Rent Reviews


What do we do?

Our RICS regulated Chartered Surveyors determine the value of a site or building in the current market place in accordance with the RICS red book standards at the point of lease break or expiry to aid negotiation between landlord and tenant.


We assess all kinds of commercial property including retail, offices, mixed use and industrial to provide our considered opinion of its value. 


Rent reviews allow the rent on a commercial property to be adjusted in line with the current market value over the course of the tenancy. Rent reviews typically occur every three to five years in a commercial lease but the rent review clause in the lease terms will set out when each review will take place.

The basis on which the rent will be determined will be specified in the lease agreement and is usually the open market rental value’ of the premises at the date of the rent review but some leases will link the new rent to the increase in the retail price index instead

We will provide a detailed, evidence based report that provides our opinion of the value of the property in question.



We aim to turn reports around within seven days of inspection and you will be able to talk directly to the surveyor working on your behalf should you have any questions when you receive your report.

  • What is covered in a rent review?

    • Initial advice in respect of an upcoming rent review
    • A thorough inspection of all accessible areas of the property (if an inspection is required)
    • Reporting the market rental value at the applicable valuation date
    • Negotiation with the other party (landlord or tenant)
  • Why do valuations differ between Surveyors?

    Different Registered Valuers may provide different opinions of value because a valuation is an evidence based opinion with an element of subjectivity. When disagreements in value occur, courts are asked to decide if a value is correct but provided the valuation has been conducted in accordance with the RICS red Book (where best practice guidelines are set out by the regulatory body for Chartered Surveyors) an opinion of value cannot be ‘wrong’, as long as it is within reasonable tolerances of the court’s opinion of value. This tolerance is usually up to 10% over or under the original valuation. Consumers should hire a Chartered Surveyor with professional indemnity insurance to provide the confidence that the opinion of value can be relied upon subject to any qualifications in the valuation document.
