NG Surgery Ensures Right Prescription for Property Professionals
5th October 2017
A packed room of advisers from Nottingham’s professional sector joined NG to learn key insights and best practice for landlords and investors at our first ever ‘surgery’ this week.
Held at the one of the city’s newest hospitality venues, The Brewhouse and Kitchen on Trent Bridge, our breakfast event was created to ensure that the city’s professionals are fully briefed on behalf of their clients ahead of scheduled changes in legislation and to offer guidance on critical issues for busy landlords.
Presented in a panel format, guests had the opportunity to ask our property management experts Richard Brown and James McArthur any nagging questions they had and also to hear our prescription for some of the most frequently occurring headaches a property portfolio owner encounters.
In a wide-ranging discussion, topics included the rising role of technology in surveying, the impact of the new MEES regulations scheduled for April 2018 and the impact on property of the Millennial generation and how to position and create assets to best take advantage of this evolving landscape.
NG’s Richard Sutton chaired the debate, fielding audience questions and asking the most common questions that our team receives on a daily basis. Richard said;
“We have been looking at the best way to ensure that our contacts and clients in the professional services sector can access information that will really benefit their clients. We blog, we write articles in the press and we send regular newsletters but nothing beats questions straight from the coalface. We are all about adding value at NG, whether to a property portfolio or to our professional colleagues and whilst this was an informal event, we are confident that it delivered really strong advice that our audience can implement right now.”
Sunny Landa closed the surgery with an overview of the city’s office market and also a vision for the future for property owners and advisers across the globe;
“Consider this, in the near future, 65 percent of the kids in school today will be working in a job that currently does not exist in an organisational culture that demands flexibility and offers so much more than a traditional career. This points to a seismic shift on the property market, notably where we work. The wise investor, landlord and adviser will do well to keep abreast of this evolving landscape, planning for the future now, rather than waiting for events to unfold around them”
