Our Commercial Property Services
We offer a full range of commercial property services for individuals and businesses in London and beyond, allowing us to provide a comprehensive service for all types of commercial property.
Purchasing and selling business premises
When buying or selling business premises, it is important to go through the correct legal process so that the sale goes ahead smoothly and that you are not caught out with any costly surprises afterwards.
Our commercial conveyancing solicitors in London have acted for business of all sizes and types, helping them to buy and sell business premises smoothly and cost-effectively. We know all of the common issues that can hold up a sale or end up costing you more and what you need to do to minimise those risks and protect your commercial interests.
Granting and taking commercial leases
A large percentage of commercial property is taken by businesses on a leasehold basis. Getting a fair leasehold agreement in place is essential to maintain a positive relationship between freeholder and leaseholder, while minimising the chances of any problems occurring.
Our experienced commercial property solicitors can help with:
- Drafting, reviewing and amending leases
- Break clauses
- Lease extensions
- Commercial lease disputes
Granting and taking legal charges
Commercial property is often used as security for a loan, or against an outstanding debt that cannot immediately be repaid. If you need to use a property of your own for security, or place a charge on property owned by someone who owes you a debt, we can ensure this is done in a legally correct way that protects your interests.
Where necessary we can apply for a court order on your behalf to impose a charge on the property of someone who owes you a debt, allowing you to recover money owed to you if all other options have failed.
Purchase and sale of a business as a going concern
When purchasing or selling a business as a going concern, there will often be business premises that form an essential part of the deal. Our commercial real estate solicitors can assist you with the entire process of buying or selling a business, including making sure that all property and other assets connected to the business are correctly handled.
Acting for developers and setting up new developments
We regularly act for property developers, helping to ensure the smooth acquisition of development sites as well as handling the sale of finished property. We understand the importance of speed and cost-effectiveness when dealing with property developments and will take all necessary steps to protect your commercial interests.
Advice for Landlords/ Management Companies
While renting property can be a sound investment, there are also a number of issues that can arise for landlords and management companies that can cost you time, money and stress to resolve.
Our commercial property solicitors in London have the experience and expertise to offer fast, effective solutions to any issues that arise, as well as offering proactive advice to minimise the possibility of future problems.
We can help with a wide range of landlord and tenant issues, including:
- Drafting, reviewing and amending tenancy agreements
- Landlord and tenant disputes
- Commercial tenant evictions
- Rent arrears recovery
Deeds of Covenants
Deeds of Covenant are an important part of the conveyancing process when selling the leasehold on a property. This creates a direct contract between the person buying the leasehold and the freeholder, giving the freeholder security that the new leaseholder agrees to comply with the terms of the existing lease.
Deeds of Covenant are often used to ensure that the new leaseholder agrees to pay the required service charges to the freeholder to cover maintenance and repair of the property’s structure and any communal areas.
