Commercial property issues can be more complex than residential property transactions, which is why getting specialist commercial property advice can be so important:
A lease or a licence? It always depends on a number of factors, but we’ll quickly get up to speed so we can advise on the best course of action. It may also be possible to negotiate a lease or licence, in which case getting a good lawyer could even save you money.
We’ll get to work on searches, review any contracts and clarify all queries. We’ll also advise on timescales, costs and highlight any risks. And wherever possible, once we understand the outcomes you want to achieve we’ll consider how you might get an even better deal.
Business leases and licences
Should you choose a licence or a lease? The answer rather depends. Features to be clear about include the presence of regular periodic payments and a specific end-date to the agreement. There are benefits and obligations to both. Being clear on what these are beforehand is important. Sign the wrong agreement and you may find your rights are not protected or your business is affected.
Silks Solicitors advises business on setting up the right agreement for them. Drafting a lease or a licence, explaining the terms, obligations and liabilities is done free from legal jargon. Our expert lawyers work with you, deal with any problems and make sure costs, timescales and likely outcomes are clear. If your licence or lease needs to be amended, or it is time for renewal, we can help you do this as well.
Buying and selling business property
There are a number of issues to consider when buying or selling property. Preparation of a sale contract, negotiating and agreeing terms, searches on the buyer or seller as well as the property and funding all take time. It is a major financial decision to take. Taking time to find the best legal advice may be crucial in securing a great deal, not just a good one.
Silks Solicitors works with many business owners, advising them on their commercial property needs. We help you prepare. As your property advisor, we ensure you understand any agreements. We carry out work on your behalf, such as searches, keeping you informed throughout. If we need to negotiate for you, we conduct this according to the outcomes you want to achieve. You will know likely costs, timescales and any risks associated with the transaction. And we make sure everything runs as smoothly as it can, right until you sign the contracts.
