Building on firm foundations.

Commercial Property

Whatever business you’re in, your property is a vital part of your day-to-day operation.  However, it is also one of the parts that need to be managed most carefully. 

Whether you are a tenant or a landlord, we can provide all of the property support required to make sure your business can continue to function and grow without costly or irritating interruptions.

If you want to expand into or rent out new premises, we can help you negotiate the terms of your new lease.  If your lease has expired or is just about to, we will clarify your legal position and put together the new lease or lease extension you’ll need.

Alternatively you may be looking to alter your premises, either to allow your business to progress or to make your property more attractive to new tenants.  We can explain what alterations could be made and how to make them without breaching any existing terms or upsetting your tenant or landlord.

If you’ve reached a point where your current premises are no longer suitable, you may want to look at a transfer or a sub-let. We can discuss your requirements and help you reach the best outcome with your tenant or landlord.

If you want to terminate a current lease, we can explain your statutory and contractual positions and work out how best to manage the termination and the other issues, like dilapidations, that tend to be involved with a termination.

If you are a landlord you may occasionally find yourself in dispute with your tenants.  Similarly if you are a tenant you may occasionally find yourself in dispute with your landlord.  Disagreements can arise easily; it may be on the back of a rent review, it may be because of a failure to pay rent, it may be over a breach of maintenance or dilapidations obligations or over the renewal of your lease.

Whatever the cause, we are here to help you unravel your position and guide you through the dispute so that you reach the best possible outcome.
