How does Mothball’s unique solution work?

  • We provide a tenant company that enters into a unique, fit for purpose lease on your vacant commercial property.
  • The lease has been meticulously worded to be clear and transparent to all parties.
  • The lease is a proven legally effective device that transfers the rates liability from you to the tenant company.
  • The tenant company has the right to sole and exclusive occupation but does not occupy the premises.

“We manage a property portfolio in excess of £500 million and we’d either used or rigorously analysed most of the empty rates mitigation strategies in the market. In the six years since embarking with Mothball, they have reduced our clients’ vacant rates liability to zero and saved them over £31 million in the process.”
