Commercial Property Finance Solicitors

Gaining access to and securing property finance is often crucial in commercial property transactions, and there are a number of finance options out there to chose from.

Whether for acquisition finance, development finance and/or exit finance, your lender will require security over the site. They will also check that everything’s in order, such as title, planning, regulatory compliance, before agreeing to advance the money.

That’s not a straightforward process. However, our experienced commercial property solicitors can help you to anticipate what your lender may require.

Our property finance expertise

Our lawyers are experts in this area, meaning we can deal with your property finance transaction as efficiently as possible. We will work with you to understand your expectations and needs, and help you to achieve a result that is financially secure and which protects your interests.

Our team can advise you on:

  • acquisition and/or development finance
  • refinancing
  • personal guarantees

Our expert team are on the panel of numerous commercial lenders for the above, and so we are likely to be able to act for your proposed lender. This includes acting on behalf of you and the lender in the transaction, if the lender is agreeable.

If our commercial property team have already been helping you with the development, it puts us in an excellent position to handle the refinance, as we have the bulk of the information and documents on file already.

Personal guarantees

Lenders often require a developer’s directors to give personal guarantees to back up the security over the land. The lenders require that an independent lawyer certifies that the director has been advised on the guarantee. Our property finance solicitors can advise directors and give these certificates.
