“Over the past few years I have reduced the estate down to four outlets, three freeholds and one leasehold.

“The Cloud Bar in Lincoln is held on a free of tie private lease and we are looking to dispose of our interest in the Cloud Bar.

“The remaining three outlets are all based in Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire and we are looking to create new leases to suit a tenant so as to retain the freeholds within my companies existing rental portfolio that is made up of a mix of retail and residential units in Lincolnshire.

“Six years ago I started up Kurnia Licensing Consultants and what started as a hobby, where I wanted a couple of dozen clients, has grown to over four hundred clients throughout England and most of my time is now spent on the consultancy side.

“Current changes in legislation that look set to come in this April, and further changes in the autumn, will see the consultancy requiring more of my time.”
