We act on behalf of tenants and landlords to help with the legalities of taking on a lease of premises and running a business from a commercial property. We can deal with the sale and purchase of businesses, advising on all commercial transactions. The law surrounding ownership and leasing rights can be difficult to navigate without a lawyer – it often isn’t as simple as buying and setting up a business. We make recommendations that simplify the process of dealing with commercial property, allowing you to concentrate on what is important – your business.
TYPES OF COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES
A commercial property is defined as a building or land that is used to generate a profit. This could be in the form of capital gain or rental income.
These are some of the main types of commercial property that we can help you with:
Office buildings From single person places of work to entire office complexes, we can help with sales and lettings.
Industrial buildings We regularly deal with the legal side of owning or leasing industrial buildings on behalf of businesses.
Residential properties When residential properties are your business, we can represent you as a landlord.
Retail and restaurants Licensing, leasing and sales are all areas where we can help. We can oversee the process of applying for business licences.
It could even affect places like community or village halls: if alcohol is sold on your premises, you need to be licensed.
The Licensing Act of 2005 introduced a new system of licensing to sell alcohol and provide entertainment. Apex Law have expertise in this specialist area and we know all the implications of the system. We act on your behalf, submitting applications for Premises Licenses with the relevant authorities.
