Property acquisitions & disposals

Our commercial property solicitors make buying or selling commercial property straightforward, and ensure a smooth transaction.

Buying and selling commercial property

Commercial property can be an office, industrial or retail site, come with a freehold or long leasehold, and you may want to buy or sell as an occupier, investor or developer. These are just a few of the potential issues involved in a process that can seem daunting – but a skilled and experienced solicitor can help you make sense of it all.

We’ll take on the task

You’ll need somebody to guide you through every step, starting with investigating titles and approaching owners. You’ll also need somebody who is comfortable dealing with other professionals, such as surveyors, banks, planning consultants and accountants.

We offer all this. But the key thing we do is give you a seamless and personalised service that is focused firmly on securing the result you set out to achieve.

How we can help you

We provide a fully integrated service for every aspect of buying and selling commercial property. For example, if the transaction is part of a wider corporate scheme, we can call on the expertise of our corporate and employment teams.

We also work closely with you to identify which aspects of your transaction take priority. Beyond this, we work with your surveyors to anticipate any potential problems, which helps to ensure the project goes ahead on time and with minimal fuss.

We work with property investors

If you’re looking for somebody to manage your property portfolio, national or international, look no further. We already have several major portfolios under our wing, and we handle all the related issues such as asset securitisation, transfers to pension schemes, and buying and selling at auction.

We work with property developers

If you’re a developer, we offer help at every stage, including buying sites for immediate development, acting on long-term option agreements, and managing joint venture schemes.

We’ve handled agreements for clients from North London, Essex and Hertfordshire up to North Cambridgeshire and beyond. We’ve also worked on long-term strategic schemes worth millions, and on much smaller projects involving just a few units.

You can trust in us

Whatever your circumstances, we tailor our service to your needs. Everything we do is geared towards helping you buy or sell quickly and efficiently, which helps to make the most of the value of your transaction.

We’re always happy to discuss your plans and ambitions at any point, even if they change. The important thing is that we listen to what you want and give you our expert legal advice based on that. But you can be confident that we’ll always be honest with you, and we’ll always let you know exactly where you stand.

If you want to find out more, we offer a free initial consultation. So call us now for a chat, tell us what you need and we’ll let you know how we can help.
