As long standing Managing Agents for the Landlord of industrial warehouse premises at Astonfields, Stafford, Robertson have a proven track record for estate management. The estate comprises two single storey terraces, providing a range of unit sizes suitable for a variety of uses, all with forecourts for loading and parking.
Original leases were for 24 year terms giving tenants security of long term occupation, but with the flexibility for tenants to break every three years upon review dates. The leases have provision for the Landlord to manage the estate through a service charge, insure the premises, carry out repairs and maintenance, collect rents and to recover Robertson’s managing agent’s fees.
A close relationship is fostered with all the tenants, addressing day to day concerns and management issues and seeking to accommodate tenant’s ongoing business requirements. Liaison with the Landlord is maintained by quarterly updates and statements, summarising rents, insurances, expenditures throughout the fiscal year.
Where premises become vacant, Robertson’s agency services offer the units to let on the open market to secure suitable tenants who fit with existing businesses on acceptable lease terms. The strategy is to maintain market rents and rental income for the Landlord and to preserve the integrity of the Landlord’s investment.
