What is Com­mer­cial Conveyancing?

Commercial Conveyancing is the term used to describe all the legal work involved in transferring ownership of land or property. Our conveyancing lawyers can also offer support when it comes to negotiating, reviewing or drafting lease agreements.

Often a more complicated process, our property conveyancers understand the complexities of commercial requirements. By hir­ing a pro­fes­sion­al you can expect bespoke assis­tance when it comes to deal­ing with lease agree­ments or plan­ning per­mis­sions, allow­ing the exchange of prop­er­ty to con­tin­ue smoothly.

How long does a commercial property purchase take?

Purchasing a commercial property is a lengthy process which can take several weeks to complete - there are no quick fixes. It is important to correctly follow all of the required legal processes.

As with any property purchase, there can be a number of reasons that contribute to the time a purchase takes. To give you peace of mind, our expert conveyancers will keep you informed at every necessary stage of the process.

Do I need a solicitor to buy a commercial property?

A commercial property purchase can be a complex and lengthy process and it’s important to complete the necessary due diligence. It’s also a big investment and so buyers need to ensure that the process is as risk-free as possible.

A property conveyancer can help you understand what the process is for buying a commercial property. Employ­ing a spe­cial­ist in this sec­tor will ensure you’re paying a reasonable price for the new office your busi­ness needs - and getting good value for money throughout the process!

What our clients have to say...

Kept us well informed at every stage

JBGass took the stress out of the leasing process. They kept us well informed at every stage and progressed matters quickly and with great satisfaction.

Ensuring we left our previous space in a suitable & timely manner was essential. The suitability & timing of their advice allowed this to occur & we are very glad we made the move, something which is always daunting.


JBGass took the stress out of the buying process. They liaised with all parties throughout & were proactive in helping us secure the building which is key to our expansion.

They also helped us with the leasing of the land at the rear which secured extra revenue for the business.

Fantastic to deal with

JBGass were fantastic to deal with and they gave us peace of mind that everything was taken care of.

Having also worked with JBGass on a personal level, I knew the business was in safe hands.
