Selling or leasing your business or property

Selling your business or property may be a once in a lifetime experience or regular move, but in either case it is equally important that the best possible figure is obtained at the lowest realistic cost, with the least inconvenience and with as few people as possible (especially staff and customers), being aware that the business or property is on the market, except genuine applicants.

We often hear of private sales which have been negotiated without taking advice from any source. Remember that a Bank Manager, Accountant or Solicitor, however well qualified, will not have the practical and up-to-date experience of the market that a specialist Business Transfer Agent will have.

CENTRAL BUSINESS AGENCY provide a FREE VALUATION service for sale purposes without obligation where a Partner in the practice will personally visit you at a convenient time to advise you on the value and saleability of your concern.

In many cases it is vitally important to try and ensure that staff are not aware a business is on the market and also that regular customers should not be lost through uncertainty. Unless requested to do so, CENTRAL BUSINESS AGENCY do not therefore include addresses on sales particulars or in advertisements thus hopefully avoiding potential purchasers calling in on the off chance during normal working hours. There is also the benefit that CENTRAL BUSINESS AGENCY can save much of your valuable time by ensuring that applicants are in a financial position to purchase before viewing.

If you are interested in receiving a free open market valuation in the strictest of confidence then please fully complete the form below and we shall contact you to arrange an appointment:
