Commercial property

Purchasing, selling and leasing

For any business, large or small, the premises you operate from will be a significant part of your operating and establishment costs.

If you are leasing, you need to ensure you are benefitting from a fair and secure tenancy agreement. If you own the property, you need to ensure this key asset is fully protected and that it is fully exploited to optimise the return on this investment.

At Tayntons, our commercial property specialists have extensive knowledge and experience across all types of transaction. This can include the sale or purchase of leasehold or freehold properties, commercial leases, and pension investments. 

Whether you are a small start-up business, or an established and expanding company, we will provide expert and practical guidance and advice to ensure you get the most out of your commercial property arrangements.

Offices and industrial, retail and hospitality

The types of commercial property we are most actively involved with range from offices, industrial units and warehouse facilities, to shops and other retail businesses, hotels and restaurants, and care homes. We also act on behalf of clients with multiple property portfolios.

Our services extend to the purchase of sites for redevelopment. We will also advise on any plans you might have to expand or downsize your current business premises, or to relocate elsewhere.

Commercial leases

Whether you are a landlord or tenant of a commercial property, it is vital to have proper safeguards in place when entering into a leasing arrangement. This is essential to ensure a fair and appropriate landlord/tenant relationship. It also ensures awareness of and adherence to current commercial property legislation.

At Tayntons, we handle leasing arrangements across a wide range of property types. This also extends across a wide range of related issues, such as rent reviews, renewals and terminations, repair obligations, and the rights and implications of breaking a lease and any associated penalties.

Property pension investments

For UK-based pension schemes there are particular advantages in purchasing or investing in certain types of property. This can include tax-free rental income and the ability to place such assets beyond the reach of creditors.

The range of eligible properties includes hotels, student accommodation and care homes. The purchase of land for the development of residential or general commercial property can also be eligible.

A free initial consultation

If your company or organisation is about to consider moving to new premises, or change the scope or nature of your existing occupancy arrangements, an important first step is to seek expert legal advice.

At Tayntons, we offer a free initial consultation to help you identify the key issues that might arise. Should you wish us to act on your behalf we will then provide a firm and detailed quote, so you will know the full schedule of fees before proceeding.

Our service is always personalised, with an experienced professional involved in your case and a legally-trained coordinator assigned as your personal contact. Our fee structure is transparent and competitive.
