Following legislative changes, the government has penalised landlords and ratepayers of vacant space, by making them liable for business rates at the same basic level as occupied properties, after an initial rate-free period.
This represents a double burden for landlords paying full rates at a time when a property is not rent producing; a tough financial hit just when you least need it.
With the right advice there are numerous opportunities to mitigate these liabilities lawfully.
Marston Associates work with various providers to deliver savings on empty business rate liabilities, and have successfully advised on empty rate mitigation strategies since 2010. To date, all our clients have saved monies.
With case law changing frequently, you can be assured that our specialist Chartered Surveyors are able to deliver expert and time relevant advice to ensure these liabilities are minimised.

The significant sums that you were able to obtain for us from various sources has been exceptional, and all this without burdening our own staff.
Eve worked hard to assure me that I was not being ‘scammed’. Thankfully her persistence paid off and we have received a refund I did not expect.
Thank you for the excellent work you and your company has done and for all your support you have given us in discovering new recovery areas.
