The Industry

At national and local level, the property industry has become much more customer focussed to ensure it meets the changing needs of its tenants. Its actions are based on a vision for the industry in which tenants are provided with the choice of flexible occupational terms and the high levels of service they need consistent with the principles of sound financial and estate management, the requirements of external investors and prevailing market circumstances.
