Experts in saving costs on empty commercial properties
Usually 80% savings on rates
Through years of working in the Commercial Property market and as legal specialists, Lincoln and Co has a clear understanding of ways to mitigate your rates position when a property is empty. We have surveyed the market of current schemes available and developed our own scheme to offer you the best savings possible. We understand how to implement them all and the pitfalls associated with them.
However, your requirements may be different - and you may want extra services. To that end, the Lincoln philosophy is not to be all things to all people, but to partner with those that understand their business the best.
I have used Lincoln and Co for over 4 years across over 40 properties, the length and breadth of the country. They have saved the company a substantial amount and operated transparently and efficiently. Even with problem councils the team met the challenge and I did not need to get involved. Thoroughly professional.

Lincoln & Co’s rate-saving scheme has saved our business many thousands of pounds across 11 properties. Our admin team worked effectively with Lincoln’s admin team and all went smoothly. Highly recommended.

its simple. We will discuss your particular requirements and work out the best method for you to save rates. We will then propose the solution that best fits those requirements. If we are not the best equipped to do so we will tell you and if we know who is the best to deliver that service refer you to one of our partners.
If we are taking the rates mitigation forward we will present you with a quote and a copy of our terms and conditions. Once you are happy with those (and returned them) we will agree a start date and put the scheme in place. This usually takes a few days and once we have all the paperwork signed we take all future work off your hands.
We will contact you from time-to-time to make sure that all is OK and see if we can help with anything else.
We aim to be responsive at all times. So, should you have any concerns or worries, you can get in touch with us through our office number or your usual contact.
