We work with a number of clients who wish to acquire or hold property for investment or development purposes.
We advise them on the acquisition or disposal of the property, including the granting or taking of occupational leases.
Harrison Drury also offers a range of specialist services to deal with problems that can arise with tenanted portfolios, or for developers who experience problems including adverse rights over their site, or problems gaining access to a potential development plot.
One of the biggest decisions taken by a business is acquiring or disposing of the premises from which its business is run. Harrison Drury can advise on all aspects of this process, including complex issues which arise when considering occupying premises under a commercial lease which may contain onerous obligations that the business tenant must be aware of before committing to the lease.
We also advise businesses wishing to acquire or sell freehold or long leasehold premises and work in conjunction with tax advisers to ensure the business gets the most cost-effective solution.
Our commercial property clients also benefit from a dispute resolution team with vast experience of finding solutions to property problems which fall outside the boundaries of standard commercial property practice.
At Harrison Drury, we make sure our clients know all of their options and that we will give them informed advice if problems do arise.
Buying a home is the biggest financial transaction most people will ever make and at Harrison Drury we have the expertise to guide you through the legal maze of buying, selling or re-mortgaging a property.
We pride ourselves on providing our clients with a professional, friendly and effective service which results in a high percentage of our work being repeat business or recommendations.
