Charlotte Ward

Charlotte helps clients to document, in a fast and trouble free manner, the new lettings they work so hard to achieve, and to acquire new assets for their portfolio which fit with their business plans, while also highlighting any risks.

Charlotte's experience in the retail sector means she has a clear understanding of what drives the development/investment and how to achieve a successful result efficiently.

Highlight

Working with the in-house team at a major retailer, securing urgent warehousing on a tight timescale. This included a site visit and several late nights ensuring that the stock could arrive at midnight the evening we concluded the transaction. The client was extremely pleased that, despite the obstacles of a particularly difficult landlord, we were able to meet the timescales they had been set by its logistics team which it had initially described as unachievable.

Clients

Retail Landlords, Investors, Developers

Experience

Working with a developer to secure pre-lets for a new retail park ensuring that complicated co-tenancy conditions would be met.

Securing key anchor lettings for a new outlet shopping centre and running a team completing the other lettings to ensure efficiency and consistency.

Advising on the acquisition of a £20m retail park for an investor and subsequent refinancing of the same, together with dealing with ongoing asset management.

Ensuring that retail lettings across established/redeveloped shopping centres are run efficiently to minimise the impact of vacant units as quickly as possible.

Carrying out the due diligence for an international retailer for its key acquisitions of warehousing with rail freight capabilities.
