Bruntwood Expands Its Serviced Office Portfolio In Manchester

Bruntwood, the North of England commercial property company, has announced that it is to open up a new floor of serviced office space at Manchester’s Centurion House on Deansgate. This will take its serviced office portfolio to over 1800 desks across Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham.

The new suites will provide additional cost efficient office space for small to medium sized businesses who want to be located on Deansgate, a high profile location right in the heart of the Manchester city centre. Customers in the newly developed space will also benefit from contemporary communal areas, onsite meeting rooms and a dedicated customer service team.

The building on Deansgate is owned and managed by Bruntwood and combines two floors of serviced office space alongside nine floors of conventional office space and ground floor meeting rooms.

Andrew Butterworth, Bruntwood’s Sales Director commented; “Demand for our serviced offices has always been strong. Our fully integrated office buildings where our serviced and conventional office customers work side by side have proven very successful, particularly in the current climate. This is because we can offer customers the ability to take short term serviced office space and then move into longer term conventional offices within the same building.”

The new serviced office suites will be available for occupation from May and the suites will be available to view from April.

Bruntwood currently proactively own and manage 90 properties across the cities of Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham, which are home to over 1,000 companies.

Bruntwood Reports An Increase In Turnover Of 11.5% To £97m And Operating Profit Of 9.5% To £12.6m

North of England commercial property company Bruntwood has filed its latest set of accounts for the financial year 2009, reporting an increase in turnover of 11.5% to £97m and operating profit of 9.5% to £12.6m.

Chris Oglesby, Bruntwood’s chief executive, said: “Against a very difficult economic backdrop, I am proud of the way our team at Bruntwood have, once again, responded in delivering another very good set of results. Property values may have fallen in response to the investment market but the underlying fundamentals in our business continue to improve, as evidenced by the 9.5% increase in profit before tax up to £12.6m.”

Further to a full revaluation of the portfolio by Knight Frank in September 2009, Bruntwood’s fixed assets now stand at £912m. This figure is down seven per cent on last year and is the first time in the company’s 30 year history it has seen a reduction in its property values.

Chris Oglesby said: “Whilst a drop in our property values was not unexpected, our conservative approach to valuations at the top of the market has meant they have held up exceptionally well. Our September year end was at, what we believe, to be the bottom of the market. Since then, there has been a considerable rally in property values and I am confident we will see the value of Bruntwood’s portfolio grow again in our 2010 financial year. That said, more important to us as a business is income, the true value that we are creating via the lettings we achieve. In this respect, the business remains incredibly healthy with rental income being 216% of our interest costs.

“Our performance through the economic downturn, allied to the feedback we get from our customers and business partners, reinforces our belief that we have a great business model and a great team. 2010 is likely to be a year when Bruntwood start to invest again in expansion and we look forward to the year confident and enthusiastic with, as ever, our customers at the heart of everything we do.”

US Loan Auditors Applauds California Attorney General Jerry Brown’s Crack Down on Phony Loan Audit Scammers

US Loan Auditors announced today that they are endorsing California Attorney General Jerry Brown’s crack down on “phony loan audits” and “loan modification” scam artists by warning California families that scammers are out to steal their hard earned homes and money.

“It is a shame that people would setup a storefront and call themselves a foreclosure relief agency just to steal from local families,” said Shane Barker, one of the founders of US Loan Auditors. “It is absolutely critical that consumers do their research into the company they are working with and extensively check references before assuming a firm has experts. We have never done, and will never do loan modifications. Our audits are specially designed for attorneys to take right into court.”

US Loan Auditors is not a loan modification firm, but instead is specialized in using the science of forensic loan auditing to help victims of predatory lending, and their legal counsel, uncover violations during the loan documentation or loan origination process. Customers can rest assured that the principals of the firm have extensive mortgage industry experience and the company backs up its expertise by offering a free upfront consultation for their forensic audit services.

“Our audits are not performed with a loan modification in mind,” Barker said. “We do the forensic loan audit to help give homeowners the leverage they need in court, not for a loan modification. Beware of companies promising big results after illegally collecting a large upfront fee.”

Along with a large upfront fee, scam artists may request the transfer of the title of the house to the “rescue” firm; making the mortgage payments to the scammer instead of the lender; and even prey on people that sign paperwork without carefully reading the documents or having an attorney review them.

“Unfortunately, some people are becoming victims twice,” Barker said. “Please be aware of the warning signs of a scam artist and take steps to protect yourself, your home and your family from further risk.”

Jay Suites, the Premier Provider of Flexible, Luxury NY Executive Office Space, Expands to Two Midtown Locations

Reflecting growing demand for Modern, Flexible Turn-Key Office Spaces, Jay Suites amplifies its offering for affordable all-inclusive office space package for small business seeking space in Manhattan.

Jay Suites, the Premier Provider of Flexible, Luxury NY Executive Office Space, Expands to Two Midtown Locations

Jay Suites, a leading provider of luxury office space, recently expanded to another floor at its Grand Central location and has opened a new location on plush Fifth Avenue. Situated in the heart of the big apple, both centers offer an exceptional identity to any business, with solutions ranging from fully-furnished office space which include a receptionist, conference rooms, and break rooms with complete kitchen facilities to other business services.

The firm bills itself as more than an executive business center. The growing executive suites firm promises to be there to support your business with a hand-picked team of trained, experienced staff. The serviced office space provider taps into the expertise of architects, contractors, designers, electricians and consultants to make its executive suites both accessible and very attractive. After interviewing the founders, Jack and Juda Srour, it became evident that they understand the early challenges facing business owners (they are one themselves) and have set out to offer an all-inclusive, affordable office space.

“What we saw in the market was a need – a need for space suitable for small businesses,” Jack Srour told WPIX’s Jeff Appel. They basically will provide everything a small business could need – from the furniture, utilities, and 24/7 access to high speed internet, VoIP Cisco Phones and a receptionist to greet clients and answer your phone calls in your company name. Plus, their meeting rooms are equipped with teleconferencing, surround sound, and state-of-the-art presentation systems.

A big benefit to leasing an executive office space from Jay Suites is the low initial capital costs. Instead of paying contractors to build out a space, paint, carpet, cool and heat, wire and put plumbing in place, everything is already done for you. In addition, clients receive one simple bill which even includes you phone and internet service. Best of all though, it is turn-key so that clients can sign up one day and move in the next day – enabling clients to focus on what’s most important – their business. For companies on a tight budget, Jay Suites offers three virtual identity plans which give clients a Manhattan address and phone number, the ability to use their gorgeous facilities and to have meetings in their conference rooms.

To get a feel for what it is to be in one of their executive suites, Metro Residential (a WPIX real estate series) asked Lindsay Fox, a partner at an executive search company, how it felt to move into a Jay Suites full time office, “Being in a space like this gives us the ability to focus on growing our company and not having to worry about the overhead of opening up a space. Normally you have to deal with the furniture the move, the receptionist, setting up the phones and internet…. we didn’t have to worry about anything.”
