MJD Hughes Ltd is offering a 60% discount on report preparation, and a 50% discount on consultancy services. Whether you are a community group looking to buy and run your local pub and need a valuation, or a community shop looking for independent business and property advice, MJD Hughes Ltd will provide a free no-obligation initial telephone consultation with your community group. MJD Hughes is a RICS registered valuer.
Reports available from MJD Hughes Ltd include:
Business buyer and market appraisal valuation report – This report has been supplied to over 100 community groups looking to buy their local pub. The report provides valuation advice, and comments on the condition of the property and analyses business potential and profitability. Any liabilities for the community group are highlighted to allow discussion with a legal representative, and financial risks and mitigation are commented on in order to provide a document that can be used when preparing submissions for loans, grants, and other funding.
Business plan and cash flow analysis – A business plan will enable more accurate use of available funds and give a clear focus on development. Adding a cash flow analysis will help when looking to acquire funds for the purchase or development of a business.
Planning – An assessment of the viability of a property/feasibility of a community groups business case, and assistance in preparing a submission for planning where the owner of, for example, a public house has proposed change of use against the wishes of a community group and/or Asset of Community Value.
Inventory report – When a community is selling or buying a property or business, a full inventory should be produced to include any fixtures, fittings and effects. If these items are to be bought or sold, a valuation should accompany the inventory report.
Rent review report – It is advisable that a landlord should assess the rent on their property prior to initiating a rent review. A rent review report can provide the landlord or a tenant/lessee with all the information they require to successfully undertake rent review negotiations. MJD Hughes Ltd can also provide market rent only analysis for those wanting to take advantage of the Pub Code.
Commercial property inspection report – This report is invaluable for a community wanting to ensure that their tenant/lessee is maintaining the property in accordance with the terms of the agreement. This can be provided annually, at a regular period such as prior to rent reviews.
In addition to the above reports, MJD Hughes Ltd can also advise on all property and operational related areas. This may include:
- Putting together a commercial lease
- Recruiting a tenant
- Business operational issues (e.g. optimising sales)
- Bespoke business advice as required
- Business rates appraisal
Consultancy support can be provided on an individual basis in addition to, or instead of, a business report. MJD Hughes Ltd consultancy rates are £150 per hour with a 50% discount for Plunkett Community Business Members
