Our Commercial Property services include:

Land assembly is a critical process of any major property development project. It refers to the process of forming a single site from a number of properties – usually for economic development purposes. It includes the acquisition and, eventually, development/redevelopment of the property, as well as the removal of any restrictive conditions stated in any paperwork – all of which we will help you with.

Our team helps you with acquisitions and disposals by helping structure deals, drafting agreements, conducting all required due diligence and, generally speaking, dealing with all arrangements of a commercial property transaction.

We act on behalf of both landlords and tenants in relation to commercial property leases, in sectors as diverse as retail, leisure, construction and manufacturing. Our services for commercial leases include: the drafting of negotiating terms, resolving issues, and dealing with break notices.

Our landlord and tenant specialists advise both parties on everything from debt recovery to maintenance issues. We also act on behalf of Right to Manage Companies, Managing Agents, Freeholders & Developers, Landlords and Insolvency Practitioners.

Our equity funding and finance team provide legal advice to various property investors regarding projects like multi-let apartment blocks, retail spaces and other residential projects.

We help with all aspects of the property development process, from drafting documents and dealing with sales/lettings to site acquisitions and providing advice around purchasing.

The commercial property team at Abacus ensure that you never fall foul of any laws or legislation. Our services include: waste disposal and management issues, planning law and enforcement, regulatory compliance and corporate and individual environmental liability.

We assist landlords with a variety of issues, including: renewing lease terms, licensing issues, negotiating legal processes regarding new tenancies and dilapidation cases. Our commercial property team also helps tenants by providing advice around tenancy agreements and various other stages of the process.

We work with landlords, tenants, and property developers to help them resolve a variety of issues, from adverse possession claims and outstanding rent to lease renewals and trespass claims.

Section 106 agreements (otherwise known as planning agreements) are private agreements made between local authorities and developers. We help by mediating communication between both parties to ensure a smooth process.
