Buying and selling commercial property is undertaken both by owner occupiers and by investors. Our clients include charities and their trading subsidiaries buying premises for their own use, as well as business people and their family companies. Trusts too can acquire premises for their own or beneficiaries' business use.
Investors acquire commercial property for the income it generates as rent and for the prospect of capital growth. The landlord and tenant relationship is the interface between these investment objectives and the occupier's need for business space without too much capital tied up in ownership. Investors range from individuals and companies to trusts pension schemes and charities.
In these transactions, the solicitor's ability to act quickly, to meet the client's timetable, ranks with accuracy and clarity as essential skills.
