Vacant offices and shops in the midst of a global pandemic

Vacant offices and shops in the midst
of a global pandemic

How did COVID-19 impact offices and shops in Greater Manchester? Auction Agent Property Auction House
National lockdown and the new norm that followed On 23 rd March, shops and offices closed immediately after Prime Minister Boris Johnson declared a
national emergency and ordered the entire nation to be under lockdown.

The business landscape changed overnight in the UK. It has permanently changed the way that we live and work. For better
or worse, the ‘new norm’ has impacted many businesses. It was only back in June when the lockdown measures started easing in England.
Social distancing measures Two months have passed since then. Many businesses, despite the easing of the lockdown, have yet
to return their staff to their offices and shops.

One may say that such businesses have already adapted to the new norm. Many businesses see little reason to return to the old ways in order to
comply with COVID-19 health guidelines. The impact of an economic recession Business rates and other fixed overheads continue to rack up despite business premises remaining
empty. Due to this, some businesses are running out of liquid cash to keep themselves afloat despite obtaining government grants and government-backed loans. Others have already folded and declared bankruptcy. It is clear that economic woes are far from over. UK’s GDP has already contracted by 20%, which means that we are officially in a recession.
Questions to ask ourselves How much more can the economy take from the impact of the coronavirus? Will there be further contraction in the economy? The future is looking grim, with little experts seeing any light from the end of the tunnel.

For those who own commercial properties like offices and retail shops, the question they are asking themselves is whether it is the better to sell them before the economy crashes even more?

Do you own an empty commercial property?

Are you having to pay business rates despite it being empty?
