VARIOUS CERTIFICATES, CLEARANCES, LICENCES AND PERMITS
Health Acceptability Clearances

Industry Related Permits
We offer a Due Diligence Service to clients to do the necessary diligence (while still in negotiation of the Lease) as to whether your industry related business will be permitted to operate in those specific premises.
