We have recently completed a nationwide project for Speedloan Finance, operators of Albermarle & Bond and Herbert Brown.
The company, which offers pawnbroking, cheque cashing and travel money services from its 115 branches across the UK, appointed us to review and restructure the Albemarle & Bond and Herbert Brown leasehold portfolio, which comprised around 130 properties nationwide.
Our service to Speedloan Finance was delivered by our lease consultancy, building surveying, valuation and agency teams across our Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, London and Bristol offices. The team was led by head of our lease consultancy department, David Rastrick, who was responsible for securing the company favourable lease terms across its portfolio, as well as managing the delivery of property valuations and agency services.
Commenting on our work, Speedloan Finance’s head of property, Shaun Brown, said: “This was a complex instruction that we required to be completed within a set timeframe, and Sanderson Weatherall’s ability to offer multiple services across a wide geographic area made the firm ideal for this work. David and his team provided excellent regional knowledge and technical expertise, which allowed them to deliver us great results.”
Speedloan Finance’s pawnbroker companies, Albemarle & Bond and Herbert Brown, have branches throughout England, Scotland and Wales, including 13 branches in Yorkshire. Herbert Brown was founded in 1840, while Albermarle & Bond formed 31 years ago.
David Rastrick, head of our lease consultancy team, said: “Speedloan Finance’s brief required a quick response, and thanks to collaboration between our departments and regional offices we were able to deliver this project with great success.”
