We will keep you informed at every stage of the transaction.

Business sales and purchases

In some business sales or purchases, employment matters may arise. If this is the case our Employment Rights Team can provide a quotation for our employment law services.


We have the experience to provide practical advice in relation to all aspects of commercial leases for both landlords and tenants. Having an unsuitable lease could make it difficult for you to sell your business or your lease. There are many things to consider and expert legal advice is essential.

We provide a full lease service for landlords and tenants which includes drafting or checking the lease, negotiating the lease terms with the other side’s solicitors, dealing with completion and any Land Registry formalities.

Lease Checking Service

We will check the terms of the lease you are offered and then produce a lease report for you so that you know that it is suitable for your needs and you understand the obligations you are taking on. If any terms are unacceptable to you, we can prepare alternative provisions which we can submit to the landlord’s solicitors on your behalf.

Lease Drafting Service

If you are a landlord and have agreed a lease with a prospective tenant then we can draft a lease for you. We will listen to your exact requirements and then advise you as to what we consider will best suit your needs in respect of the lease terms. We will put together a lease tailored for you or your business.

Assignment of Leases

If you want to exit your lease by transferring (assigning) it to someone else or, if you wish to take over an existing lease, then the landlord’s permission will be required in the form of a Licence to Assign. There will also need to be an agreement between the existing tenant and the new tenant dealing with the terms of the assignment. We can act for existing tenants, new tenants or landlords in a lease assignment.
