Owning or leasing commercial property brings with it advantages and also various liabilities.
If your business has UK real estate we can help deal with freehold purchases and disposals of all types of commercial property from shops and offices to warehouses and factories, and whether as an occupier or investor, with or without commercial mortgages. We also act for SIPPs on property acquisition and are used to dealing with pension trustee requirements in particular with regard to occupational leases. Our international property lawyers always focus on the outcome you want, working with Ecovis members and other professionals as required to ensure your objectives are achieved.
Our development and construction work encompasses acting for International developers in securing UK sites for residential and commercial development often with structured development finance. We can also advise UK landowners on selling for development either by way of option agreements or conditional contracts, ensuring that their interests are protected and site values are maximised.
We represent a number of UK banks and other lending institutions in providing independent legal advice on property lending ensuring that good security is obtained. We know that the most important thing from a bank’s point of view is to have an efficient and speedy firm acting for them, so that the transaction moves forward smoothly. We pride ourselves on the service we are able to provide in this respect.
