The sale and purchase of business premises, which would normally include offices, shops, public houses, factories, warehouses, leases premises and so on. This may also involve the granting by a landlord to a tenant, or taking from a landlord lease of commercial premises and assistance in the complex procedures concerning renewal, rent reviews, dilapidations and the many obligations normally taken on by a tenant of business premises.
Amongst the transactions with which we can assist are:
• Under leases
• Lease assignments
• Lease renewals and variations
• Freehold purchases and sales
• Estates and developments
• Commercial finance including remortgages
• Business sales and purchases
Since we appreciate the need to meet clients’ business needs, we will discuss at the outset what we expect any transaction to involve in terms of steps, anticipated obstacles, strategies and costs. We know that clients are not always aware of all the issues in a case from a legal point of view, and we will try and make these clear to ensure that any timescale can be achieved realistically.
