Free Commercial Tenant Meetings
Tenant meetings are an essential aspect of leasing commercial office space in order to ensure the tenant has a clear perspective of the services you are paying for. 70% of commercial tenants rarely hold a tenant meeting with their managing agent resulting in missed opportunity to view your quarterly variance etc. We offer a free service to host your meetings giving a greater insight into your services and bringing your estate together as a collective.

A previous client occupied a building of 116,356 sqft over 12 floors, they shared the property with four companies and opted for the facilities team structure.They meet every quarter to review the variance reports and only encourages tenant meetings which were not previously taking place and decisions were made to actually benefit the tenants.
