Commercial Property Law

Getting you into your new business premises, or out of the old, quickly, cost-effectively and with the minimum of fuss.

Our Commercial Property solicitors have a long and proven track record of supporting businesses, both locally and nationally, with even the most complex requirements.

Whether you’re buying, selling or leasing, we can help and support you with expert property advice and our extensive network of connections.

Taking the time to meet clients both at our Hungerford offices and at their various sites, land and business premises, enables us to gain an enhanced understanding of their legal requirements.

We’re frequently instructed to act in connection with shops, offices, industrial units, warehouses, hotels and public houses, and are here to help.

Sale & Purchase

We can advise you on the sale of a freehold property or the granting of a long or short business lease. Being involved from the outset ensures we can smooth the path of the transaction, pre-empting any potential problems and resolving them at an early stage.  

Being on the panel of most lenders, and frequently being instructed to act for both them and you, further assists commercial conveyancing transactions to run smoothly.

We can assist with Conditional Contracts, Option Agreements, Deeds of Pre-emption and Overage agreements. If you’d like more information on any of these, please download our Commercial Property fact sheet, or speak to one of our Commercial Property solicitors.

Financing & Security

We can advise you on mortgages, guarantees and debentures, to help you secure the commercial property you want and need.


Being aware of any property issues ensures you have a fair lease, whether you’re a property owner (landlord) or tenant. We like to meet you first to ensure we fully understand your aims, and will report on any issues arising. This is particularly useful for smaller businesses.

We advise on granting leases, renewals and extensions of leases, terminations of leases and licences to occupy.

Landlord & Tenant Issues

If you’re experiencing any difficulties with your landlord or tenant, it’s important to know your rights and best next steps. We frequently advise on a wide range of issues, including non-payment of rent, claims for breach of covenant, and dilapidations, on behalf of both Landlords and Tenants.  


Planning agreements are often required as part of the planning process, together with Landowners’ Co-operation Agreements. Our specialist solicitors can help you through what is often a challenging process, by advising you on and negotiating the terms and by completing the agreements in a timely manner.
