Braham Good’s track record speaks for itself by virtue of the extensive client base the Practice acts for.
Our expertise allows us to ensure that whether you are letting or selling a property we utilise our knowledge , contacts and general wherewithal and enthusiasm to ensure that an optimum outcome is achieved. Our role will extend to recommending coordinating and implementing all marketing initiatives.
As and when a tenant or purchaser has been identified, we will then handle all the negotiations, working closely with your solicitors and any other professional advisors involved in the transaction.
We have the experience, market knowledge and understanding of occupiers needs to help guide you and your professional team towards delivering a building fit for purpose.

The decision to acquire new offices can be a lengthy and complex process involving many hours of consideration, discussion and debate amongst colleagues and stakeholders alike. Our aim is to make this process as painless and as efficient as possible.
With an in depth market knowledge built up over many years of experience, coupled with access to a myriad of databases and market contacts we can provide at very short notice an indication of availability and the associated costs.
However, at Braham Good, we try to go the extra mile and in effect become your in house property department or “one stop shop” for the duration of the assignment. We will discuss and debate the advantages to be gained from moving to any particular area, the relative merits or otherwise of any particular property, landlord and brief you on rental trends in a particular area.
We can introduce you to a range of property and legal professionals who will be able to provide space planning advice, guidance on fit out costs, legal support in regard to leases, project managers and the like to ensure that your new offices are acquired, fitted out and ready to occupy in accordance with the agreed brief.
Much of our business is via recommendation and a lot of our clients have been so for many years.

A major side to our practice is advising both Landlords and Tenants in relation to rent reviews, lease renewals and other issues such as the implementation of break options.
When a landlord refuses to renew a lease that is held within the protection of the Landlord and Tenant Act and creating a liability to pay Statutory Compensation, this may sometimes be the subject of negotiation and perhaps payment of a higher amount.
In some instances where a lease is within the Landlord and Tenant Act and it has not been possible to arrive at a negotiated settlement, it might be necessary to act as your Expert and to present the case to Court. In the case of a rent review that cannot be agreed, in a similar capacity, submissions would be made to an Arbitrator or Independent Expert. In all instances we use our utmost skill to avoid the need to involve third parties but this is not always possible to avoid this, in endeavouring to achieve the best possible result for our client.
If you are therefore having problems with a rent review or lease renewal, with the benefit of our negotiating experience and knowledge of relevant legal legislation and case history, as well as our intimate market knowledge and sophisticated database, we can undertake these tricky negotiations on your behalf.

Working in collaboration with our rating consultant, Robert Wort, we lodge appeals for ratepayers and, where a negotiated settlement is not possible, present cases to the Valuation Tribunal.
As part of our ongoing advice for clients we provide rates budgets and help minimise the rates liability through our detailed knowledge of rate collection legislation.

In conjunction with our Consultant Building Surveyors, we are able to provide a range of services including space planning, cost consultancy, EPC provision, structural surveys, the preparation and negotiation of Schedules of Dilapidations, Project Management and the negotiation of party wall matters.
You may well be aware that leases generally contain a tenant’s liability to repair and redecorate at the end of the term. It is advisable to plan ahead and for the level and cost of this to be quantified before the end of the lease, rather than to wait until the last moment or until after the lease has expired.
