Frequently Asked Questions

Yes you can. There will be no need for a new lease to be granted. A purchaser of the freehold will automatically become the Landlord of the tenants on the terms of the existing lease. Obviously, if you are buying a property with tenants in situ, you should therefore be careful to ensure that you are happy to ‘inherit’ those tenants and ensure that you are aware of the contents of, and the rights arising under, any existing lease or occupation.

It is not absolutely necessary, but it is a good idea if the Heads of Terms contain points that you are not absolutely sure about. It is often the case that parties agree Heads of Terms and then, when the meanings or consequences of some of the terms are subsequently explained by a solicitor, the parties had not fully appreciated the meaning or consequences of those terms. It is then difficult to change any of the terms of the transaction after the Heads of Terms have been ‘agreed’.

Yes it is, although the rates and reliefs vary from that payable on residential properties.

It really depends what you want to do. Planning Permission may be required if you wish to carry out substantial or external works or if you wish to change the use of the Property. Buildings Regulations Approval may be required if structural works are being carried out. If the Property is Listed, further consents will be required.

Yes you can, although you should be careful to ensure that there are no restrictions affecting the Property (whether on the title or in terms of planning restrictions) that would affect the proposed use.

Mr Hole

 

Stephen was friendly and approachable and our meetings were never rushed. This gave adequate time to discuss any matters arising and ensure any questions answered correctly. Stephen was easy to contact, thanks to his secretary, and any email or call from us was responded to very quickly. At times by return!

Stephen Burke

Hamblett

 

Ifzal and his team assisted us in securing a lease with Nissan over a strategically important site in our portfolio. Ifzal and his team made the job as painless as possible. He kept us in the loop and helped explain the progress made in plain English. We were very impressed how quickly his team completed the matter.
