How can we help?
To access legal support from just £140 per hour arrange your no-obligation initial consultation to discuss your business requirements.
Whether you’re looking to buy or sell a business, assets or shares; restructure; demerge; secure investment or carry out a management buyout, property will be a key part of that transaction.
We offer comprehensive support on all of these transactions, working closely with our corporate colleagues to deliver your deal in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Solving issues and assisting transactions
Getting the right level of support at the right time is critical to the smooth running of your transaction. With years of experience in dealing with all manner of corporate transactions you can rely on our team of commercial property solicitors to ask all the relevant questions for future proofing your business’s needs.
No two deals are the same and issues can arise for even the most organised of businesses but that doesn’t phase us. Even if we haven’t dealt with your specific issue before (chances are we have), we have dealt with hurdles that need to be overcome at the 11th hour and always provide pragmatic support in the best interests of our clients.
Our property support depends on the nature of the corporate transaction and often includes:
Listing the property included
detailing their status and use
Investigation of ownership and title
and reporting any issues
to identify potential liabilities
Identifying and obtaining consent
for example, landlords consent to assignment
Warranties and indemnities
providing assurances and limiting liability
Managing third party contracts
such as maintenance or service agreements
All completion matters
filing forms such as Stamp Duty Land Tax forms with HMRC
