Great Interaction
Great interaction. I had a simple question which would have cost a fortune going to see a local solicitor. It was all very professional but still friendly. The solicitor I spoke to was the chief executive of her law firm (I looked her up on LinkedIn). You are dealing with very good lawyers who earn additional money through Lawhive. I would definitely use this service again. Highly recommend.

The solicitor who was appointed to me was outstanding
Very simple to engage with instant confirmation in writing straight after. Daniel, the solicitor who was appointed to me, was outstanding in his approach, his understanding of the technicalities of the law and, crucially, a genuine care for the client. Would definitely advise using Lawhive, you won't regret it.

We were so pleased to find the Lawhive website
After struggling to find a solicitor willing to give us advice, and for a reasonable cost, we were so pleased to find the Lawhive website. At first we wondered how well it would work, but needn't have worried at all - the whole process was simple, straightforward and professional and great value for money. We felt extremely lucky to be matched with our solicitor, Sonay Erten, as she was exactly what we were looking for - knowledgeable, patient and kind - a refreshing change from solicitors we have used in the past. She showed a great deal of empathy for our situation and explained things in language that was easy to understand (rather than the usual "solicitor" talk, which can be intimidating). She's a shining example of what a solicitor should aspire to be and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others or use her again in the future. We came out of our session reassured and confident of what we needed to do going forward, so a big "thank you!"

Fast and professional
I got the outcome I wanted regarding cease and desist to a competitor spreading defamatory statements about my business. Fast and professional, and at a much lower price than high street firms. Highly recommended thanks.

Very efficient! Can highly recommend.
I found the website very easy to use. Quick responses and I was even able to talk to someone who was friendly and competent. She rang me rather than emailed me. A solicitor was quickly found who could help me and once the relevant identification was approved he started work. Within two days the solicitor had checked documents and commented on them. Very efficient! Can highly recommend.

The service was fast and ultra professional
Sonay was really informative and understood my questions instantly, what I thought was complex Sonay simplified massively. She regularly checked in and the service was fast and ultra professional. Would highly recommend.

Commercial Property Solicitors

Commercial property law deals with buying, selling, renting, and using land for business. It's important for many industries and often involves other legal areas like the environment, planning, construction, and taxes. 

commercial-property-solicitor

Commercial property is a major financial commitment for any business, whether you’re a farmer, or hotel owner, renting your first office, or handling multiple sites. 

At Lawhive, our experts can help with negotiating leases, renewing them, organizing temporary rentals, getting permission to sublet, ending leases early, and handling disputes. Contact our legal assessment team for personalised advice and a free fixed-fee quote.

What does a commercial property solicitor do?

Commercial property law is pretty broad, covering a range of areas like:

  • Renting out commercial spaces and handling disputes between landlords and tenants

  • Buying, managing, or selling property for profit

  • Development projects, like building homes or offices

  • Figuring out how to pay for commercial properties

  • Resolving disputes related to commercial properties

Whether you're signing lease agreements or sorting out ownership problems, having someone who knows their legal stuff can be a big help.

Commercial property solicitors handle various tasks related to commercial properties, such as sales, purchases, leases, and disputes. They serve different clients and provide advice on property-related matters.

Get in touch with us to find the right solicitor for your needs.

Commercial landlord and tenant disputes 

Understanding the Landlord and Tenant Act of 1984 can be tough for both commercial landlords and tenants. This can sometimes lead to disputes, even when everyone wants things to go smoothly.

That's why it's crucial to make sure all the clauses in a commercial lease are clear and accurate right from the beginning. This helps prevent costly disagreements down the road.

If you're considering assigning, subletting, or ending a lease, it's a good idea to seek advice from a commercial property expert. They can help make sure everything is done correctly, in your best interests, from sorting out possession claims to reclaiming rent or service charges owed.

Popular ways we can help

Do I need a solicitor to rent a commercial property? 

No, there's no law saying you must have a commercial property solicitor to rent a commercial property. Landlords and tenants can work things out themselves. But just because you can, doesn't mean it's the best idea.

Commercial leases are pretty complicated and cover a bunch of stuff. A solicitor can help you figure out what it all means and, more importantly, how it'll affect you in real life.

Getting a solicitor to check your lease can help catch problems early on, so they don't become big headaches later. For example, if the lease isn't clear on how much a tenant should pay for service charges, a solicitor can ask for clarification or advise if the amount seems too high.

If you decide to go it alone, your lease needs to be clear on:

There are lots of potential issues in a commercial lease. A solicitor can help you think about them, negotiate lease terms, and make sure you understand your rights and responsibilities before you sign anything.

Do you need a solicitor to sell a commercial property? 

Yes, if you’re selling a commercial property you’ll need a commercial conveyancing solicitor to handle several important legal tasks throughout the commercial sales process including: 

  • Managing deposits; 

  • Preparing documents

  • Arranging contract exchanges; 

  • Representing your interests; 

  • Handling VAT considerations;

  • Confirming money transfers; 

  • Answering any questions you may have along the way. 

Commercial property solicitors play an important role in buying and selling commercial properties. Not only can they prepare documents like heads of terms and assemble the sales pack, but they are also on hand to make sure you understand the process and any legal implications of going through with the transaction, whichever side you’re on.
