Case Study: Heaton Hops

A Commercial Conveyancing case study for a start-up tap house and bottle shop, Heaton Hops

Case Study: Heaton Hops
Rick Barrow - Marketing Director, JB & Gass

Introduction - A word from Rick

During the purchase or leasing of commercial property, the process highlights the importance of hiring a specialist Solicitor as the process is more complex than other areas of Conveyancing. By hiring a professional, you can expect bespoke assistance when it comes to dealing with paperwork, allowing the acquisition to continue smoothly.

Why Jackson Barrett and Gass?

We have the expertise to handle the whole commercial process, including drafting any associated legal documents. As an established law firm, we understand the concerns you may have when it comes to a start-up business, which is why we offer professional advice so you can be confident with the process. We also understand the practicalities of starting a business and that access to the property is paramount

Who are Heaton Hops?

Heaton Hops is an award-winning tap house and bottle shop based in Heaton Chapel, Stockport. They specialise in key and cask ales, real ciders and fine wines. They came to JB & Gass due to needing help with occupation of premises within a defined timescale.

Their case was successful and Heaton Hops were so pleased that they’re already planning on using them again.

After hearing that JB & Gass provided a great service, and due to their nearby office location, I searched for them on Google and was instantly impressed with their website.

Our first call went extremely well, not only because they seemed interested in helping me and understood the problems I faced but they gave me the confidence to trust them as they know how to handle my specific situation.

Meetings progressed via email as that is my preference but it was comforting to know they were within commutable distance if I needed to visit them. Items were always explained in greater detail if I ever asked and they sent me a detailed written report with documents I needed to see, ensuring I never missed anything.

That’s a great benefit of theirs, as they seem genuinely interested in concerns and requirements, and go above and beyond to meet them.

In terms of start-ups, their pricing is not only competitive, but they also understand the challenges start-ups face, which I believe is the most important point. I am already planning on working with them again and I’ve recommended them to others countless times. JB & Gass were excellent form start to finish and there was honestly no way in which they could have improved. They are without a doubt property specialists.
