Andrew Cooper MRICS

Professional experience, skills and areas of expertise

Andrew is a member of the Valuation & Professional team at Brasier Freeth and is based at our Kings Langley office. He has a large caseload of lease advisory instructions for landlord and tenant clients and also carries out valuations for loan security and other purposes. He takes pride in the fact that he is a fair person and will always treat others with respect. He also never misses a deadline.

He has an established track record of achieving successful outcomes for landlord and tenant clients in relation to rent reviews, lease renewals and other professional instructions. His experience encompasses client-side roles at Sally Salon Services, First Quench Retailing and City Plumbing as well as working in private practice, notably including ten years at niche firm Day and Bell where he was part of an asset management team responsible for over 3,000 retail, office, industrial and residential properties mainly in the Home Counties but also as far afield as the Midlands, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.

Clients and professional accomplishments 

Andrew has carried out valuations for a range of well known clients including Nat West, HSBC, Handelsbanken and Virgin Money as well as Hertfordshire County Council and Look Ahead, a charitable organisation that delivers mental health, learning disabilities, homelessness and young people services. In relation to lease advisory instructions he has negotiated lease renewals on behalf of Esquire Retail Limited and Howden Insurance as well as lease advisory instructions for numerous other clients, both large and small.

Andrew contributed to a very successful acquisitions programme at City Plumbing, helping to secure 9 new branches in the South East in the first year in a very competitive market. While at First Quench Retailing he was responsible for over 400 branches which included over 80 rent reviews and lease renewals per year.

Outside of work 

Andrew lives in Letchworth Garden City and has four children ranging in ages from 22 to 13. He is a long-suffering Charlton Athletic supporter and goes to home matches at The Valley whenever he can. After something of a break he now has the running bug again and can frequently be seen on the pavements of Letchworth or alongside the Grand Union Canal at Kings Langley during weekday lunchtimes.
