What we do

Expert advice for single or multiple property disposals and acquisitions

Our Commercial Agency team advises on the letting, selling and acquisition of property both for occupation and investment. For tenants, we advise on the subletting and assignment of their leases and acquisition of new premises.

If you are looking to purchase or sell property as an investment, our specialists can advise on where best to buy and the best strategy to adopt in order to maximise sale value.

We have strategically located offices across the country and are specialists in all types of property including Offices, Industrial and Retail, and have dedicated teams that focus on Healthcare and Education.


  • “We have used Aitchison Raffety for over 15 years, selling buildings, new leases, negotiating lease extensions, dilapidations and business rate reductions. Their advice and professionalism is excellent, and their ability to see through and smooth over a transaction stands them out from the crowd.”

  • “When we considered a purchase of a relatively complicated property in Hertfordshire, we were recommended to seek professional advice and spoke to Aitchison Raffety who put together a team between building surveyors, planners and general commercial surveyors together with recommending appropriate solicitors.  We obtained excellent guidance at every stage leading to a successful purchase which we are now excited about taking this project forward with further advice from Aitchison Raffety.”

  • “Aitchison Raffety was instructed in respect of a substantial dilapidations claim on a Listed property in Guildford where the landlord’s initial claim was significant. They provided a Section 18 valuation report and support, together with general liaison with the property team and advising solicitors. Their handling of the matter and communication was excellent throughout and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”

  • “We have been delighted with the quality of service and commitment shown by Aitchison Raffety, helping us to secure new tenants for our office building.  Aitchison Raffety advised us on an improved strategy to enable us to really maximise our potential to attract new tenant enquiries. The local knowledge, market presence and expertise of their Agency team was instrumental in securing these new lettings. We would have no hesitation recommending Aitchison Raffety.”

  • “We have worked in partnership with Aitchison Raffety for many years due to their professionalism and their ability to yield the best results. From lettings to lease renewals, from rent reviews to dilapidations, we are delighted to work alongside them and always appreciate their advice.”
