Rating Services

A full service solution offered to clients including appeals and revaluations

Vacant Space Management are pleased to announce a collaborative working partnership with market leading property consultancy Allsop, collectively broadening our service offering to clients. Probably best known as the UK’s largest and most successful property auction house, Allsop’s reach is considerably wider and includes a large Business Rates division.


The experienced rating team of chartered surveyors offer the following services;


  • Rates Appeals – Rateable Values are often too high. They will examine whether or not your Rateable Value represents fair value, if not they can appeal against the level of your Rateable Value and lead all negotiations with the Valuation office. They have experience in presenting cases on behalf of our clients in Valuation Tribunal if resolution cannot be found through normal discussions.


  • Changes in your Environment – Where there is a material disturbance to your business from external factors they can seek allowances to your rates. These factors may include road works, refurbishment/demolition/construction at a new development adjacent to your property or at your own property causing a detrimental impact to your business.


  • Part Occupied Premises – They advise and provide savings for commercial premises that are not fully and only part occupied due to downsizing, seasonal and economic reductions in trade. This involves the application and completion of certificates to the relevant local authority.


  • Completion Notices on New Buildings – They will examine and in some cases appeal against the commencement of rates assessments.


VSM’s own expertise which lies in providing solutions for empty property, will be further complimented by the professionalism of Allsop’s Central London rating team. The rating team at Allsop’s has an impressive track record of appeals on behalf of ratepayer’s over many years, ensuring all avenues to reduce rates liabilities are pursued.

Together with our endeavours to make best use of your space, we are pleased to offer their services to all clients, along with the necessary expertise focused on giving clients best advice and securing maximum savings.

If you choose to instruct Allsop’s to challenge your rating assessments, in most cases you won’t be charged any upfront fees, instead fees will be based on a percentage of the rates saving made by your business.

VSM believe that Knowledge is Power.

Knowledge of the industry of the past and present helps us guide our clients to the future. This is our main USP to our clients.
