Whether you decide to lease or to buy commercial premises for your business, or plan to purchase as an investment, Milne Moser can guide you through the entire process.
I’ve bought and sold over 40 properties using Milne Moser. Every time I have been dealt with in a very professional manner and I am confident that I have the best people on my side.
Buying commercial premises
If you have the capital available, you may decide to go down the route of purchasing the freehold of a building.
We will work with you, and any mortgage lender, to make sure that the property that you have chosen has a good legal title and is suitable for your requirements.
Taking a lease of commercial premises
Many businesses don’t have the capital available to purchase the freehold of a building, so rent their business premises instead.
Generally, commercial landlords are willing to negotiate, so we recommend that you come and talk to us before you agree the terms of your new lease.
With the right advice, the terms that you agree could help your business to become the success that you hope for and help you to reduce your overall liabilities.
Terms and conditions
Whilst the term of the lease and the annual rent are important, commercial leases are not the same as residential leases and specialist advice should always be obtained.
You should be particularly wary of terms and conditions that are too restrictive, as these could affect your ability to trade freely from the property.
You could also find that you are responsible for more than you bargained for, in terms of repair and maintenance, if you do not seek specialist advice.
Selling commercial properties
The time may come when you decide to sell your commercial property. To ensure that your sale transaction progresses as swiftly as possible, we recommend that you come and see us as soon as the property is marketed, so that we can assist you in preparing your sale documentation and give you a head-start, once a buyer is found.
Letting your commercial property
As the landlord of a commercial property, it is essential that any lease that you grant protects your interests as much as possible – and for that, you need our team of experts. We work efficiently and swiftly, and get the job done.
Whilst commercial property law is complex and technical, our specialist solicitors have the knowledge and experience to advise you every step of the way.
