PROPERTY


LANDLORD & TENANT
 

We act for both Landlords and Tenants in drafting and negotiating commercial leases of shops, offices, factories, warehouses, flats and houses. For tenants especially, negotiation of repairing covenants, options to break, and rent review clauses are a particular speciality.

We also assist a large number of our farming clients with the letting of commercial units in converted farm buildings.

Our clients include private individuals, trustees, companies, builders, landowners and farmers who all have a common need for specialist yet cost effective advice.

TRANSFERS OF EQUITY
 

A Trust may be created during a person's lifetime, on death by a Will or under the Intestacy Rules where a person does not leave a Will. The creation of a Trust is the alternative to giving property to someone outright.

A Trust comes into being when assets are transferred by an individual to Trustees who hold these assets for the benefit of one or more persons who will receive income and/or capital from the Trust.

The requirements for trusts to achieve tax benefits are complex and it is vital to seek professional advice before creating any form of Trust. The administration of any Trust may also have complexities. Our experienced team are able to:

Advise on Trusts in connection with your personal circumstances.

Draft Trust Deeds and associated documents

Administer the Trust

Act as Trustees, where appropriate
