Commercial Property Solicitors South Side, Glasgow, Scotland

  • The Law Society of Scotland

Buying, selling and leasing commercial properties are complex undertakings, involving extensive negotiations and many legal formalities. Here at Claphams, we regularly advise commercial landlords and tenants, as well as investors, on important aspects of commercial property law. Our highly professional team provides a comprehensive commercial conveyancing service that focuses on protecting our clients’ best interests and reputations. We also provide residential conveyancing services.

When you instruct Claphams, we’ll start by listening to your commercial needs and wishes. We’ll then provide tailored advice for your situation. We work closely with commercial estate agents in the local area, so our market knowledge is always relevant, current and in-depth. We concentrate on identifying the issues and creating effective solutions, allowing you to achieve your business goals.

As part of our partner-led personal conveyancing service, you will have access to an expert conveyancing solicitor, who is contactable whenever you need them during your conveyancing transaction.

Whether you’re thinking of taking your first step onto the commercial property ladder or you’re an established investor, it’s important to instruct experienced conveyancing solicitors who’ll provide expert advice on the local commercial property market and ensure your transaction goes smoothly – from negotiating the terms of the contract of sale to the post-completion requirements.

If you’re buying a property, you might not think to contact conveyancing solicitors until you’ve had an offer accepted. However, at Claphams, we can assist from the outset, by providing advice on different types of property, and information on the local commercial market and local estate agents.

Claphams are on all main lendors panels, including Halifax, Virgin, LLoyds, Bank of Ireland, Accord, Bank of Scotland, RBS, Natwest, Santander, First Direct, Yorkshire Building Society, Credit Union, Leeds, Nationwide, TSB, Cheltenham & Gloucester, Barclays, Cooperative, Clydesdale, Skipton & Woolwich.

We’ll also use our local insight to get you the best deal in the area you’re looking to buy in.

If you plan to sell a property, we’ll use our broad commercial knowledge and expert negotiating skills to get you the best possible return for your sale, in a quick and efficient manner. 

Some of the areas we provide practical advice on are:

Commercial Leasing Lawyers Giffnock, Southside 

Drafting commercial leases is a complex process. The terms of the lease can place long-term obligations on landlords and tenants and dictate what should happen in the case of a dispute between the parties. So, it’s important that these terms are clearly drafted from the start, and that they protect your rights and interests.

We can advise on all aspects of commercial leases, including:

  • Rent amounts;
  • Rent reviews;
  • Repairs;
  • Termination clauses;
  • Extension clauses; and
  • Licenses.

There is indeed very little legislation in relation to commercial leases in Scotland. This is in stark contrast to the position regarding residential property where a significant amount of legislation has been passed and indeed can also be contrasted with the position in England where much more legislation exists. When it comes to commercial property, however, the view is that negotiation between the parties is the order of the day. Very often the nature of the contract will depend upon the effective negotiating powers of the parties and commercial expediency.
