Getting deals over the line

Acquisitions & Disposals

Either way, our expert commercial property lawyers can help you.

Increasingly in this market, once a deal has been negotiated you just want a solicitor who will work with you and your team to get it over the line.  This applies whether property is your business or you are looking to acquire new premises to occupy.  We will work with you to best understand your business needs and know that you want to get on with the deal so that you can concentrate on your day job. We understand that delays cost money and our commercial property lawyers will work with you, your professional team, surveyors and funders to keep these to a minimum.

If you have a site that is surplus to requirements, we know that you want to complete a sale as quickly as possible. We can work with you from the moment you decide to sell to prepare a sales pack or data room so that you are ready to go as soon as a buyer is found.

Property transactions can be complex and sometimes just plain difficult, as a variety of problems may arise ranging from user restrictions, limited access to title complications or disputes.  We will give you clear guidance: not only identifying the problems; but also explaining how they could affect your business and then we will work with you to provide a practical and effective solution.

Our team has vast experience in buying and selling commercial, mixed-use and residential property (see Residential property section for more detail).  We act for every type of seller or buyer: including landowners, developers, manufacturers, education providers, social housing providers, charities and private clients.  Our team has extensive experience in traditional sales and purchases and auction work as well as corporate sales and purchases (both shares and assets)and is focused on delivering to you the best outcome.
