Head of Commercial Property. Partner.

Steven Macdermott

I have worked in the property industry as a surveyor for the past eighteen years and specialise in commercial property. I started my career at Jaggard Baker where I qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 2010. I was then tempted by the bright lights of London to work for Deloitte in their Real Estate Business. Having quickly risen to Assistant Director, I returned to the Home Counties to continue working in commercial property and set up MacLand with Greg Rowland.

I am a Partner at Jaggard Macland LLP, which was formed from a merger between Jaggard Baker and MacLand in November 2019.

In my spare time I enjoy all forms of sport including football, tag rugby, skiing, wakesurfing and I've recently signed up for my first Hyrox event.

Client Reviews:

Case Design Limited, High Wycombe, Bucks. Acquisition of Industrial Building

“Steven, we are deeply indebted to you for all your assistance in acquiring our new premises. The timescale was incredibly tight and without your efforts we would have had to close the business down. The end result was remarkable – a much better building 30% larger at a significantly lower cost and with a very helpful rent free period.”

Andrew Hounsell, Managing Director at County Financial, Beaconsfield, Bucks. Dilapidations Claim
"Steven, thank you so much for your brilliant work. We feel very blessed to have benefitted from your services and it has been such a weight off my shoulders to hand over the negotiations to you. Your expertise has been invaluable and we will certainly be in contact should we ever need your help again."
