Tenant Support and Advice during the Coronavirus Outbreak

We all find ourselves in unusual circumstances with the way ahead unknown, during this time it is important that the management and support of all our tenanted properties continues as safely as possible.

We are continuing to work solidly behind the scenes to keep our services running efficiently with office based teams working remotely from the Estate Office, but all still contactable via email and emergency telephone numbers.

We are all conscious of the potential uncertainties facing tenants and businesses alike. Please be assured that if you have any questions surrounding the terms of your tenancy we are keen to have open and productive conversations with you and assist where we can.

Rents will continue to be charged in the usual manner. Tenants finding themselves in financial difficulty should contact us as soon as possible. Our team are here to discuss individual situations and offer help and advice where available. It is important to keep us updated and maintain an open and honest dialogue of your circumstances.

For all property related matters if you are unsure, or feel it is an emergency, please contact the Estate Office. We are trying to maintain an emergency service in the current challenging climate.

We would be grateful for your patience and understanding as we continue to work during this time.
