Successful rent-review for major car dealership

Successful rent-review for major car dealership

Our Aylesbury office has recently negotiated a rent review on a large main-dealership garage in Aylesbury.

The site in question totals in excess of 2 acres with buildings totalling c. 24,000 sq ft, along with 183 car spaces for cars-for-sale and associated parking.

Negotiating rent reviews for car dealership sites is not an easy task! for two reasons

– Car dealerships are often owned freehold, which means there is a shortage of market rental evidence
– Many motor dealership leases provide for rents to be indexed linked, rather than to open market rental value

Despite the challenges presented by this sector, Brown & Lee was able to negotiate a healthy increase in rent c.15% on review, to a sum comfortably in excess of £200,000 per annum.
