Commercial Property Solicitors

Welcome to the Commercial Property Department of Martin Tolhurst Solicitors.

We have a dedicated team of lawyers from various backgrounds but with a shared desire to provide high quality, focused and relevant advice to commercial property owners, investors and business owners.

Commercial properties take a number of forms, meaning no two transactions are the same and each client has different expectations and requirements. 

The wide range of experience amongst our team of commercial property lawyers enables us to provide advice relevant to your particular transaction. 

Get in touch with our commercial property solicitors in Kent

With local offices in Gravesend, Longfield, Ashford, Medway and Sittingbourne, we advise individuals and businesses from across Kent and the surrounding areas.

If you need advice about a commercial property matter, the first step is to call our New Enquiries team.  They will arrange for you to speak with one of our commercial property team about your requirements. 

We will not charge you for that initial conversation as the purpose is to get an idea of what you need and provide you with some initial guidance or options.

When you decide to instruct us you will be given a clear idea of the fees at the outset so you can plan and budget accordingly.  We know people do not like unpleasant surprises which is why you will never receive a bill from us that you were not expecting.

Our commercial property expertise

We have an excellent reputation for our commercial property work and have clients that have instructed us on hundreds of occasions as they know the quality of advice and service they received. We are always happy to hear from those dealing with commercial property for the first time, those that have dealt with commercial property before and those that do nothing but deal with commercial property!

Our expertise includes:

Agriculture and Rural Property

The landscape of the agricultural and rural industry is constantly evolving and changing, and with each new development, come new challenges for rural land owners and tenants. We have been providing services for matters involving agricultural and rural property for over 100 years and our specialist agricultural law solicitors have particular experience in this complex are of law.

Sales and purchases of agricultural land always need specialist advice to deal with unique matters such as the Single Farm Payment Scheme and environmental concerns. We also have significant experience dealing with family-related matters, such as trusts and lifetime planning for agricultural family businesses.

Our commercial conveyancing solicitors can advise on all aspects of buying and selling business premises. We have expertise across a wide range of industries and sectors and we approach all deals with a business mind set with the goal of helping clients maximise the value of their premises.

We enjoy close relationships with leading banks so can help you confidently navigate complex lending requirements and liaise effectively with your lender.

Buying Land for Development

Finding the right plot of land is an essential component of land and property development that cannot be overlooked. We have in-depth experience of the process of buying development land and the challenges you could be looking to overcome.

Our fully inclusive service includes examining the title to the property, checking there are no restrictions that could prevent or delay the development, advice on obtaining planning permission, and advice on associated agreements and contracts (such as option agreements and conditional contracts).

Investment and Buy to Let Properties

Investing in property can be a lucrative, if not slightly more involved, form of investment. We can help you explore options for investing in commercial property and assist with the legal aspects of purchasing the property.

Income from your investments will usually come from tenancies. As well as purchases and sales of investment and Buy to Let properties, we can also provide practical commercial landlord and tenant advice to help you maximise the value of your position as a landlord.

Whether you are a new start up, an established business looking for new premises, or you are looking to move your business on, we can provide advice about leasing business premises. We can also provide advice to owners of business premises about renting out your property.

We draft commercial tenancies in clear, thorough terms that fully set out the nature of the relationship between the business and the owner of the premises, minimising the risk of future disputes. We can provide advice about all aspects of leasing, including rent reviews, rent renewals, maintenance and dilapidations, break clauses, and otherwise ending commercial tenancies.

We focus on moving swiftly so you can fill your empty property or get your business up and running without missing out on potential rental income or incurring any unnecessary costs.
