RICS Corporate Occupiers Survey

Survey of real estate decision makers in large UK businesses on their real estate strategy, decision-making and outsourcing, on behalf of RICS, EY and Savills.

  • Two in five real estate decision-makers expect their business to own or rent more UK property in the next five years, with the highest levels of growth projected in the South East and the Midlands.
  • When looking for a property, cost, and size and quality are most likely to be cited as important in making a decision. Location-based factors are next most likely to be cited as important, with just less than half citing local workforce quality and availability, and two in five citing proximity to transport links and amenities.
  • Amongst the population surveyed, incidence of outsourcing real estate and facilities services is expected to grow, with one in ten saying their business will outsource more over the next three years and just 4% saying less.
