The nature of retail and the face of the high street are changing; in the age of increasing internet shopping and with the uncertainty of Brexit, retailers are looking for flexibility, limitations on outgoings and market-led advice; landlords are looking for certainty of rental stream, good tenant mix and assurances on guarantees.
