Getting the right premises for your business in Edinburgh or Glasgow can be a difficult and demanding process – it can also be the difference between the success and failure of your company.

When taking advice on leasing premises for your business, it pays to take the advice of an expert business conveyancing solicitor. Gibson Kerr have acted for a range of businesses across the full spectrum of business transactions.

Legal advice for all business sectors 

Whether you are leasing a shop, warehouse, office, bar or restaurant, Gibson Kerr can help. The legal process involved in leasing business premises involves taking into account many considerations. As well as the obvious things such as the length of the lease and the rent payable, you have to think about break options, rent review, the tenant’s liability to pay for repairs and insurance issues.

If you are purchasing the business at the same time this requires a separate agreement. In order to ensure that your interests are protected at all times it is vital to instruct an experienced commercial conveyancing solicitor. We handle commercial transactions for all types of businesses and for all types of property. From sole traders through to companies, we have the experience and local knowledge to assist with every type of commercial conveyancing transaction.
