The business rates liability on most commercial properties equates to roughly half the rent, and is one of the largest fixed outgongs for property occupiers. Andrew Dixon & Company can give an independent opinion on a property's rateable value, and advice on lodging an appeal.
Everyone hopes that they will never be affected by a Compulsory Purchase Order, but inevitably in this changing world, properties and businesses are affected from time to time. We can offer advice and assistance in compensation claims relating to losses under a compulsory purchase scheme.
