You want to ensure the process of transferring property is seamless, and handled by someone who knows what they’re doing. Our professional teams have lots of experience in this area. To put your mind at rest, here are the qualities your commercial conveyancing solicitor should have, and which we have in abundance.
Lots of recent, relevant experience in the sale, purchase or re–mortgaging of commercial property
Whatever your business premises needs are, or your budget, we can help you secure the right premises with all the legal jargon explained to you in full so you are 100% clear on what is required from you, what your responsibilities and obligations are and how much the process will cost. Our can walk you through the entire process of selling, purchasing, leasing or re-mortgaging a commercial property.
Speedy turnaround with any necessary documentation
When it comes to business, time is money, so we know the importance of turning a job like this around quickly to get a speedy result for you. Whatever type of commercial property agreement you decide on, you’ll have a contract in place which protects you and outlines in black and white the conditions of your particular case. If you want to speed the process up from your end, you can help by ensuring that you sign and return any necessary documentation as soon as possible to us to process. There will be times when we are relying on third party suppliers (such as an estate agent or mortgage lender) to give us information, but rest assured we’ll do everything we can to minimise the delay to you.
In-depth technical knowledge
Commercial conveyancing can be a complicated terrain to navigate, so you need to ensure your solicitor has experience across all the key areas to handle your case skilfully. These might include:
- Drafting and negotiating business leases and contracts for landlords and tenants
- Handling any leasing issues (such as lease assignments, lease renewals and early lease terminations)
- Developing contracts in circumstances where the property is conditional upon development and planning
- Advising you on subletting leasehold property
- Rent review issues
- Transparent two-way communication skills
We think it’s crucial to maintain positive relationships with our clients, and that includes making an effort to get rid of the jargon around commercial conveyancing to keep communication lines between the two parties free from confusion. Throughout the process, you’ll have a dedicated solicitor working for you, and this person will be your go-to for any and all questions – don’t worry if you think your questions seems silly. We have heard and seen it all before and it’s always better to ask than to regret it. If there is anything in your contract which you do not understand fully, just ask us.
