    FAQs - Commercial Property

    What is commercial property law?

    Commercial property law governs the rights and interests in commercial real estate, including the sale, purchase, lease, and development of commercial properties such as offices, retail spaces, warehouses, and industrial units.

    How does commercial property differ from residential property?

    Commercial property primarily refers to buildings or land intended to generate profit, either from capital gains or rental income. Residential property is designed for living purposes.

    Do I need a solicitor when buying or selling commercial property?

    While not a legal requirement, having a solicitor ensures that your interests are protected, legal obligations are met, and any potential issues or disputes can be handled efficiently.

    What are 'heads of terms' in a commercial lease?

    Heads of terms set out the main terms agreed upon between the landlord and tenant before the lease is drafted. They act as a framework for the lease but are usually not legally binding.

    Can I terminate a commercial lease early?

    Terminating a commercial lease early can be complicated and might require certain conditions or break clauses in the lease agreement. It’s advisable to consult with a solicitor to understand the terms and potential penalties.
