There are fundamentally two ways of owning a property. It is important you understand the difference as it affects buying, owning, maintaining and selling your commercial property...
There are many reasons why tenants want the security of a long lease. However, circumstances can change and current premises may no longer fit the financial position, expanding staff numbers or plans of a business.
Whether you are a landlord or tenant, our commercial property team can assist you with the negotiation and drafting of a mutually acceptable commercial lease to ensure your interests and needs are always protected.
Commercial property disputes often involve complex areas of law and, whether you are a commercial landlord or tenant, it is pertinent to obtain expert legal advice.
When a property is owned with a long lease the property will depreciate in value and mortgage lenders are usually reluctant to lend on a property with a short lease as selling the property becomes more difficult.
There are many reasons for purchasing and selling land, from buying a small piece of land from a neighbour, to buying a large site for development or to prevent such development, to purchasing or selling farmland, investment land or woodland.
