We have worked with many of our clients for years (and some for generations) advising them on buying and selling commercial properties and land for development purposes.
Our team has extensive experience of dealing with a wide range of assets such as bare land for agricultural use or for development, vacant premises, the purchase of business assets in which the bulk of the value is in the commercial property or even change of use transactions for example, converting offices into flats.
Every property transaction will have its own unique considerations and our commercial property experts have the experience to identify the issues and offer you advice. Common concerns over buying and selling property could include:
- Does the property have a sufficient right of access or right to receive or lay services over neighbouring property?
- Are there restrictive covenants preventing the buyer’s desired use of the property?
- Has the property got the necessary planning permission for the use of the property?
- Do search results identify any breaches of planning, any enforcement notices, any contamination, any risk of flooding?
There are several types of sale and purchase agreements.
