SHW appoints new director to Rating team

Daud Sadiq has joined SHW’s Rating team as Director, based in the firm’s Crawley / Gatwick office.

Joining from Colliers International where he spent seven years as Associate and Director, Daud has over 10 years’ experience as a Rating Surveyor having previously worked for the Valuation Office Agency.

Specialising in the valuation of car showrooms, office, retail and industrial properties, Daud has worked with many landlord and developer clients to mitigate and delete the rates liability on all types of vacant property, including those undergoing development.

Daud comments: “I’m pleased to be joining SHW’s rating team and the wider agency and professional specialists to assist the company’s valued clients in their ratings matters. My initial focus will be on working with landlords to claim back business rates paid on empty properties and those undergoing refurbishment. We have a window of six months to appeal for rebates and there are many substantial sums to be reclaimed across property types.”

Richard Bull, Partner and Head of Professional Services at SHW, says: “We are delighted to welcome Daud to our 200-strong team based in the South East and working across the UK. His wealth of experience, particularly in the reclaiming of rates on empty properties, will be invaluable in making savings for our existing and future clients.”
