CASE STUDY > Notional Rent Assessment

Hillview Surgery, Middlesex

BW Healthcare Surveyors achieve another increase in Notional Rent reimbursement for a long-term client, Hillview Surgery in Middlesex.

Approach

Our specialist primary care team helped Hillview Surgery appeal against their latest CMR6 (current market rent proposal) from the NHS. We undertook a free desk top assessment based on the information we held on file from previous inspections before instigating a challenge to the Notional Rent on behalf of the practice.

Through the course of professional and constructive discussions with the District Valuer (appointed by the NHS) we were able to successfully negotiate an increase in reimbursement in the following key areas;

  • Increased the unit rate (£ per sqm) applied to approved reimbursable space
  • Increased the car parking rate (£ per space) of spaces eligible for reimbursement

Conclusion

Our specialist team also managed to resolve the dispute and secure an agreement for their latest review in just 13 working days of the Business Manager notifying the NHS of the challenge to the Notional Rent assessment!

Our professional representation has so far resulted in a 9% increase in notional rent reimbursement for the practice over 3 separate reviews.

Joy Bennett, Business Manager at Hillview Surgery was extremely happy with the outcome;

The service provided by BW Healthcare Surveyors has been exceptional. In the past we used another company who took over a year to resolve the challenge. BW Healthcare Surveyors are extremely professional and efficient. Their communication is excellent and they have provided help and guidance throughout the process. I would highly recommend them.

The increases that we have achieved over the years not only boosted the surgery’s annual income but is also highly likely to have increased the investment value of the premises.
