General Services


Acquiring property can be a stressful process and having professional input can ease the tension my minimising costs and complications. We can provide advice on valuation, rental, leasing, business rates, building condition, planning or development potential.

Acting as your negotiator, we would ensure you strike the best deal possible and keep you fully updated throughout the process.

Sales & Lettings

We target the widest possible market in respect of property sales and lettings and use our negotiating skills and market knowledge to ensure best sales prices and rents are achieved.

Valuation Reports

We prepare Valuation Reports and Investment Appraisals in accordance with recognised guidelines set out by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. As such, these documents are recognised and accepted by lenders, financial institutions as well as other authorities and organisations.

Valuations can be used for a variety of purposes including loan security, expert opinion, probate, matrimonial settlement, taxation planning, relocation and financial statements.

Our report will contain reference to planning investigations and development potential that may add value.

Before a valuation is carried out the client’s requirement will be discussed and confirmed to ensure the report is properly scoped and suitable for purpose.

Property Management

Looking after the key event dates in the life cycle of any commercial property is where Barlow Property Consultancy can make a difference to the financial return of your asset. Whether you are a property owner or tenant, we can maximise revenue and minimise occupational costs. We are happy to represent either a landlord or tenant to ensure the best deal possible is struck on your behalf and that important diary dates such as rent reviews and lease expiry dates are not overlooked. We are able to interpret lease terms and handle disputes that may arise between a landlord and tenant.

Town & Country Planning

We are able to research and advise on the development potential that your land or property might possess in order to achieve additional value. We would carry out initial enquiries with planning officers leading to submission of planning applications and supporting appraisals. We would coordinate the input of complimentary professional services where required. Examples of our work include planning research/applications for residential and commercial property development, conversion of farms barns to residential usechange of use and diversion of public right of way.

Licensing Act 2003

We act as agents in applying for Licences under the Licencing Act 2003. Whether it be a Late Night Refreshment licence, entertainment licence or licence to sell alcohol for consumption off the premises, we are able to assist. We specialise in guiding small operators through the process.

We have successfully guided clients through the application process and acted successfully for clients at Local Authority Hearings.

Disability Discrimination Act 1995

We have a particular interest in disability issues and as such we feel able to provide sensible advice on responsibilities under this Act. We can provide a full access audit or in the case of smaller businesses a ‘walk and talk’. Making businesses and properties accessible is often more than ramps and grab rails and we feel economies can be achieved by approaching the problem with the experience of Barlow Property Consultancy.
