A record number of residential and commercial property agents, developers and land agents attended law firm Lodders’ 2015 Property Seminar, which this year moved to a new Warwickshire venue – Riverside, overlooking the River Avon.
The eynote speaker was Jason Dalby, a chartered surveyor and managing director of Roxhill Developments, a specialist industrial and distribution developer with a track record in taking large-scale projects to completion.
In his presentation, Jason highlighted the positive and improving commercial property landscape, and highlighted key influences that he sees as contributing to how the sector has changed over the last 20 years.
George Campion, Lodders’ non-executive chairman, chaired the event and said: “The theme consistent amongst all our speakers is one of a very positive outlook for the sector, both in the Midlands and on a national scale.
“Commercial property looks set to experience sustained demand, a rise in land values and a potential increase in lease lengths. The market is buoyant, particularly in Birmingham and other major West Midlands locations.”
