Commercial Property

The Commercial Property team covers all kinds of commercial property work for all kinds of clients.

Our experienced commercial property solicitors in Sheffield act on major developments both on behalf of developers and funders at one end of the spectrum and act for small businesses and individuals in taking short term leases of premises at the other end. In all the work we do, however, we put the client first so that we give a client focused commercially aware service at a cost which is appropriate for the job.

We have particular strengths in the following areas:

  • Acquisitions of commercial and residential investment property.
  • Residential development and sales.
  • Retail and out of town property development.
  • Taking security on behalf of a substantial number of banks and financial institutions.
  • Asset management on behalf of substantial property owning companies.
  • Landlord and tenant work.

We are committed to delivering the results that our clients want within timescales that they require and we are happy wherever possible to agree fees in advance. Clients appreciate that all work in the department is partner led and that we have a culture whereby we are available to our clients either by direct dial, email or mobile phones.

We operate very much within the commercial property market and talk on a regular basis with surveyors and commercial property lenders. We therefore appreciate market trends which informs the advice that we give and the way we structure and handle transactions. We therefore operate in a way which is appropriate to the market and not necessarily like a traditional solicitor’s office

 Our Commercial Property team are recommended in the UK Legal 500 2020.
