Matthew Pochin, director of Lamont Commercial, said: "Stock levels of new and good quality second-hand industrial units in our patch and the wide market of the North West are limited and we are not seeing replacement stock coming through. We seem to be at a tipping point where the enquiries that are in the market will have very limited choice. Will this then lead to pre-let and pre sale deals? We all hope so but there will have to be adjustments on land values and a hard look at building costs."
