Commercial Property

At GoodyBurrett LLP our team of experienced lawyers provides a complete service to our business clients, every day. Our clients range from sole traders, partnerships, limited companies and charities.

How can we help?

Every business needs a premises to trade from and we can help you secure one, whether you are starting from scratch or expanding into your 3rd office.

Alternatively, if you are a landlord and granting a lease we can advise you on the transaction, draft the documentation you need and ensure this is done in a cost effective and timely fashion.

Our team appreciates your transaction needs to be considered within the context of your businesses size, sector and with consideration to your employees if they are being required to move; we always think commercially.

Commercial Tenants

If you are leasing a property for your business it needs to be on the terms that you understand and that are beneficial to you.

Our team will ensure that you are clear on what the lease expects of you and what your landlord is obliged to do and that it matches, as best it can, what you need. We will also assist in the appropriate preliminary searches and checks to ensure the property is the one for you.

If you need to sublet or assign a lease (or simply want to know what this means and whether you can) we can advise on these issues too.

Commercial Landlords

If you are letting a property, whether this is the main business you do or whether you are letting an asset as an additional income stream the property department at GoodyBurrett LLP is more than happy to assist.

We can advise of the pros and cons of a longer lease, the types of break clauses a lease can include and how to maintain the best rent with rent review clauses. We are also more than happy to work with you if you’d like to serve a break notice or received on from your tenant, whether or not we drafted the lease.

Agricultural Property

Colchester is still one of the few towns with an active livestock market and with farm land close by.

If you own farmland or have a query on a more agricultural transaction we are happy to help.

Frequently farm land will be unregistered which is a secondary aspect to a sale/purchase transaction. The property team are well equipped and experienced in to the registering of land and can attend to that in addition to the main transaction you require us for. If you’d like to know whether your land is registered or not, please get in touch and we can find out quickly and easily for you.

Whether you are buying or selling farmland, granting or taking an agricultural tenancy we would be pleased to hear from you.

The members of the property department are all based locally with a wealth of personal knowledge of both the area and the local community.

Give us a call and we will be happy to assist with any query you may have.
