Commercial Conveyancing

Buying, selling or leasing a commercial property is different to a domestic one, with issues that are unlikely to be part of a residential transaction.

That’s why Direction Law offers specialist advice from a lawyer who understands commercial property matters.

Property is often the major asset for an individual or a business and commercial property law can cause problems whether you own or rent property, and there can be extra legal liabilities and potential costs that you may not be aware of.

We act for private and corporate landowners, builders and property developers and our expertise covers a wide range of commercial property issues including:

»     Granting and taking leases of offices, shops, and commercial, industrial and licensed premises

»     Buying and selling investment and owner-occupied property

»     Overage agreements

»     Options and conditional contracts

»     Serving break notices

»     Portfolio acquisitions and disposals

»     Licences to assign, sublet, alter and change use

»     Rent deposits, authorised guarantee agreements and guarantees

»     Auction purchases and sales

»     Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 exclusions, terminations and renewals

»     Property finance and secured lending

»     Licences to occupy and tenancies at will

»     Deeds of variation and lease renewals

»     Residential lease extensions

Obtaining legal advice before embarking upon any commercial property transaction can help to reduce any risk to you and/or your business.
