Getting the right legal advice for your business property transaction

Buying or selling a business typically involves the transfer of real estate, so it stands to reason that you will need a commercial property solicitor. However, the purchase or sale of a business as a going concern is a corporate transaction and requires specialist legal services.

Wellers Reece-Jones commercial property solicitors in Kent work closely with our corporate law professionals in London. Our clients receive comprehensive legal advice which protects and advances their interests in relation to the property conveyancing aspects of their transaction, but they also receive expert advice in respect of the corporate provisions relating to compliance with the Companies Act.

Commercial acquisitions and disposals

There are numerous factors to be considered when buying or selling businesses. Our team can provide legal advice in relation to:

  • Transfer of assets – Asset Purchase Agreements
  • Lease assignment – Land registration and appropriate permissions
  • Employment issues – TUPE regulations and settlement/compromise agreements where applicable

We are here to help identify the areas of risk involved with your business sale or purchase and to provide solutions for any problems which may occur. Working alongside our corporate and litigation colleagues at Wellers Law Group in London provides us with a wealth of experience and a breadth and depth of knowledge that many commercial property solicitors just can’t match.

Commercial property and businesses – finance and deal structure

We assist clients with commercial acquisitions and business disposals for all types of commercial property type, including whole businesses, and whether through private sale or auction. We can assist with financing issues and drafting heads of terms when necessary, for example if an acquisition is a joint venture.

We carry out due diligence – ensuring the business has legal title to sell, owns all assets and that any regulatory and litigation issues have been addressed fully. Other services include drafting the sale of contract and all necessary post completion work involving the Inland Revenue, HM Land Registry and Companies House.

We have experience in the negotiation of business leases and, in Kent, have particular experience with pharmacies, dentist surgeries and other healthcare practices.
