  • Stiles Harold Williams’ newly qualified surveyor Fabienne Barratt reflects on her journey through the APC

  • 22 June 2017
  • Going through the APC process you hear all sorts of horror stories from those who find out you are on the programme and they are ready with their advice, which is all too often in the “do as I say, not as I did” category. For almost every Chartered Surveyor I have met, both in SHW and outside of the firm, passing the APC is one of their greatest achievements. Every one of them has been able to tell me about the moment they found out they had passed, which is indicative of just how much of an achievement it is to pass this qualification. I believe it is this sense of pride driving various enquiries into how you are getting on, whether you feel prepared and the sharing of their own worst moment. Everyone who spoke to me about the APC told me about their “that’s it, I’m done for” moment. At the time I remember thinking “I’m nervous enough already, why would you tell me that?” But what I learnt from this was that everyone has had that moment everyone has a point where they think they won’t be able to do it, and no one feels 100% ready when the day comes. I was fortunate in that SHW has a Graduate Training Scheme, so I had a really supportive team around me that have helped countless other candidates through this process and were there to provide guidance when I needed it. This included the organisation of specific APC training events throughout the year with talks from external speakers providing an opportunity to meet up with other APC candidates within the firm as well as having a day dedicated to the APC process. From day one I had support, from helping me to choose my competencies, to alleviating doubts that I was ready to sit and giving me that final (necessary) push to make the decision to upload my submissions and apply for the Final Assessment. Once my submissions were uploaded, SHW organised an external mock interview run by DeLever. This was such a beneficial experience for me. The feedback I received was invaluable and it provided me with a much better understanding of what to expect on the day. I also had colleagues going through the APC at the same time assuring me that I wasn’t the only one stressed/confused/nervous/fed up/ all of the above. As I built connections with other surveying firms I was able to meet up with their candidates to revise together or exchange advice received from colleagues. I found this peer-provided support was so helpful that I would urge current candidates to connect with their colleagues enrolled on the APC, or candidates from other firms. For example I joined the DeLever APC WhatsApp group, which was really good and provided access to a friendly supportive APC community.

  • A Regal performance in Queensway

  • 20 June 2017
  • Acting on behalf of the Royal China Group the London Professional team have secured rent agreements with respect to two Chinese restaurants in Queensway at substantially below the respective landlord’s revised rent demands. At 84 Queensway t/a Four Seasons a June 2016 Rent Review was agreed at a revised rent equating to an uplift of 4.75% over the five-year review period. On the opposite side of the road at 13 Queensway t/a Royal China, a September 2014 rent review was restricted to a 12% uplift over the five-year review interval.

  • Another Chinatown restaurant success for tenants

  • 20 June 2017
  • Acting on behalf of the iconic Gerrard’s Corner Chinese restaurant, Nigel Amos from the London Professional team of SHW has negotiated the rent review transaction at this famous eatery effective from June 2016. Situated at the corner of Gerrard Street and Wardour Street, Nigel came under intense pressure from the landlord to pay ‘top dollar’ for the corner site and extensive negotiations ensued. This involved careful analysis of nearby lettings that on closer examination were not all they initially seemed to portray as evidence. The net result was an increase in rent over the five-year review period of 15%. The client said they were ‘very pleased with the result and could not have achieved the outcome without the help of Nigel Amos.’
