Commercial Property Services

If you are a landlord looking to lease your commercial property, or a tenant looking for a home for your business, we can help you. Our expert commercial property solicitors act in a wide range of matters for all properties, from offices to warehouses.

Our commercial conveyancing services include:

  • Acquisitions and disposals of Commercial and Investment Property.

  • Commercial lease renewals.
  • Property finance and lending.
  • Lease management including licences, Deed of Variations, and Surrenders.

We understand that if you are a landlord looking to rent your property you need to be backed by the law at every stage. We also realise it can be a difficult process to remove abusive and problematic tenants from rental properties. Our commercial property solicitors can help you make sure you have all the correct paperwork – laying down the law to ensure this doesn’t happen.

If you’re a business owner looking to rent a property, it’s vital to find the best premises for your requirements. Signing a commercial lease only to find you can’t use the property for the purpose you need may prove very costly for your business. Our team will make sure that you understand the repairing obligations and all details of the lease to alleviate any future problems and give you legal security to go ahead with your business.

We work closely with our clients to ensure our advice is always tailored specifically to your needs. We are quick, efficient and thorough, and keen to ensure commercial property law works for you.
