Commercial Property Law

Commercial property incorporates various types of property, from a pub or a shop to an industrial unit or bare land.

Stamp duty for a residential purchase that is not your own personal residence (i.e., investment properties) starts at £40,000. However, if you are buying “commercial property,” the rates start at £150,000. HMRC considers anything that is non-residential to be charged at the “commercial property” rates.

We can assist you with all aspects of commercial property, whether you are looking to purchase, sell and/or lease. We offer personalised, no-nonsense, honest and practical advice to tenants, landlords, buyers and sellers.​

We can help you find the experts you need, such as:

  • Surveyors
  • Commercial mortgage advisors
  • Architects
  • Estate Agents

Acquiring a commercial property involves a significantly more intricate process compared to a residential dwelling. It often entails dealing with additional documents such as Rent Deposit Deed and Deeds of Guarantee. Moreover, purchasing a business is even more complex than a standard commercial purchase. Rest assured, we are here to guide you through every step and provide the advice you need to successfully complete your transaction.

Our commercial conveyancing services include:

  • Buying a commercial building.
  • Selling a commercial building, whether it is leasehold or freehold
