Our Services & Sectors:

Commercial Property

The commercial markets have peaked and fallen, but the properties remain. Thornes Chartered Surveyors are able to provide specialist advice in the strategic review of a properties potential, by working with existing tenants or by the introduction and creation of new and enhanced rent receipts
