Owners of vacant commercial property are entitled a period of rates relief (3 or 6 months, depending on the type of property) when a property first falls vacant after 6 weeks of continuous occupation.
Simon Alexander maintains a database of businesses with flexible space requirements who can take occupation of your premises on a short term basis to trigger a fresh period of rates relief.
If you run the sort of business that can be flexible and make good use of commercial space for a short period, we may be able to find you premises at minimal (or even no) cost. If the thought of this appeals to you and you meet the following requirements, please contact us to be added to the Short Term Occupier database.
Key requirements:
  • Minimum period 6 weeks
  • No hazardous substances
  • Prepared to move out or relocate at short notice
