Thomson Snell & Passmore acts for Flint Hire & Supply

Thomson Snell & Passmore was pleased to have acted for Flint Hire and Supply Limited (Flints) in connection with its re-location to new premises at Newtons Court on the Crossways Business Park, Dartford.

Flints, the UK’s leading provider of theatrical and art department goods, committed to a 15-year lease of a 15,044 sq ft light industrial unit at a rent of £214,377 per annum.

Thomson Snell & Passmore has acted for Flints in connection with real estate matters since 2007, and completed this deal on 7 November 2023, within 6 weeks of formal instruction, to enable Flints to achieve its tight deadlines for fitting-out and then moving in for the start of 2024.

The deal was reported in the ‘Industrial’ section of ‘The Market: Deals’ section of the Estates Gazette 16 December 2023 edition.

Alex Lewsley, Real Estate Partner at Thomson Snell & Passmore comments: “It’s always valued when clients choose to keep entrusting us to assist with matters of great importance to them, and this was no different – well, apart from Flints’ new premises being literally across the road from our office in Thames Gateway!  There were critical timings to be met, to ensure the business could relocate over the Christmas break to minimise disruption to its commercial operations, and we were pleased to manage the legal process within those parameters without the clients’ position being undermined because of it during the contractual negotiations.  We wish them success and growth at their new home.”

Ben Lyle, Flints’ Managing Director, adds: “We were delighted to instruct Thomson Snell & Passmore once again to help with our relocation.  Alex and the team understood the urgency of the work and were able to meet our tight deadlines, while still providing the excellent service that we have come to expect from them.  The fact that we are now neighbours is a bonus!”
