Freehold Purchase

Purchasing a Commercial Property is an important step in the growth or expansion of your business, or may be your business if you are an investor or developer.  You want to make sure it is done properly, but also quickly and cost-effectively.  I have acted on the purchase of Commercial Property of all sizes for over 14 years.  I’ve acted for owner occupiers looking to purchase new premises, investors looking to buy a good investment and place a good tenant (see my Lease pages here for more information on that) and developers purchasing a green or brown field site for development.  Industrial units, shops, factories, offices – I’ve assisted Buyers with them all.  I can help you to purchase the property you need on time, and budget, and with the minimum of fuss.

“John’s commitment and attention to detail on the purchase of this project was exceptional. His knowledge and communication during the transaction left us feeling totally reassured

James Austin, Director of Ackleton Estates Limited

You may not have reached the stage of having a retained solicitor at present, or you may do, but are unhappy with increasing costs or dipping service levels.  Do you find you instruct a partner at your solicitor’s firm, pay for the partner’s time, but actually find that the work is being carried out by an inexperienced legal assistant?  Do you wish that you could call your solicitor directly, but find that you are only ever given the number for reception and can never get through?  Do you wish that your solicitor was more pro-active – identifying issues up front, rather than waiting until the last moment, meaning that your purchase and fit out is delayed whilst you wait for something to be resolved?

If the answer to any of these questions is “yes”, then you will be pleased to hear that there is a better way.  I am a consultant solicitor and Partner with Nexa Law.  All work is carried out through Nexa Law, who are authorised and regulated by the SRA.  However, unlike a traditional law firm, you will not find yourself dealing with the least qualified person who can handle your case as soon as possible.  Instead, if you instruct me, you will find that your transaction is handled by me.  As an experienced solicitor who has worked for 11 years at international law firm Eversheds and 5 years at regional law firm Thursfields, I have the breadth and depth of experience to be able to deal handle any Commercial Property purchase, from the most straightforward to the most complex.  You will have my direct contact details and my direct dial, which means you will be able to speak with the solicitor handling your case, rather than support staff who cannot answer your questions.  As a technically excellent solicitor, issues will be identified early, allowing them to be resolved in good time for completion.

Examples of my experience include:

  • Acting for an aluminium processing company in Bridgnorth on the purchase of additional land to expand their existing factory site.
  • Acting for a property developer on the acquisition of a brownfield site for development into a petrol station, and then dealing with all the follow through work – cleaning up the title, financing and re-financing, agreement for lease and lease with the tenant and ongoing management issues.
  • Acting for a marketing company on the acquisition of bigger office premises to accommodate their growing staff and business.

Following our initial conversation, I will scope out the work that you have requested me to do and provide you with a realistic and competitive fee estimate. Don’t worry about calling in the first instance though – that will always be free, as I need to find about your business or your query before quoting, and don’t charge for any initial discussion.

If you want to find out more about the process of purchasing a Commercial Property, then a guide will be available to download soon.  In the meantime, you can download my free guide to selling Commercial Property by clicking here. This will give you an overview of the process from the point of view of the Seller, but will help you the areas that need to be considered on a purchase too.  A dedicated guide to purchasing will be available soon, so make sure to keep checking back to the website for more details.

This guide will answer the following key questions:

  • What is involved? An overview of the key steps involved.
  • How long does it take? A consideration of typical timeframes.
  • How much will it cost? A review of my approach to costings.

The guide will then take you through the basic steps of a Commercial Property sale:

Phase 1 – Due Diligence Preparation

Phase 2 – Agree Heads of Terms

Phase 3 – Due Diligence

Phase 4 – Contract

Phase 5 – Negotiation/Specific Enquiries

Phase 6 – Exchange and Completion

Phase 7 – Post Completion

I have 14 years’ experience of helping Buyers successfully purchase Commercial Property.  Buyers want the job completed on time and on budget, and that is what I pride myself on delivering.
