We don’t want to brag too loud because Landlords have long memories, our results speak for themselves however bragging about our successful deals.
The verbal advice I received through Lease1 – confirmed my thoughts and was helpful. Although given my circumstance – I was limited with my options with regard to negotiating with my Landlord.
Extremely impressed with quick turnaround from enquiry to being supplied with comprehensive and clear advice. Many thanks.
Very helpful advice. Thank you
Clarified my options and offered helpful suggestions.
Excellent service and very friendly adviser with genuine information and advise.
Phil was extremely helpful in providing guidance and advice relating to our lease renewal. I had some ideas of what I was hoping to achieve for our renewal, Phil gave reason and clarity around
these and even suggested I tackle the negotiation myself before fully engaging his service. I took his advice and had a successful outcome. Phil clearly is an honest and reputable professional that I would certainly recommend to anyone. Really appreciate his honest approach.
Phil is a very great guy! Very knowledgeable and genuine – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

We used Lease1 for site-sourcing new premises, re-locations, lease renewals, landlord issues and they provide expert & efficient services with results. They are extremely professional to deal with and they represent our brand in the wider community, the way we would ourselves – and that is very important to us . . .

I have no hesitation in recommending Phil Chapman of Lease1 when it comes time to extend the lease in which your business is located. We have contacted Phil twice now, and his expertise and knowledge of the commercial real estate industry is invaluable and very reassuring. His fees are very reasonable, and he manages to make the whole process as professional and as painless as possible. In the first instance, we were able to negotiate a 10 % reduction in our rent, and this last time, where no negotiations were required, he offered his time and knowledge for free. Thanks Phil!
