We aim to work closely with clients and their other professional advisers including surveyors and accountants to deliver practical and cost effective advice and solutions.

Properties

Our team has a wealth of experience in dealing with a broad range of properties including offices, industrial, retail, warehouses, medical centres, leisure facilities such as golf courses and licensed premises.

Services

We advise on a full range of leasing work and our specialist lawyers have expertise in:

  • Negotiating new leases, guarantees and rent deposits
  • Lease renewals
  • Property management including rent reviews, licences for alterations, lease transfers, sub-lettings, and change of use
  • Statutory compliance issues such as energy performance, asbestos, fire safety
  • Dilapidation (repairing) issues
  • Lease surrenders, break clauses and termination of business tenancies
  • Landlord or tenant insolvency
  • Tax issues such as VAT and SDLT

By getting involved early on in a transaction we can assist with the negotiation of heads of terms, ensuring that key issues addressed before documents are prepared which then need extensive changes to basic principles causing delay and increased costs.

We are also able to provide pro-active advice for clients with large scale portfolios of investment properties and strategic advice where needed.

And because our team draws on our property litigation specialists we can provide legal support should anything go wrong such as debt collection, service charge disputes or claims for repossession of the property.
