Commercial Property

Thanks to increasing globalisation, businesses worldwide are relocating offices, factories, warehouses, and sometimes their entire operations to new countries or regions. Domestically, too, companies may need to relocate, perhaps in order to find the most cost-effective premises or tap in to a local talent pool.

The commercial property market, like its residential counterpart, acts as a useful barometer of conditions in the wider national and global economies, so it’s important for any company, whether or not it is considering an office move or a corporate relocation, to keep up to speed with the latest commercial property news and market intelligence.

Through articles, news, and expert comment and advice, including ‘how to’ tips, this section helps you to support your business by bringing you the latest on commercial property investment, purchase, rental and removals. It also covers economic background and current relocation hotspots.
