Attendees had the opportunity to hear the latest developments and pick up practical tips and advice on construction, property litigation, planning and commercial property matters from Thrings’ panel of speakers.
Taking their place at the dais were associate solicitor Natalia Sokolov, who spoke about collateral warranties and third party rights in the construction industry, and planning solicitor Fred Quartermain, who outlined the pitfalls and opportunities surrounding permitted development rights in the context of the General Permitted Development Order.
They were joined by Matthew Smith who spoke about tenants’ applications for consent to assign, alter and change use of premises, and his fellow associate, Dan Langan, who provided practical tips on flexible leasing for corporate occupiers.
Junior surveyors representing many of the main surveying practices in Bristol, including Hartnell Taylor Cook, Malcolm Hollis, CBRE, Easton Bevins, Cushman and Wakefield, Colliers, GVA, Alder King and Knight Frank, attended the seminar which concluded with drinks, networking and an opportunity to discuss key themes with Thrings’ team of experts
The junior surveyors’ seminar marks the start of what is set to be a busy period of events for the Commercial Property team.
Later this month, Thrings and Bristol Business News will showcase the Cargo scheme at Wapping Wharf at the inaugural ‘Bristol Property Pop Ups’, a series of exciting events to celebrate the city’s changing landscape.
This will be followed in the spring by the ninth running of the firm’s annual commercial property seminars which in previous years has attracted more than 150 building surveyors, property agents, planning consultants and public authorities to the firm’s offices in Bristol and Bath.
