Frequently questions about Commercial Property Law

Commercial property solicitors specialise in legal matters related to the acquisition, disposal, leasing, financing, and development of commercial properties. They can assist with tasks such as:

  • Conducting due diligence on properties
  • Negotiating and drafting commercial leases
  • Advising on property financing options
  • Ensuring compliance with relevant regulations
  • Managing the legal aspects of property development
  • Resolving disputes arising from commercial property transactions

Commercial lawyers encompass a broader range of legal issues affecting businesses, but commercial property law is a significant specialisation within this field. A commercial lawyer may also handle matters like:

  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Contract drafting and negotiation
  • Corporate governance
  • Intellectual property law
  • Employment law

While not mandatory, it’s highly advisable to involve a commercial property solicitor in leasing a commercial property. The legal complexities of a lease can have significant financial and operational implications for your business. A solicitor can ensure your interests are protected, the lease agreement is clear and concise, and you understand your rights and obligations as a tenant.

The cost of a commercial lease solicitor can vary depending on the complexity of the lease, the size and location of the property, and the experience of the solicitor. It’s common for solicitors to charge an hourly rate or a fixed fee based on the scope of work. Be sure to get a clear fee agreement upfront before engaging a solicitor.

Similar to lease fees, commercial solicitor costs can vary depending on the nature of the legal matter and the solicitor’s experience. For specific projects, some solicitors may offer fixed fees, while others may charge hourly rates. It’s important to discuss fees openly with potential solicitors before starting any work.

The allocation of legal costs for a commercial lease is typically negotiated between the landlord and tenant. The lease agreement will specify who is responsible for their own legal fees and potentially those of the other party.

While commercial solicitors primarily focus on resolving issues outside of court through negotiation and mediation, they are also prepared to represent clients in court proceedings if necessary. This could involve disputes arising from lease agreements, property ownership issues, or disagreements with lenders.

Clients instruct commercial lawyers for a variety of reasons, including:

  • To gain expert legal advice on complex commercial transactions
  • To ensure their rights and interests are protected in business dealings
  • To navigate the complexities of commercial law and regulations
  • To achieve their business goals efficiently and effectively
  • To minimise risks and maximise value in commercial transactions
