We provide acquisition advice to a number of private individuals, institutions and local authorities for both occupation and investment.

Affinity One 3000B Parkway

Using our extensive market knowledge, Hellier Langston are ideally placed to both help source premises, and negotiate the best possible terms on behalf of occupiers.

In terms of the acquisition service we provide, this can be broken down as follows:

  • Discuss with you in more detail your potential requirements, paying particular attention to:
    a) Location
    b) Overall cost
    c) Specification
    d) Size requirement - we may recommend appointing a space planner to assess your current premises and their use to see if any efficiency savings can be found as smaller, more efficient premises will be less costly.
  • Identify potential opportunities, both on or off market, by approaching local/ national agents, as well as landlords, and occupiers
  • Provide you with a schedule of all identified opportunities, including costings such as rent, rates and service charge (if appropriate)
  • Discuss potential opportunities with you, paying particular attention to:
    a)  Suitability for your operations
    b)   Available lease terms
    c)   Condition of premises (a detailed survey may be required, and should be carried out by a qualified Building Surveyor)
    d)   Market conditions
    e)   Other considerations, such as business rates and service charge

Once an opportunity has been identified, we would be the main point of contact, opening and carrying out negotiations on your behalf.

  • At this point further specialist advice may be required, such as the services of a building surveyor
  • Once negotiations have been concluded, we would look to agree Heads of Terms with the landlord or their agents
  • Upon agreement of Heads of Terms, we would continue to liaise with your solicitors and the landlords until exchange/ completion.

Hellier Langston is a multi-disciplinary practice, and our teams who deal with commercial agency, valuation, building surveying, and property management are able to work closely to advise on all aspects of the acquisition process from start to finish.

Our services

Commercial agency

With our knowledge and expertise, we can provide a full range of commercial property agency services, whether you are seeking to acquire or dispose of commercial property.


Lease advisory

With in-depth technical and market knowledge, our specialist surveyors help property investors and occupiers to negotiate the best lease terms to support business strategy and objectives.



Valuations are required for a number of reasons including loan security, tax and accounts, as well as potential acquisitions and lettings. Obtaining a unbiased professionally prepared valuation by an RICS Registered Valuer allows a clear decision process that utilises the most recent and relevant market evidence.


Business rates

After rent and staff costs one of the biggest and most overlooked costs for occupiers are Business Rates. The 2023 Revaluation is based on rental values as at 1 April 2021, given the changes in the commercial property market and the time since the last valuation it is more important than ever for occupiers and Landlords to ensure that they seek to minimise their Business Rates liability.


Property management

With a wealth of experience in working with a wide range of Private Investors, Pension Funds, Local Authorities and Trusts our management team will work hard to maintain your property portfolio, adding value where possible and maintaining excellent relationships with both you and your tenants. In so doing, we can enhance your properties and manage your leases to maintain or improve investment values.

Our building surveyors provide clients with services across all sectors including offices, industrial, retail, education, health and residential to both investors and occupiers.
