Accommodation Solutions

Save significant time and capital when you engage Charter to negotiate your commercial, retail or industrial leases and deliver the optimum accommodation for your business.

Negotiating a lease for commercial premises requires a specific skill set. At Charter, we have experts dedicated to this specific service to ensure our clients secure the best possible accommodation at the most competitive terms.

Our experts are specialists on all commercial lease related matters and purchasing negotiations, consistently delivering:

  • Significant time savings to management
  • Optimal leasing deal to provide long-term cost savings
  • Reduced legal fees
  • Focused and independent specialist attention to property issues that are non-core business matters for Clients
  • Reduced risks from potential future cost legacies (make goods).

The most critical factor that drives results is early engagement. Engagement at least 6-12 months before your lease expires will allow key issues to be identified and ensure we deliver the most intelligent strategy for you. We can also assist if the accommodation decision has been left shorter than the optimal time frame.

We have reviewed, secured and negotiated over 1.5 million sq.m. of commercial space on a national scale – generating cost savings and benefits for clients of up to 10 to 30 times the cost of our fees.
