Estate and lettings agent targets commercial market

Connells, the estate and lettings agent, is set to extend its EPC service from the residential market into the rental and commercial sector.

The firm will also provide Single Survey requirements for Scottish properties.

Connells Survey & Valuation, the EPC accreditation arm of Connells, said the transition into the commercial sector was a logical step.

“Our existing relationships with lenders, HIP providers and agents underline the strength of our business in residential markets, so it will be great to extend this further and work alongside professionals in these new sectors,” said managing director, Ross Bowen today.

The group said that specialisation has helped it keep costs and delivery time down.

In most cases it was able to supply residential HIPs within two days, said Bowen who forecast the rental and commercial proposition would be similar.
