Frequently Asked Questions
Buying a property is a complex procedure. It isn’t compulsory to instruct a lawyer but they will explain the process, clarify legal documentation and ensure that you fully understand your obligations before purchasing.
A freehold is when you own the property, the land it sits on and the space above it. It is the most common type of property ownership. A leasehold means that you own the property but not the land upon which it is built. This will restrict the sorts of changes you can make to the property.
The initial stages of residential and commercial property conveyancing are broadly the same. However, the process then differs considerably and it is crucial to seek professional advice in order to avoid any mistakes. Some of the most obvious differences between the two processes are:
- The type of property being purchased/leased.
- Is the property freehold or leasehold?
- Goodwill payments – these are not uncommon on completion of a commercial property purchase.
- The cost of searches are considerably higher for commercial properties.
The Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 provides tenants of business premises with the rights of ‘security of tenure’. This is basically the automatic option of being able to remain in occupation of the commercial property on expiry of the lease, under the same terms as the previous lease.
Commercial Property Standard Enquiries (CPSEs) are a set of standard pre-contract enquiries about a property. The responses to these enquiries are provided to a prospective purchaser/leaser. They are an additional way to find out information about a property but should not be used instead of a personal property inspection.
