New Lease

Platform81 agreed the Heads of Terms of their new office directly with the agent, Breakey Nuttall. The Heads of Terms were then sent to all parties; Platform81& Co, their Solicitor at Jackson Barrett & Gass and finally, the Landlord’s legal team. 

The legal documentation was forwarded to Jackson Barrett & Gass to check and approve. The process was made slightly more complicated with the Landlord being a Pension Company & the previous tenants wishing to leave before the end of their Lease Term. Due to this, a new Lease was granted to Platform 81 for the remaining term rather than assigning the previous Lease.

Jackson Barrett & Gass performed their usual duties, including but not limited to:

  • Checking the Freehold title
  • Submitting searches requested by the client
  • Checking the standard Commercial Property Standard Enquiries (CPSEs)
  • Raising further enquiries on all of the above
  • Preparing a formal report with references to specific clauses and enquiries
  • Ensuring the future redecoration cost be proportioned
  • Advising on specific clauses e.g. signage
  • Negotiating with the Landlord’s Solicitor for an option to buy

True professionals

I would recommend JBG for anyone looking to buy or sell a property. Not only do I believe that their professionalism, industry knowledge and value for money puts them in the top bracket, but equally as important is their genuine empathy and understanding of the experiences that a buyer goes through up to the point of completion.

We're in safe hands

Jackson, Barrett & Gass were fantastic to deal with and they gave us peace of mind that everything was taken care off. Having also worked with Jackson Barrett and Gass on a personal level, I knew the business was in safe hands.
