With so many elements involved in the successful running of a business, one of the biggest factors to consider from the outset is the property you choose as your base. Location, size, potential for expansion and development, as well as neighbouring land and property are all things that need to be carefully considered. You need to ensure that you are protected when it comes to possible third party development proposals that may impact you, service charge agreements, legalities of financial situations such as buying or selling in the future, and a whole host of other factors that legal backing will be prevalent for.
At Bailey & Cogger, our Commercial Property team can act on behalf of landlords, tenants, investors and developers to ensure whichever process you decide upon is executed in the most timely and cost effective way possible.
