Commercial Property

We have a wealth of experience in dealing with all aspects of the commercial property and offer excellent legal advice to companies acquiring, selling, leasing or developing property. We deal with the following issues of commercial property development:

  • Planning of commercial property
  • Drafting and negotiating contracts of sale for commercial property
  • Advising on the terms and conditions of planning permissions
  • All planning and environmental issues including pre-contract and planning searches
  • Investigation and Registration of title of Commercial Property
  • Stage payments
  • VAT
  • Environmental issues
  • Stamp duty

Commercial Leases

In addition, we also advise both landlords and tenants of commercial property on all aspects dealing with the drafting and negotiation of commercial leases:

  • Pre-Lease enquiries including investigation of title, services, easements rights and privileges, and planning matters
  • Rent review provisions
  • Repairing obligations
  • Guarantees
  • Collateral warranties
  • Registration
  • VAT

It can be daunting trying to get your head around all these matters and that is why it is essential that you use an experienced professional for commercial property. Early on we will identify the issues that will come up and deal with the requirements of your bank. In Commercial property transactions your bank always appoints its own Solicitors so in effect there will be three sets of Solicitors. One for you, one for the Vendor and one for your bank. There will be special conditions attaching to the loan offer which will be far more stringent than that attaching to a residential loan.
