Commercial Property

Penny Paddle

Joint Managing Partner & Head of Commercial Property

We deal with all aspects of commercial property. In a nutshell, commercial property consists of any land or property with a business use or which is the asset of a business. It can therefore be anything from acquiring a small office space to an industrial unit. Dealing with such property transactions can be complicated so at Paddle & Cocks we try to keep matters as simple as possible. If you have a query about any commercial property transaction please contact us for a no obligation discussion.

We can assist you with the following transactions:

  • Buying and selling the freehold of commercial/business property;
  • Joint Ventures and Development Agreements;
  • Landlord’s consent to alter, vary or assign leases as relevant;
  • The legal aspects of refinancing commercial property including debentures, directors’ guarantees and mortgages over third party property;
  • Acting for you in the taking of bridging finance;
  • The sale and purchase of businesses where there is a property element;
  • The granting or taking of commercial leases;
  • Assignment of leases;
