The process of widening a bottleneck on the main road between London and Hastings in East Sussex will officially begin later this year, Greg Clark MP said.
VAT - Option to tax can be revoked
Since 1989 property owners have been able to claim back vat on expenses incurred on buildings by opting to tax but once a building was subject to vat, that was it for ever. Not any more. The option to tax can now be revoked after 20 years and there can be significant savings as well as making a property attractive to parties that are not registered for vat:01 May 2009 @ 09:00
If for instance a factory is to be sold for £230,000 ex vat, the total price would be £272,435 including £34,500 vat and £7,935 Stamp duty at 3%. If the option to tax is revoked, there is no vat and the stamp duty reduces to 1%, £2,300, a ...
Industrial and Warehouse premises will be given 100% relief for the first six months from when the property becomes empty, whilst Office and Retail premises will be given 100% relief for the first three months. All rate relief for these properties will end after this time and the full Non-Domestic Business Rate will be chargeable.01 Apr 2009 @ 09:00
However, for the financial year 2009/10, empty properties with a rateable value of less than £15,000 will be exempt from business rates.
You can always take the roof off as London Life did in the 1970s but be aware that they may charge you if you adopt tactics ju...

Current market conditions
Despite the gloom in the news, Core Commercial are still doing deals. There has been a shift from last year where 75% of deals were freehold to today where 75% of the deals are lettings but sometimes with options to purchase the freehold.01 Mar 2009 @ 09:00
Many of the deals that we are doing are on substandard properties where rents are especially low and in out of the way locations such as Lydd, Sissinghurst and Tonge. We are also receiving good interest in the larger developments of above 20,000 sqft but where the timescale for occupation is probably at least 12 months away. The properties that really seem t...

Overcharged for Electricity and Gas
We have just had a very nasty bill from Atlantic for gas and electricity. The bills for the last year had all been estimated. Following a recent meter reading the bill they sent sought to charge us for the whole of the sum underpaid, which mostly related to last winter, at the recent well publicised higher rate. We questioned this and as a result they have reduced our bill by 11%.

Planning appeal won on behalf of Rother District Council defending loss of employment land. This was a major commercial site just off the A21 between Hastings and Tunbridge Wells that the developers wished to see redeveloped for residential. David Marriott acted as expert witness at the Public Inquiry providing evidence of the viability and occupier demand for continued commercial use.

Stamp duty payable on purchase price AND VAT
Whilst you would expect a purchasers solicitor to advise that stamp duty is payable upon not only the purchase price of a property but also the VAT element, a couple of purchasers have panicked at the last minute! Further we even had a purchaser a couple of years ago who had borrowed insufficient funds to cover the addition of VAT on the base purchase price from their bank and were accordingly unable to complete the purchase and lost their deposit. The moral is to use a reputable solicitor and bank who will point out these pitfalls before you start.01 Sep 2008 @ 09:00

In summary, if you own a commercial building, either you or your tenant is required to have an asbestos report which can carried out by you (or a professional consultant).01 Sep 2008 @ 09:00
If you are responsible for managing the maintenance and repair of a building (duty holder), you must manage any asbestos in it. As well as protecting people from exposure to asbestos fibres, you have a legal duty to manage asbestos (under regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006).
The duty to manage asbestos is contained in regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006. It requires the person w...
We consider that an airport off Sheppey (or Cliffe) is a good idea. Whilst Boris Johnsons thought of closing Heathrow to pay for it is probably unrealistic, this could be a great opportunity for Kent to create jobs and shift the focus of wealth and opportunity eastwards. It is also not necessary to ruin the life of 1,000s more people in West London with the addition of an extra runway at Heathrow. Sheppey now has good transport links with the dualled A249 and crossing as well.01 Sep 2008 @ 09:00
