Businesses need premises, which can be either owned freehold or leased. Either way, we are well experienced in the purchase and sale of commercial property.
Commercial premises have to be suitable for the business use for which they are needed. They can range from small lock shops suitable for retail, to purpose made industrial or distribution units. Planning law governs their use and a careful attention to that is a big part of our service.
Not only have buyers got to navigate the planning regulations, they have to be sure that the property does not carry burdens which would stifle the business – onerous covenants in leases, for example.
Many landlords seek to smuggle into leases other obligations which can entail expensive commitments not foreseen at the outset of the lease – around repair obligations, or service charges.
Usually commercial leases have rent review clauses – and purchasers need to be sure of what they are getting into.
Our commercial team Tim, Richard and experienced consultant Adrian Albinson, have great experience of all these matters, and will guide you through a complex maze, making sure you do not accept anything you don’t have to, and know exactly where you stand, and will stand in future.
We can’t promise that our service will be cheap – it is difficult and time consuming work. But we can say with confidence that the advice you get will potentially save a lot of needless bother and expence somewhere down the line.
