What can a business property solicitor help with?

Business property law deals with the ownership and rights relating to commercial property.  Like domestic property, transferring ownership of premises or creating lease agreements can be a time consuming and intricate process – one that you shouldn’t have to tackle alone.

If your business is in a position to buy or sell a property, a legal expert will carry out much of the same conveyancing work as would happen when you move home. If you are leasing out your property or your business is taking on a lease, putting the right legal framework in place can help to avoid issues further down the line.

The areas a commercial property solicitor can assist with include:

  • Buying and selling commercial property
  • Land acquisition and option agreements
  • Commercial leases
  • Property development
  • Landlord and tenant matters
  • Commercial refinancing

Working with tenants

Commercial leases require the knowledge and experience of a qualified legal service provider. If you are entering into a lease agreement or looking to extend a lease agreement with a landlord, you need the support of a legal expert to ensure that the contract between parties is fair and in your best interests.

Employing a property solicitor can help to prevent any problems during a lease extension or rent review, helping to avoid any conflict that might occur if the parties negotiated directly.

However, there are times when property disputes are unavoidable. If you are a tenant and believe that you have been treated unfairly by your landlord, we can help you enter into mediation and, if all else fails, proceed to litigation on your behalf.

Working with landlords

Whether you choose to invest in an office, warehouse, factory or residential property, the responsibilities associated with being a landlord are extensive. Get off on the right legal footing and property ownership can be a lucrative and safe investment; get things wrong and you may leave yourself open to legal challenges.

Buying, selling and remortgaging properties that you own for commercial purposes requires a similar level of legal support as buying your own home. Beyond this you will also need support to draft contracts with your tenants. Should you experience issues with difficult tenants it may also be that you need legal advice to help you handle your dispute or litigation case.
