Commercial Property 


The smooth running of business premises is key to the successful operation of many companies. 
 
Our team of commercial property experts understands this, and will ensure your interests are properly protected. All matters are handled smoothly and efficiently, and we’ll help you achieve your objectives on time, however tight your deadlines.
 
The team handles the complete spectrum of commercial property issues, including the acquisition and disposal of all types of commercial property; development land; leasing and investment property.
 

Buying and selling a commercial property

 
Buying and selling business premises can be a complex process, and receiving the right advice is crucial. We will advise you on everything from the negotiation of the purchase price - which includes securing advice from surveyors and structural or environmental engineers where necessary – completing searches and pre-contract enquiries, providing advice on planning related matters and building use; drafting contracts; ensuring you are aware of all relevant rights, reservations, covenants and conditions; as well as advising on funding and VAT issues.
 

Leases

 
The repercussions of not fully understanding your obligations can be very costly. We have particular expertise in acting for landlords and tenants throughout the UK in relation to leases on all types of commercial property, advising on areas including the length of the term, rent and rent reviews, break clauses, obligation to repair, alterations, improvements, and formal notices. 
 

Development Land

 
We act for both property developers acquiring land and clients selling land for development, advising on important planning and environmental issues; on the method of acquisition and disposal; and on the specialist funding that often goes with such transactions. Our close links with building surveyors, planning and environmental consultants and structural engineers mean we can ensure you receive the right advice from specialists in their field.
 

Investment Property 

 
The relative high return from investment property has made it an attractive investment.
We are experienced in helping clients who buy and sell commercial and residential investment properties, which includes securing funding. A well advised landlord can realise the full potential of an investment property, perhaps not appreciated by a previous owner.
 
The experience, quality of service and speed of delivery of our commercial property team have all contributed to our excellent reputation in this area. We work with small, self-managed businesses and mid-sized companies in the local area and wider region.
