• Conveyancing or Solicitor Fees & Disbursements: These cover professional advice provided by property lawyers, licensed conveyancers or solicitors while also covering legal documents such as lease agreements and land registry searches – both essential elements when dealing with commercial property transactions.

• Surveyor Costs: Having your new commercial premises inspected by a qualified surveyor ensures there aren't any hidden problems lurking beneath the surface - whether structural issues or even compliance violations which might cause problems down the line! This cost should not be overlooked.

Common Types Of Commercial Conveyancing Transactions
Commercial property conveyancing can involve a variety of different transactions. From the sale and purchase of land to leaseholds, mortgages and more – there’s plenty for buyers and sellers alike to consider. Let’s take a look at some common types of commercial conveyancing transactions in closer detail:

Sale & Purchase Transactions:

These are among the most frequent types of transaction that occur. The seller will usually be responsible for presenting all relevant documentation such as title deeds and contracts, while an experienced solicitor or licensed conveyancer should assist with any other legal requirements. At RG Law, we have extensive experience in this area and can help make sure everything is completed correctly from start to finish.

Leasehold Transactions:

Leases allow individuals or companies to occupy a property without actually owning it outright. This type of arrangement typically involves paying rent on the premises over an agreed length of time; many retailers and business owners choose this option as it saves them money in the long run. In order to ensure both parties understand their rights and responsibilities, it’s essential that all details relating to the lease are clearly outlined before signing off on anything. Our team can provide sound advice here too.

Mortgage Transactions:

It’s not uncommon for businesses looking to buy a commercial property to require funding via a mortgage loan - either through banks or private lenders. If you need assistance finding the right lender or negotiating terms then RG Law can provide invaluable guidance throughout proceedings.


We also use our expertise when dealing with remortgages, so whatever your situation may be – our dedicated staff will always go above and beyond!

What Is The Difference Between Freehold And Leasehold Commercial Property?

When it comes to purchasing or selling commercial property, there’s an important distinction between freehold and leasehold. In a nutshell, the former refers to buying a building or land outright whereas the latter involves occupying the premises for an agreed period of time, usually in exchange for rent payments. Understanding which option is best for you depends on your individual circumstances – but either way, our team are here to help provide advice every step of the way.

Signing a Contract

So what else do buyers of commercial properties need to know? Well, depending on whether you opt for freehold or leasehold, additional costs may come into play such as Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) and legal fees; these will all vary from case-to-case so it pays to be aware of any potential outlays before committing.


Ultimately though, with RG Law on hand throughout proceedings - we can make sure that everything goes according to plan and ensure no nasty surprises along the way!

As such, when deciding whether to purchase a commercial property via freehold or leasehold - having access to experienced lawyers who understand both options inside out can prove invaluable. With years of experience under our belt dealing with different types of transactions, we’re well placed to assist you through every aspect of this process too. So if you have any questions about your particular situation then please don't hesitate to get in touch - one of our friendly experts would be more than happy to answer them!

After all, they will be responsible for ensuring that you comply with all the relevant laws and regulations while providing invaluable advice throughout your purchase journey.

For this reason, finding an experienced local professional is essential – not only can they provide more tailored guidance, but they’ll also be better acquainted with any specific rules and conditions in your area.

Is There Stamp Duty On A Commercial Property Transaction?

When it comes to commercial property transactions, Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a key factor. This tax must be paid on any transaction where the consideration - i.e. purchase price - is greater than £150,000 in England and Northern Ireland or more than £150,000 in Wales.

It’s important to note that SDLT rates vary depending on whether you're buying a freehold property or taking out an existing lease – so it's imperative to get professional advice throughout the process. Here are some of the main things you should bear in mind:

• Rates differ between residential and non-residential properties;

• You may have to pay additional 3% surcharge if you're purchasing additional properties;

• If you use multiple financing sources then each one needs to be considered separately when calculating your SDLT liabilities.

At RG Law we can provide all the help needed for this complex matter – from advising on initial liability calculations through to preparing returns and making payments. Our team will make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible, allowing you to complete your purchase with confidence.
