Acquiring commercial premises

We can assist you with the acquisition of freehold and leasehold investment properties and we can assist you in the negotiation and completion of new commercial leases including obtaining appropriate Licence to Assign and other consents from the landlord or other interested parties.  Our specialists will ensure that the legal documentation reflects the deal that you have negotiated and will explain the position to you in clear, easy to understand language.
