The paper reports on research on the role of pre-letting within office property development in the UK. Pre-letting is defined legally and the causes and consequences of pre-letting are examined. Pre-letting is discussed from the perspectives of risk, marketing, the occupiers' view and the property cycle. Senior executives from property development companies and occupier organizations were interviewed. Three detailed case studies are reported. Before construction, pre-letting can be a pivotal event effecting feasibility, subsequent events, 'actors' behaviour, the local economy and the urban environment. The results highlight the occupier's viewpoint and deepen understanding of the role of pre-letting within the wider property development process.
