats pay for maintenance of a lift or the roof,...
