We operate across all aspects of property law.
Commercial: Our commercial property team provides efficient and cost-effective advice on the key issues of acquisitions and disposals, sales and lettings and development, construction and refurbishment of commercial properties, either by corporate vehicles or investors. We act for property developers, investors, charities, landlords and tenants, and give advice on financing and taxation, particularly for clients based offshore.
Residential: In order to provide a complete service to our clients and, where relevant their lenders, we offer expert and efficient residential conveyancing including sales and purchases of freehold and leasehold properties and unregistered land and buildings. We also advise on the Help To Buy and other government initiatives. Where suitable, declarations of trust and other co-operation deeds can be prepared for co-owners by our trust department.
Landlord & Tenant: We act for both commercial and residential landlords and tenants, and can advise on all related aspects of property ownership and management. Our team can liaise with managing agents and other advisers, providing help and guidance throughout. We can clarify the rights and duties of both landlords and tenants and our litigation team is on hand to assist in the event of any dispute.
Leasehold enfranchisement: We will provide advice and assistance for either landlords or tenants in connection with the acquisition of a freehold or lease extensions. Previously we have acted for the occupiers of large blocks who have exercised their statutory rights of leasehold enfranchisement as well as for the owners of such properties.
