About BHT

Brackenridge Hanson Tate is a an independent, multi-disciplined firm of commercial chartered surveyors.

The core of BHT is a small, highly-motivated team led by two of its founding partners, D.W.Brackenridge and Robin Hanson, together with two surveyors, an account manager and a secretary. Our national coverage is enhanced by long-established working relationships with two consultants working beyond the northern property market that is our primary focus; Rob Stollery works with BHT from his base in Derbyshire and Clive Thomas covers much of what we do in London and the South.

We aim to deliver a professional, high quality and proactive approach based on the provision of a tailored service, always looking to build long-term relationships and win repeat business. This approach has allowed us to establish a diverse client base that includes businesses such as Skipton Building Society, HSBC, Rayner & Keeler, Handelsbanken, Threadneedle and Commercial Estates Group.

As a firm of professional property surveyors, BHT is regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). We are also members of PAI, the industry association for smaller commercial property practices in the UK.

On behalf of the Trustees, we have agreed a re-gear with C&J Clark on the above property. The lease was due to expire in November 2014 but we negotiated a new 10 year lease at the passing rent of £78,450 pax in return for a 12 month rent free period. For the Trustees this represented an excellent opportunity to secure the income stream and hence capital value.
