Buying or selling commercial property
If you are looking to buy or sell a commercial property, you need a specialist legal partner to ensure the best possible terms for your business.
At Beswicks Legal, our in-depth understanding of this often complex area of law ensures your commercial property transaction completes as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible, meeting your commercial objectives.
Buying or selling agricultural land
The buying and selling of agricultural property requires specialist legal advice. Using our extensive experience of the purchase and sale of all types of agricultural land, from small areas of farmland to large farms, we will work closely with your land agent to ensure your position is protected in relation to the Basic Payment Scheme, Countryside Stewardship and rural development.
Commercial landlord and tenant agreements
Negotiating new leases or lease renewals, and advising on assignments, under-lettings and consents for alterations are just some of the ways that we help commercial landlords and tenants.
We know that maximising income from property investments by ensuring they are tenanted as soon as possible is crucial to landlords, which is why we provide swift support to ensure legal compliance and consistency of terms across your let property.
For tenants, we offer practical, commercial advice from settling heads of terms to negotiating and completing leases. Advising on key issues like rent review, repair liability, break notices and service charges, we help you to make sure the terms on which you occupy your property meet your commercial needs now and in the future.
Where a landlord/tenant dispute does occur, we seek to use negotiation and mediation wherever possible to secure the best possible result for you and your business quickly and cost-effectively. If settlement cannot be reached, we have the litigation skills and experience necessary to represent you at court.
Using our extensive experience of both commercial and residential property development, we can help with a broad range of development issues, from site acquisition and assembly to utility and highway agreements, ensuring your development project completes on time and within budget.
If you fail to secure planning permission for your development the entire project can fail. Our planning team works proactively to secure planning permission, either from the council or on appeal. By involving us at the early stages, we can work out any potential planning policy and technical issues before an application or appeal is submitted.
Our experience acting for banks and building societies direct, as independent solicitors on high value, complex property finance transactions, gives us an unrivalled ability to manage your property finance matter. Whether you wish to take advantage of better interest rates or wish to release equity for investment in your core business, our team will anticipate your bank’s requirements, prepare and deal with all aspects of lender due diligence, as well as ensuring the fast and efficient preparation and completion of documents.
