For our business clients, our services include the sale and purchase of business premises, including offices, shops, hotels, licensed premises, etc.
This may involve the sale or purchase of heritable property, or the granting to a tenant or taking from a landlord a lease of commercial premises, which can often be extremely complex.
We are experienced in acting for landlords in preparing commercial leases for various types of properties and for tenants in revising commercial leases.
We have gained particular expertise in acting for house builders and developers in the purchase and sale of land and buildings for development / re-development / renovation.
Our dedicated development team comprises partner, Maureen Collison; commercial conveyancing paralegal, Alison Smith; and personal assistant, Gillian Douglas.
For information on licensing matters or the sale or purchase of all types of licensed premises, contact partner, Derek Duncan, or his personal assistant, Lynda Thomas.
We also deal with loan and security work in connection with land and all types of property, acting either for the borrower or the lender.
We handle all aspects of licensing for public houses, hotels and off-licences. This will include advice and assistance in submitting a licensing application, objecting to applications, and, if necessary, appealing against decisions of the Licensing Board.
