We are not only able to commission environmental searches on your behalf, but can review these and relay any potential areas of concern to you, and work with you to establish the best steps to take to move matters forward. We are here to provide guidance where necessary, particularly if the search shows the land as being potentially contaminated land.

Whether you have concerns regarding environmental issues/contaminated land on a new property or on a property which you already own, we are here to help.

Rent Reviews

Licences for Alteration


Subletting, or underletting as it is often referred to, can be an effective way of managing your tenancy issues. An existing tenant of a commercial property should always consider whether it is best for them to sublet the property rather than assign (that is transfer) the lease to a third party.

If you desire to sublet the property to a third party, we are more than happy to help. We would review your existing lease to first establish that subletting is permitted (which isn’t always the case!). Provided that it is, we will assist your with preparing/negotiating the licence to sublet with your landlord, negotiating the drafting of the sublease with your tenant, and any ancillary documents such as rent deposit deeds as may be required. If you require any assistance with any aspect of sub-letting, we are your team.
