Buying, selling or leasing commercial property is a significant investment, often involving years of financial outlay.

For many of our clients, a commercial property is the base from which they operate. For others, it is their stock in trade. In today’s competitive and fast-paced business environment, it is sometimes easy to overlook potential pitfalls and underestimate the commitment you are undertaking just to get the sale, purchase or lease secured. If there are drawbacks to your property transaction or issues with your lease, you can trust Attwaters Jameson Hill to identify them and provide you with options and solutions.

With this in mind, our commercial property team makes a promise to our clients that we call our Service Pledge. We pledge that our clients will always know where their matter is up to, to be responsive and proactive in progressing our clients’ matters and to ensure that any problem we identify will be accompanied by a solution.

Why we do what we do

Our vision is to inspire and assist individuals and businesses, both locally and regionally, to take on and dispose of properties to advance their own vision, aims and aspirations. We offer creative, practical and commercially-minded advice – it is why our clients come to us and stay with us. We are a team with skilled and dedicated solicitors and paralegals, who all carry out their role to the highest standards; however, your case will always be led and dealt with by a qualified solicitor.

Our Commercial Property team is highly passionate about the work we do. We take pride in the role we play in helping our fellow local businesses to realise their vision, aims and aspirations. To help us achieve the best outcomes for our clients, we work closely together and pool our collective knowledge and resources to ensure our clients receive the highest standard of service. By working collectively, instead of as individuals, we ensure that any member of our team is ready to step in and continue progressing your case should your own solicitor be absent for any reason.

Helping you make the legal decisions that make the best commercial sense for your business

Our job is to understand what is important to you and fully explain all of your options, so that you can make commercial decisions you are happy with. We work for:

  • Property owners
  • Developers
  • Business tenants
  • Investors

Our Commercial Property team has considerable experience in helping businesses of all sizes to successfully complete a wide range of commercial transactions. Decades spent with a strong presence within the local communities we serve means we have a deep and genuine understanding of the local market, enabling us to use this local knowledge to effectively advise on options and solutions to any obstacles or adverse title issues.

We strive to build strong relationships to advance our clients’ businesses and be a trusted first point of call if our clients need advice or commercial solutions. We listen to our clients and use our commercial expertise to advise on risks, explain issues and provide practical solutions to ensure that our clients are able to make the commercial decisions that best serve their business needs.

We have offices in Hertford, Ware and Loughton and can also meet with clients in Harlow and London (by appointment only), and we serve clients from across the whole region.

What we do

We focus on what you want and then work out the best way to achieve it. In commercial matters, the best solutions are often reached in conjunction with solicitors from other parts of the firm with expertise in matters such as litigationplanning law and company law. We advise on:

  • Property for your business – Including advice on buying and selling commercial buildings, leasing, assigning and underletting commercial premises, whether as a landlord or tenant
  • Investment property– We act for investors in residential and commercial property, including investment in buy-to-let, retail, office and industrial premises
  • Development property– We advise commercial property developers, funders and occupiers on all types of development projects in a range of commercial sectors
