Our Services


We provide estate agency and
consultancy services covering the sale, purchase and leasing of commercial property in the Isle of Man. Our commercial estate agents also advise on capital values, yields, rents and current
market conditions.


We advise property companies, financial institutions, pension funds, corporate clients, high net worth individuals and private clients on the sale, purchase and funding of commercial investment property across all sectors.


We provide independent RICS Red Book appraisals of commercial property for secured lending, probate, company accounts and stock exchange listings.

Asset management

Managing commercial property is a core activity at Chapman Chartered Surveyors. We manage some £70m worth of property in the Isle of Man and UK for clients including pension funds, property companies, developers, trusts and private investors.

Lease advisory

Restructuring a commercial lease can provide opportunity to enhance the property’s capital value or reduce the tenant’s operating costs. We provide a comprehensive range of services
including submissions to arbitrators and independent experts.

Rent review

Negotiation of rent reviews and lease renewals is a skilled area that requires knowledge of case law and statutory provisions, and a good understanding of the market. When rent reviews cannot be agreed, we can present a detailed submission to a third party determination surveyor.


Our core services include development appraisals, development management, funding advice, disposals and acquisitions, site finding and planning advice.

Pre-insolvency advice

We can provide assistance with valuations and disposal strategies to banks, financial institutions and insolvency practitioners.

Chapman Chartered Surveyors provides incisive property advice and agency services to clients in the Isle of Man and UK.


All of our professional staff are Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) qualified.  All instructions are managed by a Director, ensuring the highest possible levels of care at all times.


The lasting relationships we have formed with leading businesses and investors are testament to the service we provide.  Over 90% of our work is generated from existing or previous clients.


We are the only firm of estate agents and valuers in the Isle of Man which concentrates solely on commercial property. We have provided expert advice on commercial property matters since the company was founded in 1973.
