Commercial Property

Whether you are buying or selling business premises or about to commit to a new lease, our friendly and approachable commercial property solicitor can help you.

Commercial property transactions are not always straightforward and often form part of a larger business plan. The transactions therefore require your solicitor not only to have the correct legal expertise but also to be commercially aware, so a practical and pragmatic solution can be achieved for you. Here at Bretherton Law, we step into your shoes to understand your business plan and your needs first, so we can ensure that the best possible contractual terms are successfully negotiated for the long term success and sustainability of your business.

Commercial transactions can sometimes be complex, prolonged and lead to frustration, especially when more than two parties are involved. We recognise that completing such a transaction within the desired timescale is very important to you, and we therefore do everything we can to meet your deadline. Where necessary, our commercial property team can meet you at your premises or outside office hours.

When we take on your matter, we will always be clear about our costs and keep you up to date on our progress. We will be sure to explain all the processes clearly and answer any queries you may have. We will keep everything on track, giving you clear timescales, eliminating delays and keeping you posted at every step.
