About Us

Henry Adams Commercial offers a full range of outsourced commercial property services for individuals or businesses with property interests in the region.

Our commercial specialists are based in our Chichester office. The team comprises Chartered Surveyors, RICS registered valuers and members of the Royal Town Planning Institute. Some are also business school graduates. We work as a close knit, multi-disciplinary team using our expert knowledge to advise on a diverse range of commercial property types including urban and rural business space, office, industrial and retail space with a strong focus on Chichester high street with its unique selection of commercial units.

Unrivalled in-house expertise

In July 2012 Henry Adams acquired Cluttons Chichester office. This comprised the Cluttons Tod Miller commercial arm, formerly Tod Miller Thomas, which was one of the leading and best known commercial agents in the area and also Cluttons specialist Southern Counties planning arm. This move significantly increased the range of commercial property and planning services we could offer in house, with chartered surveyors and town planners now working side-by-side (as Henry Adams Commercial) to offer unrivalled services across the region from our offices in Chichester and Horsham.

Experience you can trust

We assist a broad range of clients with their commercial property requirements. These include private individuals, public sector organisation and corporate clients. Our clients range from Chichester District Council, The Coal Pension Fund, Development Securities Plc, Geoffrey Osborne Ltd, Handlesbanken, O2, Seaward Properties, Warner Estates Holdings Plc and West Sussex County Council.

Whatever your property interests, Henry Adams Commercial can provide you with the professional services you need to achieve your objectives.
