What are some Commercial Property Law considerations during a transaction?

Commercial property law can be a complex subject, especially as a business may base its operations in the premises. Some special considerations must be taken when compared to residential property transactions. You may need to consider:

Is the property in a favourable location for the business?

You may need to consider proximity to other vital businesses such as suppliers, access to infrastructure, and the potential for future growth in the area.

Are you, or the buyer, planning to use the building solely for its current purpose and in its current shape?

If developments and modifications to the property are in future plans, this should all be considered before buying or selling the premises.

Is the business taking over the property subject to special regulations?

Laws regarding health and safety, environmental laws, or accessibility may require modifications to the building.

Is the property’s title correctly registered?

Ensure there are no foreseeable issues regarding the property registration or ownership. All liabilities related to the property’s documentation should be reviewed.

Is the property currently leased?

If there is an active tenancy in the property, the current lease agreement and the terms and conditions of the tenancy must be assessed. The new owner may be able to negotiate new tenancy agreement terms.


Each commercial property transaction is unique, so you may need to consider additional factors that relate to the property you are going to buy or sell specifically. With the help of Rowlinsons’ Commercial Property Solicitors, you can be sure of the best possible outcome, keeping your business’s interests as a priority at all times.
