  • Knowing your EPC from A to G

  • 11 February 2016
  • As a firm we take our responsibility for the environment very seriously, not only in terms of legal compliance but also the wider impact on the planet. One aspect which covers both of these bases is our work to promote energy efficiency through EPCs (Energy Performance Certification) and other forms of green building. The industry is definitely seeing an increase in the way the Government is looking at ways to achieve their energy efficiency objectives by making property owners more responsible for their buildings. From 1st March 2015 the law was changed to make it illegal to let commercial premises with an EPC rating of F or G from after 1st April 2018. It is the landlord’s duty to fulfil these requirements prior to this forthcoming date which is closer than you think. Furthermore, although an EPC certificate lasts for ten years, the criteria on which the ratings are based are also being tightened, so a building which is currently deemed energy efficient may not be next time round.

  • Croydon Council in partnership with local community keen to bring former Ashburton Library building back to life

  • 11 February 2016
  • Ashburton Library, just north of Central Croydon, presents a prime letting opportunity for a variety of uses. The building – which was historically a Convent – is locally Listed, comprises 6,222 sq ft and is located in the heart of Ashburton Park. Expressions of interest are invited from occupiers interested in taking a lease on all or part of the building. Uses should be sympathetic to the location in the park. Permitted Use is currently D1 but other uses which meet the criteria of Croydon Council will be considered. Uses that may be considered include: café, restaurant, nursery, education, sports, performance and health care. This list is not exhaustive, although a predominant area of the building should be utilised for community use.

  • Making plans for Nigels

  • 11 February 2016
  • A new group ‘Nigels in Property’ has recently started to band together to promote a name which has become so uncool its back in vogue. The London property sector has so far only produced nine Nigels, who held an inaugural meeting in Mayfair last month, to dine and swap stories of the two things they primarily have in common – Property and being called Nigel! The next meeting of Nigels in Property is likely to be held this summer in a London location to be confirmed.

  • SHW Professional case study

  • 10 February 2016
  • Many property news stories are about one-off deals, speculative launches or quarterly figures, but we shouldn’t forget that true client relations are derived from diligent year-on-year work behind the scenes, which can add value and yield significant benefit. For instance, SHW Professional Division was instructed in 2012 by the freeholder of a large retail warehouse with ancillary food sales in West Sussex. We have subsequently provided the following to add value and develop the client’s property interests:
