Property & Estate

Property And Estate

Understanding your estate needs and unlocking potential is a core part of what we do.

We will help you future-proof your estate, helping you to ensure it does what you need it to do now, as well as in the future. And we will work with you to optimise the value of your estate by working with you to develop it, helping you draw down capital funding and finance and making sure you get the best from your assets. We have a proven track record.

We can help merging colleges understand how best to rationalise complex estate. We can also help colleges that are financially challenged to unlock the value of the estate to support operational finance and provide the breathing space you need to deliver your recovery plans.

Our philosophy is simple: We are on your side. We act for and with you to understand your needs, assess your aspirations and optimise return on investment, minimise risk and ensure your estate is an asset, not a liability.

We are also expert in estate development finance, whether its through public sector capital grants on private sector equity or loan finance.

We have worked with Just Ask Scarlett over a number of years on drawing down funding for capital projects. They really understand what makes funders tick, ensuring we give them what is needed to maximise our chances of success. They are an invaluable part of our team now.


Just Ask Scarlett helped us to develop a forward-thinking and robust estate strategy, which finds a balance between future flexibility and sector-leading facilities, helping us to ensure the sustainability of the College, moving forward.


Just Ask Scarlett has proved invaluable in negotiating the sale of one of our campuses. So much so, that we have commissioned them to act on a second disposal. They think clever, optimising land values and doing the hard work and negotiation for us. I would highly recommend them if you are thinking of selling or developing any part of your estate.


Mark has the ability to see what each side needs out of a situation and come up with solutions that meet everyone's needs. I am not sure how he does it, but it works...


What sets apart the service provided by Just Ask Scarlett is the value added to the leadership, management and governance of our College when developing complex, long-term estates solutions whilst dealing with a myriad of stakeholders, during a period of continuing austerity and significant structural change.
