Solving issues and assisting transactions

Commercial property legal support for corporate 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

Due diligence

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

Who we help

Guiding buyers or sellers

We can support any person, company or partnership that wants to buy or sell a business by handling the property element of your transaction.

So you receive swift, pragmatic, sensible and business focused advice we make a point of getting to know your business and understand the details of the transaction, commitments and potential risks.

Working regularly with our corporate colleagues, we’ve formed closed working relationships and operate as a team without disjointed communication. This co-ordinated approach sets us aside and is a real advantage for our clients. Learn more about our M&A support.
