What we do
- Freehold and leasehold acquisitions and disposals
- Subletting – a contract used to rent commercial property from a tenant rather than direct from a landlord or owner
- Overage agreements – designed to ensure that the seller of a property receives an additional payment from the buyer.
- Property development
- Infrastructure agreements
- Exclusivity agreements
- Joint venture agreements
- Conditional contracts and options – when an agreement or contract is conditional upon a specific event, but the date at which it will happen is uncertain. A common example is a contract conditional upon the buyer getting planning permission
- Planning matters
- Lease negotiations – effective negotiation could help you get lower monthly rent, a break clause, a rent-free period or renovation of a premises before occupation
- Plot sales- both freehold and leasehold
- Rent reviews – allow for the adjustment of commercial rents
- Assignments – allow a transfer of an existing lease by the current tenant to a new tenant with the consent of the landlord
- Acting on break clauses within property contracts- allows either the tenant or landlord to end the tenancy agreement during the fixed term
- Lease renewals-advice on setting up a new lease agreement
- Surrenders – when the tenant’s interest is transferred back to the landlord and both parties accept that it will be ended, the lease is surrendered
- Tenant lease portfolio management – we can help you maximise your property portfolio, however you use your premises
- Rights of way/easements – having an easement on your property means that a third party has permission to use your land for a particular purpose. The most common easements are right of way or a right to light
We also act for landlords and tenants. If you would like to find out more about this service, please see our Landlord & Tenant page.
Your journey through the legal process
You may not be aware of how the process of enlisting commercial property lawyers works. Our procedure is streamlined – to provide you with complete clarity, we’ve outlined the steps below:
The first stage is to get in touch and speak to a member of our team.
Our first priority is to establish the nature and scope of your commercial property project.
We will then proceed with the first steps in our partnership – you will then receive a breakdown of our costs and a pack of documents.
From this point onwards, we will work closely with you to ensure that all of your organisation’s commercial property objectives are met in the most commercially sound manner.
