Commercial Property

Finding the right location for your business is the most fundamental factor in whether it is a success or not. Once you have found the right location, we can handle the lease negotiation for you. We have successfully negotiated over 700 leases for franchise businesses so have the experience to set your business up.

A badly drafted lease may not be apparent until the end of your lease term or when you come to sell the business, so it is worth investing in professional advice from the outset.

We can also assist with planning applications and liaise with your landlord to ensure a binding contract is in place with terms that you are happy with. If you are applying to change the existing use of the property then you may require consent from the local council. Planning can be a complex matter but we can provide specialist advice and check the planning history of a property.
