I joined FHP in 2014 having previously worked for a surveying practice in West London focusing on office and industrial instructions within close proximity of Heathrow Airport. I now form part of FHP’s Office and Industrial Team working from the Derby office where I focus on the sale, leasing and acquisition of office and Industrial premises in strategic locations along the M1, A50 and A38 corridor across Derbyshire and the East/West Midlands.

Current Role

  • Industrial and office leasing/sales throughout Derbyshire, Staffordshire, the M1, A50 and A38 corridors.
  • Letting agents on prime multi-let industrial estates within Derby including Raynesway Park, West Meadows Industrial Estate, Victory Park, Derby Trading Estate and Prime Industrial Park.
  • Advising clients on new industrial/warehouse development.  Key schemes include St. Modwen Park Uttoxeter, Dove Way Uttoxeter, Stud Brook Business Park Castle Donington and Forbes Park Long Eaton.
  • Letting agents on high profile single and multi-let office buildings within Derby including Cardinal Square, Pentagon House, RTC Business Park and a variety of Grade A/B office buildings on Pride Park.
  • Acquisition advice for occupiers seeking new office and warehouse premises.
  • Key clients include Clowes Developments, PMW Property, Mileway, M7 Real Estate, St. Modwen, Columbia Threadneedle, Saint-Gobain, CEG, Catalyst Capital, Nurton Developments, London and Cambridge Properties and Rotherhill Developments.


I enjoy most sports and have a particular interest in golf and snowboarding where you will find me in Courchevel or Val-d’Isère most years.  My other interest lies with motorsport and I like to keep up to date with Formula One, BTCC and Rallycross.


Commercial Estates Group have worked closely with Darran for over six months and during this time a very close professional relationship has been created. Darran’s expert market knowledge and hands on approach has resulted in achieving five lettings across our portfolio to date. His professional yet personable attitude and approach to all matters is commendable and Commercial Estates Group look forward to working with him on new projects in the future.    ”

A professional service and efficient transfer, thank you Darran at FHP.  ”

Darran at FHP was great in making the deal happen and driving it forward. Leaworks felt FHP worked remarkably well in dealing with the tenant, us and our Solicitors at every step of the process.  We would happily recommend his services to prospective landlords & tenants alike!

I would like to complement FHP in particular Darran Severn, from their initial meeting to the end I was very impressed with the speed and professionalism which they dealt with the whole process and it was certainly a breath of fresh air.

FHP did a great job finding a tenant and progressing the legals through to completion. We look forward to dealing with FHP again in the future

Right from the beginning when we put the sale out to tender we were impressed by your prompt attention and your professional presentation. We feel that you had a large input in helping us achieve the best possible sale price and indeed finally achieving an eventual completion within a very short timescale.

FHP were very easy to work with and were very helpful, providing access to the new site to allow us to prepare for the move in advance of our move in date and generally making the whole process stress free.

Darran and the team at FHP were extremely helpful in supporting us in finding the right property for our needs in the best location.

Di Litchfield – Padley Group

“We have been dealing with Mr Darran Severn @ FHP Property Consultants since 2018. We have always received best quality work, best professional advice, very quick responses and very high standard of work ethics. Never had a smallest issue or complaint. FHP Property still is our top contact when starting any new project. Would recommend 100%.”

Chintan Vyas

“I work for the Charity Sight Support Derbyshire and we recently moved to a property which was advertised with FHP. The service we received was excellent. Even with Covid restrictions in place (at the time) they were responsive and very flexible; arranging viewings on several occasions. A special thanks to Darran who really helped us finalise our arrangements and get things moving. He helped signpost to solicitors and surveyors who were able to help. I would definitely recommend FHP and use them again in the future.”

Claire Winfield – Sight Support Derbyshire

“Darran at FHP always provided us with considered and proactive advice during the sale of our building. Darran was always contactable and ensured all parties were kept informed during the sale process which was completed in a very timely manner.”

Andrew Purdue – Jackson Purdue Lever

The process of finding a facility was made considerably easier with the help and assistance of the FHP team, their commitment to user requirements and professionalism throughout the process was greatly appreciated.
