Offering Pragmatic, Commercial Advice

Keith Griffiths, Commercial Property Specialist

Commercial Property Transactions

Sales and Acquisitions

No two commercial property transactions are ever the same and we are adept at tailoring our service to meet your needs and the requirements of the transaction. We can assist you with the sale and purchase of all types of freehold and leasehold commercial property ranging from bare land to retail shops, offices, investment properties and industrial sites.

Landlord and Tenant

We negotiate leases, together with a full range of property management services including licences to assign, sublet or carry out works, lease renewals and surrenders. Commercial leases are complex documents and the importance of seeking advice on the terms of a lease cannot be overstated. We encourage our clients to involve us at the heads of terms stage in negotiating new leases, as a clear set of terms which are agreed and understood by both parties at the outset can help to save a great deal of time and stress in the latter stages of the transaction.

Property Development

Amicus Commercial supports clients in the sale and purchase of land for commercial and residential development. We are experienced in dealing with all aspects of the acquisition of land for development including the negotiation of conditional contracts, option and pre-emption agreements, planning agreements and highways and other infra-structure related agreements. We can also assist with promotion and collaboration agreements.


Property Finance

If you are seeking secured lending, from private secured loans to institutional lending and re-finance projects, we can help. Securing finance for a property acquisition or development project, or simply re-financing existing property assets, can be a long and stressful process. Lenders will, as a matter of course, expect a full due diligence exercise to be undertaken and are generally risk averse. We guide you through each stage of the process and strive to make the process as painless and straightforward as possible.

Business Sales and Acquisitions

Our property lawyers work closely with our corporate team in handling the property aspects of business transactions to ensure the process is smooth and seamless for our clients, and in property disputes, upporting our litigation team in dealing with all types of dispute including landlord and tenant matters, overage payments, restrictive covenants, planning and rights of way and light.

The right advice from your experienced local commercial property lawyer, when buying or selling property, is vital to ensure that no stone is left unturned. Protecting one of your largest investments is why it is so important that you seek the right legal advice.
