The Commercial Agency department at Caxtons has grown over a number of years, becoming established as one of the leading property agents along the Thames corridor and throughout Kent. We advise clients on all aspects of commercial property, from buying, assisting with a commercial lease agreement or helping you let your commercial property in the South East. All of this is done in a professional and proactive manner.
Our work encompasses all commercial sectors, including:
- Distribution & Industrial
- Motor Trade
- R & D
- Mixed Use
- Development sites (both commercial and residential)
Our experienced teams are located around Kent, enabling us to deliver a bespoke service, tailored to you. They are based in:
- Gravesend & Crossways, working in North Kent and along the A13 corridor in South Essex
- Canterbury, serving the East Kent region
- Maidstone, covering mid-Kent
We believe it is of the utmost importance to have an experienced surveyor in each of our local teams with knowledge of both residential and commercial properties in the region. This, helps them and their team to provide you with the very best information and service possible when it comes to commercial property in Kent and the South East.
Our core services include:
- Sales and lettings
- Strategic advice
- Development appraisals
We use the latest IT applications relating to property development and buying commercial property. We also engage through social media, using software such as CoStar Suite, Prodev, Rightmove, MoveHut, EG propertylink and LinkedIn, to reach out to our clients and prospective clients.
Our clients range from individual investors and tenants to international investment funds, property companies and property developers.
Caxtons is pleased to sponsor the Kent Property Market Report, the annual guide to investment and development in Kent.
Caxtons was instructed by an occupier of leasehold premises to find an assignee for their lease. The new tenant had to be a national or substantial local company.
At the time, the macro economy was still in recession. Occupiers were not moving into new accommodation, instead opting to stay where they were and negotiate tough new terms with their existing landlord.
Using our broad market knowledge, extensive database of applicants, and other contacts, we were able to introduce a large, well established distribution chain. We prepared information on the proposed assignee for the landlord, and agree terms. We informed our client of their obligations under their lease, the need to instruct a solicitor to handle the transaction, and to employ a building surveyor to undertake a schedule of condition to limit and calculate their liabilities to the landlord before the assignment went ahead.
The assignment was successfully completed just a few months after negotiations commenced, despite the technical nature of the transaction.
