I work on a broad range of real estate matters, including sales and purchases of both freehold and leasehold property. I assist with landlord and tenant matters such as granting and taking leases, lease assignments, underlettings and licences. I also have experience on real estate finance matters, having acting for both lenders and borrowers.
I act for a variety of clients ranging from commercial organisations, banks and financial institutions to charities, social enterprises and public bodies.
I advise sporting bodies such the Football Foundation, Rugby Football Union and Lawn Tennis Association regarding taking security over property and funding issues arising for both charitable grants and loans.
I work with several retail clients, including Urbn UK Limited, assisting them with their sites in England and Wales. This has involved advising on the acquisition of new sites and also helping with on-going management issues, such as licences.
The loans were to enable the charity to undertake a significant new development to build new affordable housing. I assisted with securing the loans over a large portfolio of properties, involving complex title issues and restrictive planning requirements.
