OUR SERVICES

In a fiercely competitive commercial climate, our experienced property team acts on complex and demanding transactions that range from single property deals to large investment portfolios.

Regularly acting on behalf of banks, institutions, builders, retailers along with commercial and residential developers from the UK and overseas, we provide knowledgeable and informed advice that is jargon-free and has a human face.

Our daily work encompasses contentious and non-contentious transactions such as the sale or purchase of investment portfolios, whether for large investments or single properties:

  • help with funding arrangements
  • joint venture structuring and secured lending
  • work on planning agreements and construction contracts
  • landlord and tenant work
  • leasehold enfranchisement
  • advice and support on aspects as varied as pre-lets to a range of property and construction related disputes.

Residential

Choosing the right solicitor can help prevent an exciting experience from becoming a stressful one. Whether you are a first time buyer or a seasoned investor, SBP Law provide a friendly service from our experienced, efficient and approachable professionals. We offer a fixed fee for residential conveyancing work which eliminates the worry associated with potentially spiralling costs, and guarantee to keep you fully informed at every stage of the transaction.

We also deal with all aspects of:

  • re-mortgages
  • transfers of property following relationship breakdown
  • gifts of property
  • trusts

Commercial

If you’re involved in purchasing, selling or leasing commercial property, either as an owner, occupier, investor or developer, high quality legal advice is an essential part of the process.

We appoint a single point of contact from our team of commercial conveyancing solicitors to work alongside your estate agent to ensure a regular flow of updates, advice and information during the transaction.

Our commercial conveyancing solicitors have a wide range of property experience including:

  • compulsory land purchase
  • corporate property finance
  • disputes and property litigation
  • estate development & plot sales
  • estate management
  • leases
  • PFI
  • property development
  • sale and leaseback
  • sales and purchases
  • secured lending

We handle any type of property from shops and offices, industrial units, commercial trading estates, retail and leisure developments.

We take a practical and commercial approach aimed at helping you complete your property deals quickly, with confidence and with value for money.

For those new to commercial conveyancing, we offer a hands-on service to guide you through the maze of issues you need to consider before agreeing terms.

At SBP Law, we have considerable expertise in dealing with lease extensions and collective purchase of a Freehold by tenants. Our Property Department acts for both Landlords and Tenants.

The right for a residential tenant to extend their lease or purchase the Freehold is enshrined in two pieces of legislation. The Leasehold Reform Act 1967 (if the property is a house) and the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 (if the property is a flat).

If the tenant and property qualify under the rules set out in the legislation, the tenant can extend the lease of their flat for a period of 90 years upon paying an agreed Tribunal-determined premium OR can purchase the freehold (if the property is a house) OR join with their neighbours to buy the freehold of the building (if the property is a flat).

We also deal extensively with the Right to Manage regime intoduced by the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002. In a block of flats, the tenants have the right collectively to manage the building via a formal Right to Manage company.

We can assist with general advice and can oversee the entire process from initial notice through to completion.
