Retail | Commercial Real Estate Solicitors | Aberdein Considine Legal

We know from experience that timing in retail is everything


We know from experience that timing in retail is everything. Whether new deals or refits, we work hard to ensure stores are handed over to fit-out contractors and then opened on time.

Preparation and forward planning is the key.

Therefore, we assist clients and your agents at draft heads of terms stage to pre-empt the sort of problems that can arise once negotiation of contracts begin.

We visit each and every unit at an early stage to better understand the unique characteristics of each high street site, shopping centre or retail development.

At an early stage we determine any planning and title issues and address these with the relevant parties.

We ask all of the important questions at an early stage to ensure there are no delays, and we drive deals forward to completion. Thereafter we are with you throughout the entire length of the lease to advise, interpret and to help ease communication between landlord and tenant
