Buying and selling a commercial property

As with buying residential property, there are a number of factors that you need to consider before you can make any final decision and this is no different when purchasing a commercial property.

What is crucial is that you have the right legal advice and support throughout the conveyancing process to help things run smoothly, efficiently and to avoid common pitfalls.

Not only will you need help with the legal side of purchasing the commercial property but you generally have to put down a larger deposit with commercial properties so you may need your solicitor to assist with any commercial property financing alongside the purchasing process.

Whether you are looking to purchase offices, a warehouse, a retail unit, or land with planning permission ready for development you will need to consider nearby development plans, authorised use, planning permissions, searches, surveys and inspections, asbestos, environmental issues, occupational leases, financing and much more.

If you are selling, we will prepare the sales pack, answer any questions raised by the buyer’s solicitor, arrange the exchange of contracts, deal with transfer of sale proceeds and answer any questions you may have along the way.

Whether it be face-to-face, over the telephone, by email or through videoconferencing, our friendly expert property lawyers are ready to discuss your individual needs.
