JLL appoints Scottish head of lease advisory

Andrew Cartmail to lead JLL’s lease advisory team in Scotland

JLL has made a senior appointment to lead its Scottish lease advisory team with the appointment of director Andrew Cartmail. He takes over from Sandy Gray who retires in March after over 30 years with the business.

Andrew has spent 24 years in the Scottish commercial property market specialising in lease renewals, rent reviews, and restructures. He joins JLL from Cartmail Property Consultants which he has successfully run since founding in 2017.

In recent years he has restructured leases on over 1.25m sq ft of accommodation, securing over £17.5m of rental concessions for his occupier clients. Prior to founding Cartmail Property Consultants, Andrew was a senior director at BNP Paribas Real Estate where he spent 19 years, seven of which were as head of its Edinburgh office.

Andrew is an experienced rent review arbitrator and a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. As a member of the RICS’s dispute resolution panel, he is regularly appointed in the capacity of arbitrator and independent expert. 

JLL recently announced three new promotions within its Scottish business to further strengthen its offering. Tom Fothergill in rating and Geoff Ferguson in affordable housing have been promoted to associate and Hannah Done has become a senior surveyor within tenant representation and agency.

Andrew Cartmail said: “I am delighted to be joining a JLL multi-disciplined team that I have known and respected on both a personal and professional basis for many years.”

Alasdair Humphery, head of JLL in Scotland, added: “Andy will fit in well and will be a superb addition to our business in Scotland and across the UK. It’s absolutely great to be able to attract such a high-calibre specialist and I’m sure his contribution will be immediate. His arrival together with our recent promotions underlines our commitment providing our clients with the right specialists to meet their needs.”
