Freeholds

Whether you’re looking to purchase your next business premises or your next investment, we can help.

For Owner Occupiers

Nicholas Percival provides specialist services for clients wishing to acquire freehold commercial properties. Whilst we work nationwide, we have been working within Essex and Suffolk for the last 30 years. Our in-depth knowledge of the people, history and current market trends within Essex, combined with our strategic partnerships and professional contacts makes us uniquely placed to assist clients in East Anglia.

Here at Nicholas Percival, the first step we take is to understand your requirements. From this starting point we will then search and help you acquire freehold commercial property that meets your specifications. Our service encompasses everything from initial advice, property selection, accompanied viewings and technical advice on planning issues and regulations through to dealing with negotiations, instructing solicitors on your behalf (if required) and monitoring legal processes through to exchange and competition.

Our commercial clients return to us time and time again for our professionalism, discretion and exceptional service.

For Investors

Property can provide a sound investment achieving excellent long term capital growth as well as regular rental income. Within the South East and East Anglia, good quality investment properties are often sold well before they are placed on the open market and without the right assistance, clients can face an almost impossible task in knowing where to start their search, which areas to focus on or what will make the most suitable investment property for rental income, return and capital growth.

At Nicholas Percival we will ensure you secure the right asset, at the right price.

We draw on expertise from across our business to make sure you get the right investment asset for the right price; delivering maximum return whilst minimising the risk. Before we propose the composition of any clients’ property portfolio, we get to understand your needs and aspirations. Of course this means understanding your attitude to risk but also includes the understanding of the property investment; whether income/return is the main objective or capital growth, or both.

Our services cover everything from due diligence on your property investment to letting advice, property development support and asset management strategies.

Leases

When looking for a commercial lease, due diligence is key. At Nicholas Percival, we start with understanding your requirements and then will begin the search process and work with you through negotiations to exchange and completion.
