Landlords and Asset Managers:

  • Are you investing capital in a new retail business and approving the assignment of a lease to new retailers all the time?
  • And if you are honest, the due diligence on those deals mostly suck?

It is understandable, because the actual business of retailing is not your core business and there is pressure to do the deal. In fact you need a damn good reason to knock it back. (It is tricky  working with small business.)

As an ex-centre manager, I KNOW the deal.


How good would it be if you can do that deal, and be certain that the business proposition is viable?

That the risks have been professionally assessed, giving you every chance of being successful and NOT throwing your money down the drain?


Landlords and Property Managers

  • We offer a Retail Lease Due Diligence Advisory Service.

We efficiently and quickly assess the risks AND manage the administrative documentation for lease assignments that enbables you to process the deals quicker and be justified in your final approval AND be better informed with new deals in order to do BETTER deals.



Yearone Solutions is a division of Ganador Management Solutions. Ganador was founded in 2006 by the current directors with the aim of finding a way to help SME retailers to improve their performance. To that end, Ganador worked multiple blue chip clients (suppliers, brands, media, landlords, franchisors) to create opportunities for their customers (those SME retailers) to benefit from their knowledge and resources.


Over the years of helping struggling retailers – with mixed success – a few things emerged:

  1. The reasons for business failure almost always comes from a limited set of mistakes.
  2. Those mistakes are easily avoided, but incredibly hard to rectify when you have no money to re-invest. (You need deep pockets for a retail tunaround.)

It stands to reason that the most sustainable and the smartest approach is to start the business on the right path from the very beginning.

And from that insight, YEARONE SOLUTIONS was born as a dedicated Retail Advisory Service focussing on people starting out in retail, hospitality, services (consumer facing businesses).
