Commercial property law covers all aspects of the purchase, use and management of property used for business purposes. This includes the granting, purchase and sale of commercial leases, commercial funding, complex investment and development agreements. Commercial property has its own complex set of rules which control the use of property and govern the relationship between landlords and tenants. These rules differ from those governing residential property transactions.

Commercial property solicitors are tasked with explaining and applying this complex area of law in many different situations. We have an experienced team of specialist commercial property lawyers, based both in our London and Guildford offices who provide a comprehensive and practical service covering all aspects of commercial property work.
