LICENSED TRADE + LEISURE

 

Graham + Sibbald has been working since 1959 buying and selling commercial property in Scotland.  

 

We have particular expertise in the Hospitality, Licensed and Leisure sector and are recognised as one of the leaders in this competitive part of the market.

 

We are retained by many of Scotland’s leading hospitality and leisure groups, large and small. We are experts at helping our clients find and purchase the most appropriate premises or businesses for their development needs.  

 

WHY GRAHAM + SIBBALD?

 

We provide our clients with a level of experience and expertise that many retail or commercial agents lack. In particular, we offer a specialist, sector-specific understanding of accounting principles, employment legislation and licensing regulations. This means that we can deal professionally with a wide range of issues, including:

  • the transfer of the Premise Licences
  • transferring staff under TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings, Protection of Employment)
  • complex accounting assessments and valuations

 

We place a major priority on confidentiality and only release information that is relevant to the valuation of a business. You can be assured that we will protect your interests whilst ensuring that your business is handled as efficiently and professionally as possible.

We also undertake asset valuations for both balance sheet and secured lending purposes. Our Valuation Reports are acceptable to all major banks and brewers.

 

MARKETING

For sellers, we market properties in a cost-effective way through a mix of on-line and print media and through direct contact with potential buyers.

We undertake rent reviews, negotiations and arbitrations. We are experienced in acting for both landlords and tenants to ensure that a fair market rent is agreed. We are also skilled at maximising the rental potential of licensed trade and leisure properties.
