Oldfield Smith & Co are pleased to advise that the former HSC bank in Horley, Surrey has now been let.
Located on Victoria Rd, one of the town’s premier retail locations, this is a larger than average unit with the benefit of rear servicing. We received interest from a range of retail and hospitality businesses, but the new occupier will be taking advantage of the established A2 use consent and the building will be occupied as professional offices. A rent close to the quoting figure was achieved on the basis of a new 5 year lease.
Our involvement in this site has been comprehensive and has included settling a dilapidations claim with HSBC after termination of their lease, sale of the freehold and assessment of development options. The new occupiers are now fitting out and it is hoped will commence trading from the property shortly.
Despite the challenges of the pandemic and government “lockdown” restrictions, there remains a vey active commercial property market and we are seeing strong levels of demand for offices, warehouses and warehouses. Although the retail sector is facing significant challenges, we are seeing continuing demand from smaller independent traders and are still letting shops, with a number of completions taking place recently. However, securing lettings in the current climate requires an understanding of business needs and an ability to provide flexible solutions which adapt to changing circumstances. Oldfield Smith & Co are well placed to meet those needs and can provide balanced, informed and professional advice. We are Chartered Surveyors, so operate to the very highest ethical and technical standards. Our approach to marketing makes finding the right property as easy as possible for prospective tenants, providing instant access to full particulars, extensive image libraries of both the interior and exterior, panoramic photos and video tours.
