We acquire commercial property for clients to lease, or purchase as an investment or for occupation.

Our approach is strategic, acting on opportunities to add value. We are best placed to identify options due to our market knowledge, experience and contacts network.

Without our informed professional advice the acquisition of commercial property can be a time consuming, frustrating and often unsuccessful process.

Acquiring without informed professional advice may result in subsequent liabilities which can be costly and otherwise avoided.

We often have detailed knowledge of and acquire off-market opportunities for our clients.

What we do

If you’re looking to buy, lease or invest in a commercial property our experienced team of experts will provide you the peace of mind to acquire in confidence.

  • Engage with the client to understand business needs and provide initial advice.
  • Search for and report on suitable options identified using an extensive property contacts network, site inspection and use of exclusive intranet media.
  • Negotiate and agree the acquisition terms and conditions for client approval.
  • Identify and resolve any outstanding issues before instructing solicitors.
  • Throughout the legal process advise the client and work with solicitors to completion.
