We knew when our 21,000ft² building on Sherwood Park became vacant that we were setting our Marketing Agents a tough task in asking them to identify a strong company to let the entire building. Having worked with FHP over the years we knew that they would do their utmost to achieve our aspirations and by letting the entire building to Countrywide Surveyors they have done exactly that. FHP agreed terms in a competitive environment and worked alongside our Legal Advisors to conclude a very satisfactory outcome.

A big 'thank you' to Cameron Butler, for preparing the valuation of our land and buildings for our year-end accounts (our first as an Academy).  He was more than willing to come out at the end of the school day, when pupils were off-site so that he could get around the site much more easily, and was very approachable and friendly but professional.  He was aware that we were working to a tight time-scale and produced the report and valuation very promptly.  I would certainly recommend him to other newly converted academies

We have been delighted with the level of service that Jessica has provided when looking at the Business Rates for Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service. Over the last 18 months they have assessed each station, sorted discretionary reliefs from Councils, and appealed many of the Rateable Values. The savings from these appeals and associated auditing to date total near on £100,000 which is very welcome news in what are very austere times for many Fire and Rescue Services. At each step of the process we have been kept informed of progress and savings achieved, and I would not hesitate to recommend the Business Rates team to others as efficient, knowledgeable and dedicated in helping their clients save money"

We would like to thank Cameron Butler for his invaluable work, advice and expertise during the compulsory purchase of our home and family butchers business. Recommended by our accountant, Cameron was outstandingly professional and, despite numerous challenges from the County Council, remained resolute during the long and technical negotiations. Without his dedication it would have been almost impossible to have undertaken these negotiations and continue to run our business. The efforts of Cameron minimised the stress of this process, for which we and our family will be forever grateful.  We would have no hesitation in recommending FHP to people in the future, as would our accountant and solicitor.

As a recently converted Academy Trust, we required a firm to provide a factual valuation for the balance sheet and reinstatement values for insurance purposes. At the outset Cameron provided a professional and informed service. The actual visit to inspect the Trust’s three school sites was non-intrusive and  carried out with the schools full of students and staff on site. Post visit, Cameron checked a number of points to ensure the factual correctness of the final product and kept us informed of the progress of the report up to its final production. I would like to thank Cameron for all his support and making another requirement of Academy conversion seem uncomplicated and reducing my stress levels.
