SEYH are delighted to be working with Paul Hammond Associates to provide properties for Meanwhile Use to Social Enterprises at no cost.
Paul Hammond Associates manage properties on behalf of landlords who are unable to let them. The properties are retail, office and light industrial.
The initiative works due to the savings a landlord can make in terms of business rates and insurance costs, a portion of which the landlord donates back to the occupying organisation to cover their costs.
The only downside is that Paul Hammond can't guarantee the length of tenancy but it is in excess of 12 months on average with 2 weeks’ notice to quit.
SEYH will list the properties on the property section of the website and twice a month list all the current vacancies in the newsletter. There will also be two deadlines a month to apply (Download an application Form Here: Property_Application.doc) and after each deadline SEYH will check the applications and choose the most suitable using the following criteria:
- Eligibility for Business Rate Relief
- Property Use
- Viability of Enterprise
- Track Record
If a relationship is brokered an invoice will be issued only at this stage.
SEYH will also have a list of prefered suppliers for complimentary services such as Furniture and Insurance.
