We specialise in both commercial and domestic Property in its varying forms.
The firm has always maintained a substantial property base and the work undertaken in the department encompasses all aspects of commercial property investment and development with the principal areas of activity in respect of commercial property being sales and purchases; leases and lease backs; building and development schemes; residential property portfolios and management companies.
In addition to commercial property work both Edmund Grower and Stuart Pearson have been involved over a long period of time in the various aspects of residential conveyancing. Their experience includes mansion block break-ups; the sales and purchases of residential developments; the purchase and sales of long leasehold flats; leasehold extensions and the acquisitions of freeholds under the Leasehold Reform and Urban Development Act 1993; in addition they have been involved in the sales and purchases of ground rent portfolios and high value freehold properties.
Together with Edmund Grower and Stuart Pearson, Ashi Patel has brought new zest and enthusiasm to the department and provides support in all those areas to which we have referred above. The department further benefits from the back up of Adam King on Landlord and Tenant matters.
In all transactions regardless of value we endeavour to deliver an efficient, fast and cost effective service supported by the up-to-date technology which we have in the office in order to ensure that all parties involved are kept fully informed. It is our aim to ensure that constant communication is maintained in order to avoid any unnecessary misunderstandings or delays.
