We get deals over the line

Sales & Purchases

Buying or selling commercial property for your business?   Our expert real estate lawyers are on hand to help you achieve your goal.

Our first priority is to understand what you wish to achieve and why.  We know that once we do so, we can work as part of your team.  Whether this is the first property you have bought or you have bought and sold many times, we shall support you.  Our lawyers are experienced in working with other professionals in your team – agents, surveyors and funders – to ensure your transaction proceeds as smoothly and quickly as possible.

Property transactions can be complex.  Problems may arise such as limited access, user restrictions or disputes.  If we identify an issue, we shall discuss it with you and offer guidance on how it might affect you and your business.  We will work with you to find a practical and effective solution which is satisfactory to you and any funders or prospective tenants.  Experience means that we know that sometimes there is no legal solution and then we shall let you know so that you can make an informed decision about how to proceed (or not).

Our clients include landowners, developers, manufacturers, educational establishments, charities, hospitality and leisure concepts, social housing providers, retailers and private clients.  Each client has different business needs or corporate requirements, and our advice is tailored as necessary to benefit our clients.

Every transaction is different, so why use a firm that’s the same as all the others?  Our experience includes straightforward sales and purchases of single properties, auction sales or purchases, mixed use property, multi-let properties and working with our corporate colleagues in buying or selling properties as part of an asset or share sale.

Our lawyers enjoy the variety of their work and getting deals over the line.
