The major tenant’s lease had expired, and a smaller footprint had been requested within the building. Substantial costs were associated with splitting up the lease areas, and additional fire cladding regulation requirements had identified that the building’s upper level existing long-term tenant could no longer occupy the building without cladding rectification works being completed. The major costs associated, and tenant lease uncertainty was a source of concern for the owner, and he was reluctant to invest more capital into the building at the time.
Complexities associated with the building were likely to result in a drawn-out sale process and the seller required a shorter-term outcome, Auction was recommended, and the strategy was to:
- Disclose all cladding requirements and tenant requirements to prospective buyers.
- Contractor quotes were made available for all issues associated with the cladding rectification requirements and the splitting of lease areas to fulfil the major tenants reduced footprint requirement
- Our leasing division provided detailed advice over lease rates for the area and an overview of current tenant demand, providing a level of comfort to prospective buyers
- Indicative fully leased income estimates were provided to showcase the buildings potential income opportunities upon works completion.
Throughout the campaign the property attracted over 40 enquiries with multiple interested parties vying for the property prior to auction. On auction day, there were multiple bidders with the final price exceeded the client’s expectations and a successful settlement being achieved within 60 days.
