Commercial property law FAQs

What is commercial conveyancing?

Conveyancing itself is the process of legally transferring the title of a property from one party to another. As you might expect, commercial conveyancing involves properties that are used for business purposes, such as office buildings or a warehouse.

The general conveyancing process includes all of the various administrative and legal tasks that need to be completed to ensure that a transaction is legally valid.

How much does commercial conveyancing cost?

The fees involved in commercial property conveyancing will depend on various factors, including the title to property, the work that needs to be carried out, and the general complexity of the transaction.

The legal fees you can expect to pay your commercial conveyancing solicitors are paid alongside various disbursements, which could include:

  • Land Registry fees
  • Property searches
  • VAT
  • Stamp Duty Land Tax

It is important to stress that every commercial property transaction is unique, which is why it is important to speak to an expert solicitor. When instructed, our team can give you an accurate estimate of the likely costs involved in your transaction so you can plan accordingly before proceeding.

What is the commercial conveyancing process?

The precise steps involved in commercial conveyancing will vary from transaction to transaction, but there are some common steps of which you should be aware.

Typically, the commercial conveyancing process starts with a commercial property solicitor investigating the property title and raising various enquiries. Once these are answered and the contract is in an agreed form, parties can proceed to  exchange of contracts. Once contracts are exchanged, the transaction is legally binding.

On completion, the buyer’s conveyancer pays the purchase price to the seller’s solicitors, along with any Stamp Duty Land Tax to HMRC. An application to HM Land Registry is also submitted.

Depending on the transaction, there may also be a need for a commercial lease to be negotiated.

How long does a commercial property transaction take?

The time it takes for a commercial property transaction from instruction to completion will vary. Straightforward transactions are likely to take around 8 to 12 weeks to reach completion, though various factors could change this timeframe significantly.
