RETAIL SERVICES

We understand that location plays a huge role in the success of a retail operation. Our advisors remain intimately involved, providing seamless attention throughout the process and ensuring that each client is satisfied with the result. We recognize that one-size does not fit all, and so we tailor our services to suit your requirements.

Retailer Advisory Services Include:

  • Strategic store planning and retail roll out strategy
  • Identifying and sourcing retail sites
  • Appointed market tours
  • Reviews and reporting of toured areas
  • Lease negotiations
  • Rent review, lease renewal and valuations
  • Reductions in occupancy costs
  • Rent abatement negotiation
  • Site acquisitions
  • Lease dispositions
  • General tenant advocacy and consultation

Portfolio management

  • Review our Client’s current occupancy costs (gross rent as a percentage of sales). We would then develop an ideal model of size and formulate a strategy to reduce any unacceptable occupancy costs.
  • Negotiate all existing lease options, renewals and rent abatements bearing in mind our Client’s occupancy cost hurdles, the local market price and their historical cost.
  • Look at any excessive occupancy costs with a view to negotiate rent abatements or other concessions where appropriate and financially justifiable.
  • Provide, discuss and mutually agree on a set of Standard Lease Terms covering (as well as rental and capex) items such as allowances, reviews, guarantees, usage clauses, relocation clauses, commencement dates, personal guarantees and security deposits. We will collect information on common area maintenance charge breakdowns, legal descriptions, environmental reports, parking tabulations, and design/signage criteria and exclusives that may affect use of the premises by the client.

Client portal

A retail lease is the fundamental contract that underpins a retailer’s entire revenue. Occupancy cost is generally the second largest expense after wages, and maintaining secure and tradable premises is critical to business operations. 

More strategic management of your real estate portfolio will provide occupancy cost savings, administration cost and time savings.

  • Centralised e-storage of business information and documents.
  • Access to critical information pertaining to your portfolio, anytime & anywhere.
  • Real time access to all critical deal information of retail locations, including site plans, area certificates, key contacts, communication history, leasing documents, and more.

Site research

SITE RESEARCH, SELECTION & NEGOTIATION

Help create and implement an appropriate retail strategy for our Client’s target sites.

Identify appropriate sites within the target malls, centres, strips or streets for review and approval by our Client.

Work through a target list of locations in priority as agreed by our Client. In order to achieve a progressive outcome over the next 12-24 months or as advised, we would in fact make contact with the relevant landlords in the first 30 days of our engagement in order to conduct a portfolio review.

Once the site was agreed, we would negotiate the best commercial terms of the lease and provide the fair market value rent for the proposed premises based on market comparables and support to such claims.

Prepare an appropriate board pack which would include, inter alia, 

  • Site plan showing surroundings streets, parking, ingress and egress
  • Photos of the surrounding streets
  • Aerial of site
  • Local and regional maps highlighting site location
  • Traffic counts of bordering streets/ door counts where available
  • Marketing materials from landlord
  • Demographics of site
  • CAM/ Additional rent breakdown
  • Comparable rents and tenant improvement allowance
