Before we were introduced to SITE we thought we did pretty good property leasing deals. SITE has time and again demonstrated that we didn't always have a handle on current market knowledge and that not being property specialists means leaving money on the table.

There is also always room for improvement and there is no substitute for specialist knowledge and many years of property leasing experience. Working with SITE now means we are convinced we are getting the best deals available leveraging expert knowledge and skill to manage our portfolio. SITE has given us peace of mind and helped us streamline our business while adding to our bottom line in cost savings and expert management.

Richard Miles, Owner, 3 Wise Men.
We have been working with SITE since September 2007. In this time they have helped us deliver on an extremely ambitious store rollout programme throughout New Zealand whilst still successfully managing our extensive network property portfolio. SITE has been able to deliver a service that ensures we get the best expert advice enabling us to make the correct property decisions. The fact that SITE only acts for tenants and not the landlords of this world, ensures we get the best possible deals achievable. They have become part of our business, and while functioning as an outsourced property company, I consider them a fundamental part of our team. They understand our strategy and that enables them to drive the best possible deals and ensures that we get the right stores in the right locations.

1. New Lease

  1. Background A national retailer instructed SITE to source a store in a new catchment area. SITE identified a "new-build" retail development.
  2. Negotiation Since our client was the anchor tenant, SITE leveraged this position to negotiate extremely favourable lease terms.
  3. Outcome A tenancy incentive was achieved which equated to 3.4 years rent free based on a 7 year lease. The tenancy was also built to the tenant's full base building specification and the lease was de-risked by requiring a pre-leasing threshold for the overall development.

2. Lease Extension

  1. Background A national retailer instructed SITE to help fund refurbishment works for a strong-performing existing store.
  2. Negotiation Approaching the end of the tenant's existing lease, SITE negotiated an incentive payment from the landlord based on a 7.5 year extension of its current form.
  3. Outcome A tenancy incentive was achieved which equated to 8.4 months rent free and SITE also negotiated the removal of the tenant's reinstatement provisions upon final lease expiry.

3. Lease Expiry and Surrender of Part

  1. Background A national retailer instructed SITE to help with surrendering part of their Distribution Centre lease back to the landlord. They also required SITE to negotiate the make good obligation upon their lease expiry and exit of the site.
  2. Negotiation SITE negotiated the surrender of quarter of the space held under the lease and managed to retain the current $/sqm rental rate, then upon the lease expiry negotiated a decrease in the make good provisions and expectation of the landlord.
  3. Outcome On the surrender of the space the annual rental roll dropped by $250,212 per annum in year one. On the lease expiry make good a settlement was negotiated for $20,000 less than the landlord expectations.
