Commercial Property Law

Commercial property law is a minefield for the unwary and the ill advised. Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, we are here to help you avoid costly legal mistakes. Read our guide to commercial property if you require more information.

How we can help

We can advise and deal with on your behalf, the buying and selling of all manner of commercial properties both freehold and leasehold. Whether it is a lease at an annual rent of only a few thousand pounds or a multi-million pound sale or redevelopment, you can benefit from the experience of our Commercial Property Law team.

Commercial property leases

There is no such thing as a standard property lease. They range in size from a few pages to a hundred or more and must cover as far as possible, every aspect and eventuality that may arise during the term of the lease.

For landlords, a modern well-drawn lease can considerably enhance the value of your investment, discourage dispute, and protect your interests. In addition to ensuring the terms of the lease meet your needs, we can also advise you on the legal rights which you have, irrespective of the terms of the lease.

From a tenant’s perspective, leases can be both harsh and onerous and do not always mean what they say. Sadly all too often the money saved in not taking professional advice is lost many times over as the price of ignorance.  Let us help you avoid a costly mistake and reassure you about what you are signing

The preliminary negotiations can make a huge difference to the deal eventually struck between the parties. A sound knowledge of the areas of negotiation at the start of the transaction can make all the difference to protect your interests. It is never too early in the process to take legal advice.
