Property Acquisitions and Disposals

We act for a wide range of clients from individuals looking to build up a commercial property portfolio through to large companies needing to expand or relocate their premises.

More about Property Acquisitions and Disposals

No matter how big or small the transaction, our expert solicitors are ready to assist from agreeing initial terms through to carrying out due diligence and completion of the transaction. We also assist with all post-completion formalities including service of any required notices, filing of Stamp Duty Land Tax returns and applying to register the transaction at the Land Registry.

When acquiring or disposing of a property, we will advise and guide you through the process every step of the way. Our team can advise on the best way to structure a transaction depending on your specific requirements, including through sale and leaseback arrangements, option agreements and conditional contracts.

We have strong links with many financial advisors and lending institutions including the mainstream banks, which means that we can provide assistance if funding is required as part of a property acquisition and are familiar with the lenders' usual requirements when providing funding and securing their lending.

We can also assist with auction purchases including a review and report on the documents supplied as part of the legal pack including title documents and property searches, to ensure that you are aware of any major legal issues affecting the property.
