The benefit of that deal is still felt today. Since then, Ian has assisted/negotiated on other property matters in the SE1 area and his attention to detail and reliability is first class.

Claire Forbes

Your name: Antoinette TAYLOR at Taylor Bridge Legal Ltd Your testimonial: Despite using an established commercial letting agency- our commercial premises remained vacant for some 20 months. We met Ian Lim of Lim Commercial Lettings in February 2022, and by March 2022, he had more than delivered. Ian Lim had promptly organised and managed the refurbishment of our premises, and actively and efficiently marketed the premises and achieved an offer in prompt time. Ian Lim gave all of his expert time to understanding us as landlords, and to deliver. He is honest, conscientious and will evidently go above and beyond the call of duty of any commercial letting agent to achieve the desired result. We will never go to any other Commercial Letting Agent, and even wish that he was able to undertake our residential lettings. We wholeheartedly recommend Lim Commercial lettings to anyone looking for an expert in this field. A choice of which they will never regret. Your job position: Director
