Commercial property conveyancing solicitors

Our commercial property solicitors act for businesses, landlords and investors on the sale and purchase of land and buildings throughout England and Wales.

By taking the time to consider your commercial objectives alongside industry-specific requirements, we are able to ensure that all your interests are properly protected and that the final contract accurately reflects your expectations.

We advise on all stages of the commercial property transaction from both a buying and selling aspect. This process includes:

  • Investigation of title, Commercial Property Standard Enquiries, and pre-contract searches;
  • Drafting and reviewing all the documents related to the transaction, including the purchase and sale contract, transfer deed, lease (if it is a leasehold property), Stamp Duty form, and mortgage deed;
  • Exchanging the contracts;
  • Negotiating the completion date;
  • Transfers;
  • Payment of Stamp Duty;
  • Liaising with HM Land Registry and registering the transaction; and
  • Arranging any outstanding mortgage payments (for selling clients).

By working closely alongside all the involved parties including surveyors, accountants and agents, we ensure that each element of the transaction is accomplished on time and within budget, allowing you to continue running your business with minimal disruption.

In addition to supporting you with the buying and selling process, we can also provide guidance and legal advice on all the associated funding aspects including corresponding with your lender and dealing with any security requirements.

Our Legal 500-ranked Commercial Property team has decades of experience representing clients across a wide range of sectors including charities, energy, agriculture and education, as well as advising individuals on private transactions.

Our experience ranges from dealing with the sale and purchase of small shops and office premises to the purchase or sale of high-value shopping centres, industrial estates and investment portfolios.

The transactions we have negotiated and completed also include elements such as option agreements, restrictive covenants, financing agreements, and overage agreements.

We have also advised on conditional land sales and purchases, which are often subject to planning permission or other requirements. These types of transactions can be very complex and can conceal matters that may become an issue after the sale or purchase, therefore accurate drafting and meticulous attention to detail are essential.
