Sales & leasing

Graves Son & Pilcher offer guidance on all aspects of a property transaction, beginning with an in-depth consultation and inspection of the premises to provide an accurate valuation.

We then devise a bespoke marketing campaign which includes agent and occupier mailings, drawing on market intelligence to contact potential occupants. Advertising, property portals and prominent sale boards are used alongside our own website and window displays. The Graves Son & Pilcher offices are in a prime city centre location on the Old Steyne, allowing properties maximum exposure.

Our team works closely with solicitors throughout the process to protect our clients’ interests and to achieve a successful completion at the earliest opportunity.


Strategic advice in acquiring commercial property is essential. Without a professional agent, it can be a long and frustrating process to find suitable space and occupiers may subsequently encounter liabilities which could have been avoided or mitigated. 

An agent with good contacts and detailed market knowledge can provide a comprehensive report of property options. At Graves Son & Pilcher, we are often aware of property available to let before it “goes live.” 

With a full understanding of your search criteria, we can identify and secure premises on your behalf, managing the whole process and leaving you to focus on your business. As well as advising you on legislation, we can determine a landlord’s motives in letting the space and negotiate the best terms.
