Our Commercial Property team
Meet Jeremy Burke, Head of Residential and Commercial Property:
We have offices in Ashford, Canterbury and Herne Bay. Whether you are purchasing, selling, charging or leasing property our experienced Commercial Property team will provide practical advice tailored to your specific needs.
We understand our clients’ businesses - we have worked with many clients for a long time - and are well respected for our imaginative and responsive approach to their strategic priorities. We also have excellent contacts and can introduce clients to funders, joint venture partners and other specialists in the industry as required.
We act for a wide variety of clients - property companies, investors, commercial landlords and tenants, developers, banks and financial institutions as well as for organisations in the educational, public and charitable sectors.
Our services include:
Whatever type of commercial property you are buying or selling – hotels, industrial parks, office blocks, community parks – we can offer you a highly efficient conveyancing service from negotiation of terms through to completion.
The grant or purchase of a commercial lease holds many pitfalls for the unwary landlord or tenant. Our experienced team will help you navigate the dangers and give you expert advice on the implication of clauses within the lease. We will also draft leases tailored to your specific circumstances and offer you support through every stage of a transaction.
Property Development & Management
We offer site developers a comprehensive range of services which include site acquisition, plot sales and the setting up of bespoke companies for the management of common parts. We also advise on the grant and renewal of leases of business parks and residential lettings, including rent reviews, dilapidations claims and the formation and sale of the new commonholds.
