Specialist Advisors Limited (SA) have recently completed on the purchase of The Old School House in the Lace Market in a deal brokered by FHP Property Consultants.

SA, which provides global marketing and specialist consultancy services to the financial services industry, has created 10 new full-time jobs at its new Nottingham base, in addition to several part-time consultancy roles.

The Old School House is a typical architecturally pleasing Lace Market building accommodating 1,366ft² over 3 storeys with a mixture of original brick walls and modern high-quality office specification recently refurbished to a high standard.

Mark Tomlinson Director at FHP Property Consultants commented:

“Specialist Advisors is a welcome addition to the Lace Market and beat off some stiff competition in securing this property.

Office space in Nottingham Creative Quarter is increasingly sought after, with the area having become a hub for the creative and tech industries within the city.  Values are increasing month by month with freehold opportunities especially being snapped up by growing occupiers.  We are now at the point where we are providing advice on the viability of residential to office schemes.  Watch this space!

Stuart Anderson, CEO of SA, said:

“With clients all over the UK and overseas, it was important that we chose a location with good transport links. We also recognise that in the right surroundings employees tend to thrive. Working in a nice building with that extra bit of character, and being surrounded by quality shops and restaurants, your productivity is likely to increase.

FHP did a great job in helping us with the purchase of The Old School House, and we look forward to many happy and successful years here”.

Chris Proctor who assisted the deal commented:

“The property gained a high level of interest with a total of 6 freehold offers and 2 leasehold offers with SA achieving the accepted freehold offer well above the asking price.

It has been a pleasure to complete a deal with SA and I hope we can further our relationship with the business in the future.”
