Our Commercial Property Services

We can assist you with a broad range of commercial property legal issues, including:

Buying and Selling Commercial property

Buying or selling commercial property can present an excellent opportunity for your business. It may give your business certainty and remove any concerns about rental increases. Owning your commercial property allows you flexibility in terms of operations and creating the optimum working environment. However, the commercial conveyancing process can be complicated, and that is why we aim to remove any difficulty you may experience when buying or selling commercial property. 

We can make sure your transaction runs as smoothly as possible. Commercial property transactions can be complicated, challenging to navigate and challenging to negotiate. As such, it is essential to instruct solicitors with experience and commercial awareness to handle your commercial conveyancing transaction for you. We will guide you expertly through the process from dealing with lenders on your behalf and preparing contracts for sale to negotiating the sale or purchase with your best interests in mind and reaching a binding agreement.

Drafting and Negotiating Commercial Leases

A commercial lease is a big commitment and one which should not be entered into without careful consideration. Our commercial team can provide expert guidance concerning all aspects of commercial leases, ensuring that you can move forward with confidence.

Breach of Covenant

Where a landlord or tenant fails in their obligations under a commercial lease, this may amount to a breach of covenant. There are many circumstances which may lead to a breach of covenant, including issues with repairs and maintenance. We can expertly navigate such matters to ensure swift resolution of the legal challenges you are facing. Our commercial property team are experienced in acting for both landlords and tenants in a wide variety of circumstances.


We can offer advice to our commercial clients looking to purchase land for development or regeneration. We will guide you through the process from start to finish. From commercial conveyancing to advising on potential environmental matters, we can make sure your project gets off to the best possible start.

This list is not exhaustive and if you have any commercial property legal issues that you need advice on, contact our commercial property team today. We look forward to hearing from you.
