Real Estate

Practical property advice for businesses and charities.

Buying, selling, leasing or managing property is a big step. Whether you’re investing in a new development, a listed building, or anything in between, we can help. Including if you’re a not-for-profit, with charity law to navigate alongside the usual financial, people and planning challenges.

We work with commercial and other organisations, social enterprises and charities alike, working in a range of sectors – from negotiating property agreements to leases to finance to development agreements.  We work alongside the large and the small, from owners such as the BFI to smaller community organisations.

As a B Corp, sustainability is close to our hearts. So, we also advise on environmental and sustainability issues – meaning your property makes its mark, without making a mark on the planet.

How we help

We can advise you on the full life cycle of your property assets, including supporting you on development projects and funding, as well as buying, selling and landlord and tenant matters.

We’ll solve disputes. We also handle planning and tax issues, as well as insolvency and receivership. We can even assist with getting your phones and internet set up if wayleaves are needed.

If you’re a charity, we’ll also make sure you understand your responsibilities and how charity law affects your property plans.

Real Estate fixed fee packages

As the current climate continues to throw up issues for occupiers, landlords and tenants, we’re offering fixed fee packaged services to help.
