Our highly experienced Commercial Property team is headed by our Principal, Iain Leslie, and their objective is to help your business grow, whether you’re a sole trader or a national company.
As you do so, our dedicated Commercial Property team will be there alongside you, advising you on the most suitable premises for you, negotiating leases, lease extensions, licences for alterations and fitting-out arrangements.
Our Clients range from landlords to shop owners, small businesses in their first offices to national companies with multiple premises. All demand, and receive, the same level of excellence and attention to detail which we pride ourselves on giving to all our clients and that has gained us our excellent reputation.
In conjunction with our Litigation Department, we also provide advice on a wide range of Landlord and Tenant issues, from simple rent disputes to complex commercial surrenders and re-grants of new leases.
The Licensing Act 2003 requires any premises where there will be a gathering of people for leisure purposes, not just those involving the sale of alcohol or the provision of music, to be subject to a potential police fine if they operate without a licence. Our team has prepared and advised local businesses and associations on the impact of these changes and has submitted countless successful licence applications on their behalf.
We can advise you on:
- Grant of New Lease/Sub-Lease
- Assignment or Surrender of a Lease
- Fitting out of Premises
- Lease Extensions
- Deeds of Variation
- Inland Revenue and Land Registry formalities
- Licensing of Premises
- Development Sites
