Site acquisitions

BPE's Commercial Property team is very well experienced in site acquisitions for both commercial and residential end users, acting for individual developers on 2 to 3 plots to much larger developments. Together with the construction team a whole service offering is available from acquisition and construction to plot sales as well as any supporting you with any contentious construction issues both during and after the build.

Development of land and related real estate

As well as handling acquisitions and disposals, our commercial property lawyers regularly work with clients on the development of land and related real estate. Our expert teams have dealt with both developers and anchor tenants, and have handled many such projects including the redevelopment of Llanelli Scarlets stadium, strategic sites in York and Castleford, and Gloucester Cattle Market. The scale of these projects mean a wide range of specialisms are needed.

  • Bespoke team - we assess each project and create a team to meet every need.
  • Public funding - we have experience dealing with publicly funded projects working with a mixture of public and private corporations.
  • Private funding - experience in working with banks and knowledge of their requirements 

Procurement and contract advice

Whether you are commissioning the design and construction of a new building, refurbishing an existing structure or undertaking an engineering or renewables project, you have to make sure that the legal structure reflects the commercial set up. We work alongside you and your Project Managers to gain a thorough understanding, and advise on getting the framework right. That way, you know you won't face expensive changes further down the line.

Negotiation lease renewal

When approaching a lease renewal, it's important to get it right. We can help you negotiate terms including break options, rent free periods and rent reviews.

Dilapidations

If your growing business means you need to look for bigger premises you'll need to check your maintenance and repair obligations under your lease agreement.

Dilapidation claims can prove costly and can include the cost of cleaning, redecoration and stripping out any alterationsyou may have made to your existing premises. Landlords can also claim surveyors and lawyers fees on top.

We can help by looking over your lease agreement before you commit to anything and if you're facing a batttle over dilapidations, we have the expertise to help you through it.
