Lilford Associates has been a client of Budworth Hardcastle for 25 years. During that time Lilford has built up a modest portfolio of commercial properties and has been supported and advised by Budworth Hardcastle throughout. This has included pre purchase assessments, market valuations for supporting finance and advice with the financial strength of existing tenants at the time of acquisition. Also, the subsequent renewal of leases and managing claims for dilapidations when tenants have elected not to renew. The Building Consultancy team have the resources to deal with the rebuild after a serious fire and recently a more modest refurbishment project. The stability of the senior management and the Directors especially has enabled a close understanding and working relationship to develop which has been most beneficial. The success that Lilford Associates has enjoyed has been with the support of our commercial property consultants.
Becketts and Sargeants Educational Foundation has used the services of John Burditt and Budworth Hardcastle’s Building Consultancy department since 2012, to upgrade and improve its property portfolio in Northampton Town Centre. The building work has mainly involved converting the upper parts of four aged buildings from vacant office suites (that were difficult to let and a financial burden) to eleven self-contained flats, with modern facilities. The flats are incoming producing and the rental income supplements the Foundation’s ability to provide grants to young people in Northampton for educational purposes. John has been instrumental in all of the four contracts and has been thoroughly professional throughout, including budgeting, tendering, selection of contractors, overseeing the works, certifying payments, and dealing with any amendments and alterations. Unforeseen issues, which were few, have been clearly and satisfactorily dealt with. Communication with the Foundation have been regular, concise, and pro-active with our queries being answered in a friendly and positive manner. It has been a pleasure to work with John and his team. I have no hesitation in recommending Budworth Hardcastle’s Building Consultancy for similar property conversion works and upgrades.
