Our commercial property legal services

Buying and selling commercial property

Our commercial conveyancing team can assist with all types of property transactions, including buying and selling leasehold and freehold business premises and investment properties.

We will work hard to make the process as smooth and efficient as possible, always taking into account any deadlines you need to meet. We can also advise on the terms of any property finance you are offered.

Commercial leases & licences to occupy

We regularly act for business tenants and commercial landlords in the negotiations of leases, as well as alternatives such as licences to occupy. Our commercial property lawyers can make sure the terms match your needs and that you are fully aware of your rights and obligations.

We can also assist with lease renewals, terminating leases (including through the use of break clauses) and dealing with any issues that arise during the court of a commercial tenancy.

Property development

Our commercial property solicitors assist with both small and large-scale property developments, providing expert assistance with issues including site acquisition and assembly, development finance, construction contracts and selling completed units.

We will work closely with you through every stage of the development process, helping to foresee any potential issues and put in place proactive measures to avoid unnecessary delays. We can also assist with issues around regulatory compliance and meeting planning requirements.

Property finance

It is essential to secure finance on the right terms for your short and long-term interests. Our team can review the terms of any property finance deal you are considering and talk you through details without unnecessary legal jargon.

We can also make sure you are fully aware of the potential risks involved in any particular finance deal and will always be entirely honest and realistic about whether we think a particular deal is a good idea for your circumstances. 

Business relocations

Whether you need to move to new premises in the local area or are looking to relocate further afield, our team can guide you through every stage of doing so. We can assist with selling your existing premises or terminating your lease, acquiring new premises, securing finance and any other legal matters you need assistance with.

We can also advise on any employment law issues related to business relocation.

Property portfolio management services

Our commercial property lawyers act for a number of clients in relation to the management of their property portfolios. We can provide practical assistance to help you efficiently manage your portfolio, helping to avoid potential problems and find effective solutions to any issues that cannot be forestalled.

Our expertise includes dealing with statutory compliance and contractual requirements, liaising with tenants, acquiring and disposing of properties, raising finance and resolving property disputes. At all times, we will act to maintain and enhance the value of your portfolio and its income while keeping you legally protected.

Commercial property disputes

Disputes over commercial property can cost your business time, money and energy to resolve, as well as potentially derailing your plans. Our litigation team is highly experienced in dealing with all types of commercial property disputes and excels in finding fast, effective solutions that match our clients’ business interests.

We will always tailor our approach to your priorities. In many cases, we can resolve commercial property disputes quickly and cost-effectively through negotiation and alternative dispute resolution, allowing you to avoid the cost, time and uncertainty associated with court proceedings.

Our commercial property pricing

We understand the importance of good budgeting when dealing with commercial property, so we work hard to keep our pricing competitive while maintaining the very best standards of legal advice and client service.

We are able to offer fixed fees for some matters, where a price will be agreed in advance. Where this is not possible, we will tell you the hourly rates charged by everyone we expect to work on your case and give a realistic estimate of your likely overall costs.
