Commercial surveying services from the Beattie Partnership

Distribution Warehouses, Liverpool

The rateable values of all non-domestic properties in England and Wales are reassessed every five years – this change can have significant financial impact on all kinds of businesses. Regional distribution warehouses are particularly affected by such reassessments, as their large size usually puts them at odds with other sites in the locality. Their proximity to the local transport network is also a deciding factor.

The Beattie Partnership's experienced surveyors took on the case of a set of distribution warehouses in Liverpool. It became apparent that the valuation had been affected by a number of factors: in many such cases, a lack of rental evidence – due to many sites being freehold – can have a huge impact. By thoroughly researching the site itself, as well as variances in the local area, we were able to challenge the initial rating and achieve a saving of £145,000.
