About BHT

Brackenridge Hanson Tate is a an independent, multi-disciplined firm of commercial chartered surveyors. Providing professional property services since 1998, we provide a quality, nationwide service from our offices in Leeds. 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.

Acting jointly with Mike Smith& Company, we have acquired Unit 1 Parc Pensarn, Stephens Way, Carmarthen and 52 Northumberland Road, Berwick upon Tweed on behalf of Jack Lunn Properties at a price of £2.1 million reflecting a net initial yield of 7.36%. The properties were acquired on a sale and leaseback from Farm Foods Ltd who took new 20 year leases, paying a combined rental of £165,000 pax with the first rent reviews being geared to OMV or 2.5 per annum compound, whichever is the higher. Carl Wright of Jack Lunn Properties said the acquisition of these properties fitted perfectly with the current investment strategy to acquire two new retail stores let to a 5A1 covenant at an attractive yield.
