Selling commercial property


Our commercial property department is located in the East Midlands, where all of our professional commercial property lawyers have extensive experience in the sale of commercial property.

The steps below are a guide to give you an idea of the process of selling commercial property and what a solicitor will need to do:


The first step is usually heads of terms from your selling agent which we review and discuss with you. Without using lots of legal jargon, we like to connect with our customers in plain English, to understand what you need us to achieve.


Once we have grasped your goals and the details of your deal, we can give you an idea of the timeframes and costs involved.


The Commercial Property Sale Process


Commercial property transactions are all different but most will share some basic characteristics. We will assist you on all aspects of your sale. Here are the common basic steps we will take:


  • Negotiating the Heads of Terms, liaising with the agents and other lawyers involved in the deal, if necessary
  • Preparing the sale contract and negotiating amendments proposed by the purchaser
  • Deducing your title to the property to the purchasers and dealing with any matters arising
  • Responding to standard enquiries and other particular enquiries posed by the buyer or their solicitor
  • Where there is borrowing, corresponding with your lender and repaying any mortgage
  • Completion of the transaction and accounting for the net sales income to you
