Commercial Property

If you have a commercial property, your business will rely upon it to trade. It may be a café, shop, pub, office or warehouse – whatever it is, it needs to be cared for. QualitySolicitors Howlett Clarke can advise on leases, laws and litigation so you can carry on doing business.

Buying, selling, leasing or just working from a commercial property is different to a domestic one. Issues that arise are unlikely to be part of a normal conveyance. That’s why Howlett Clarke has specialist lawyers, lawyers that understand commercial property matters. What remains unchanged is the need to conduct the correct searches, negotiate contracts and resolve issues.

QualitySolicitors Howlett Clarke helps businesses like you. We take complex commercial property matters and make them simple. We use plain English, not legal jargon. Likely timescales, costs and outcomes are explained at the start, and we keep in regular contact throughout. And any questions you have, we make sure we deal with them promptly.

To speak to one of our friendly, knowledgeable solicitors give us a call on 01273 327272. With our free initial assessment and same day response promises, you can easily find out what your options are before planning your next steps.
