Commercial Property

Commercial Property

In addition to our residential property service, we can give advice and assistance to businesses, companies and partnerships in relation to the sale, purchase and letting of commercial property.

In the course of running your business, the premises you occupy, and the basis of that occupation, are important factors in the smooth running and profitability of your business. Whether you own your business premises or lease them from a commercial or private landlord, we can advise and assist you.

As with residential transactions, please contact us when you first contemplate the sale or purchase of your business premises, or otherwise when the terms are agreed. Where commercial premises are concerned, it is vitally important that clear and fair heads of terms are drawn up at an early stage. Whilst a commercial selling agent may be employed to handle that task, we can advise at an early stage to assist you in negotiating heads of terms and to enable you to proceed from a position of strength. If there are no agents, we can draw up heads of terms and begin a dialogue with the lawyer acting for the other party. Once terms are agreed, we will do our best to ensure that the transaction progresses quickly and smoothly to completion.

The same principles apply to commercial lettings and we are confident in our ability to initiate and preserve a healthy commercial relationship between you and your landlord or tenant. We can also advise in situations where a lease is being assigned (transferred).

Where commercial premises are already let we can advise on issues which may arise during the course of that letting, such as rent reviews, property alterations, breaches of covenant and sub-lettings. We can also offer advice in relation to the termination or renewal of a business tenancy.

In both commercial sales and lettings, you may be required to provide your purchaser or tenant with a valid Energy Performance Certificate. In conjunction with other suitably qualified professionals, we can provide you with an appropriate certificate, so please contact us before making enquiries elsewhere.

For further information on our commercial property department, please contact Martyn Clarke, Nick White (Ripon), Jo Nylan (Ripon), Andrew Clarke (Thirsk) or Oliver Riley (Thirsk).
