Leisure Property Search Service

Expert support and advice in acquiring leisure property,
development land and business opportunities

GVA's Hotels and Leisure team has a bespoke ‘Site Search’ service. The service will draw on our expert knowledge and years of experience in the leisure industry, utilising our extensive research skills and in-house databases to satisfy your expansion requirements. Whether you are looking to acquire an existing hotel or leisure business, identify potential development sites, or secure new premises, GVA has the necessary skills and expertise to fulfill your requirements and help drive your business forward.

Our new ‘Site Search’ service can be tailor-made to your specific requirements to ensure a comprehensive assessment of potential opportunities. This thorough and robust process will include:

  • Understanding Your Requirements – At the outset of your search, one of our specialist leisure professionals will contact you in order to gain a thorough understanding of your aspirations and to identify your specific search requirements. Our professional (your Contact) will have specialist knowledge of the relevant market sector in order to provide you with the best possible service and expertise, and will be your primary contact for the duration of your search.
  • Data Processing – Your Contact will subsequently liaise with the rest of the GVA's Hotels and Leisure team, who will log your requirements in our centralised database and carry out an initial check for any existing opportunities (of which we are aware) that match your requirements.
  • Monitoring Property Availability – On a weekly basis, our team monitors a wide range of data sources in order to identify new properties on the market, as well as land or property which we are aware may be coming to the market. We monitor these at a national and regional level and record all new entries into our extensive property database. Your Contact will alert you to suitable opportunities that arise.
  • Specific Requirement Search – In addition, based on your specific requirements, our team will also carry out regular weekly searches within your identified local / target area. This ensures that we achieve maximum coverage, and that all potential opportunities are identified at an early stage.
  • Identification of Potential Sites – When a potential property match is identified, our team will assess this opportunity. Subsequently, if we consider this to be suitable, your Contact will telephone you to discuss this opportunity and to agree the best way for you to proceed. Clearly, GVA's Hotels and Leisure team is well placed to assist in negotiations to acquire the property (depending on the agreed terms of our brief).
  • Continued Interest in Your Requirements – GVA will continue to monitor national, regional and local press/sources for as long as you require our assistance with your expansion and development plans.
  • Fees – GVA's fee for the Site Search service will be agreed with you at the outset.


Our team would be delighted to discuss your site requirements in more detail; and to agree an appropriate fee with you for the role.

In addition, if necessary to help you consider the suitability of a particular site, GVA's Hotels and Leisure team can provide you with planning, consulting and valuation services for a separate fee.
