Buying or selling for your business

Helping you to find or sell freehold business premises.

Finding and acquiring freehold commercial property or identifying potential buyers for your business premises, can be a challenging process.

Our team of over 25 business space and property investment experts have the regional property market expertise necessary to make the process of buying or selling commercial property a smooth, uncomplicated affair.

Our people, your partners

Operating across the Midlands, north, south coast and south east, we work for a range of corporate occupiers from SMEs to multi-national corporations, to acquire or sell business premises, including offices, retail / leisure, industrial and warehousing, as well as development land.

Whether you want to buy state-of-the-art new premises, sell your asset, or you want to buy development land to self-build, we will work closely with you to achieve your strategic business aims.

Our services are founded on in-depth regional property market knowledge, ensuring the best outcome for our clients, who benefit from the wider experience of our team, including valuation and business rates expertise, building surveying and project management.

Buy commercial property

The first stage in helping business owners to acquire freehold commercial property, is to get underneath the skin of your business.

We make it our business to understand your business, so we deliver the right property solution to meet your needs – both now and in the future.

From there, we will search for premises matching your requirements. Owing to our in-depth market knowledge, this can lead to off-market opportunities.

We will then organise and accompany you to view a shortlist of properties, and we will support you throughout the negotiation process to achieve the best deal, ensuring you reach your goals in the desired timescales. Once solicitors are instructed, we will remain actively involved to address any potential renegotiation through the legal process.

We are able to provide a project management service, advising on fitting out your new building to ensure the best value for money, and will manage the procurement and delivery of your project.

ā€œIā€™d like to thank Vail Williams for working quickly to establish our needs, and then not only meet them, but exceed them in the sourcing of our new premises. The team worked efficiently and communicated well with us throughout the process, to ensure we achieved what we wanted, on time, and on budget.ā€

Sell your commercial premises

We help owner-occupiers across the UK to sell their business premises with our innovative approach to marketing across all asset classes, from offices and industrial, to retail / leisure, trade counter and more.

With an award-winning agency team on our side, we will create an effective property marketing campaign tailored to suit the building and market.

We pride ourselves in bringing our regional market knowledge to bear, pre-empting market trends, researching active investors in the marketplace, whilst understanding the best cost-effective marketing tools to generate interest in your property.

Our agency specialists will support the sale of your asset throughout the transaction process, planning and implementing detailed marketing campaigns to promote the property, negotiating Heads of Terms to protect your interests, and managing the transaction with solicitors through to completion.

We can also help you to simultaneously source new premises, if required, to ensure a smooth transition from one premises to another.

When you appoint a property adviser, you expect the advice you will get to be factually correct and to achieve a positive outcome. However, when you appoint a team of advisers like Vail Williams, what you get is so much more. Their ability to draw upon expertise from across a broad range of disciplines, coupled with their desire to get under the skin of your business, helps them to achieve a level of service which surpasses expectations.
