What our clients say

I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.

Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).

The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.

Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.

How can Our Commercial Property Solicitors Help You?

Our expert team of Legal Property specialists can guide on the following:

  • Leases: negotiating and drafting
  • Developments
  • Planning
  • Agricultural Land


Our trustworthy experts can provide services in various areas, such as complicated lease negotiations, a draft of a lease, lease assignments, lease surrenders and disputes over leases. We will ensure that you are fully aware of the risks and potential liabilities that you may come across. A drafted lease enables parties to be involved in a good working relationship.

Attention to Detail

It is important to have great attention to detail as this is needed to ensure that you have a clear view of any associated risks. A written contract allows the parties involved to have a good professional relationship and to achieve that goal, it is worth investing time and resources at the start.

Our leases include:

  • Complex lease negotiation
  • Lease drafting
  • Least assignments
  • Lease surrenders
  • Disputes over leases


All of our clients gain from a Cardiff-based commercial solicitor that can advise on various issues, ranging from existing property developers and landowners to large ownership of land properties and public bodies.

With an in-depth knowledge of the commercial environment that affects land acquisitions, we regularly help developers form educated and strategic decisions to improve productivity and investor returns.

Our development advice covers every aspect of this area of law:
  • Purchase, acquisition and disposal of land for commercial use
  • Sale and lease of commercial property developments
  • Investment advice and property finance
  • Planning permission
  • Portfolio management
  • Licencing


Few legal firms have the level of understanding, successful track record and capacity to deal with all of the issues relating to modern planning.

If you are not certain whether the Local Planning Authority requires planning approval or is taking disciplinary action, we are here to help. We have established an advanced Town and Country Planning experience that is incomparable in Wales.

Challenging Planning Authority Decisions

We can help you challenge the decisions made by the Local Planning Authority by collaborating with local planning experts and if needed, we will work with specialist planning solicitors.

Developers are expected to negotiate a planning agreement with the Local Planning Authority (also known as Section 106 Agreements). Our guidance will help ensure that the provisions of the agreements are representative.

We offer help in every facet of planning including:

  • Planning Authority negotiations
  • Agreement and project negotiations, e.g. highway agreements and energy projects
  • Compulsory purchase acquisitions
  • Judicial Review Proceedings
  • Advice on listed buildings
  • Enforcement action advice


Agricultural Land

At present, the agricultural sector is highly regulated. Because of this, anybody operating a farming business would benefit from our professional experience, guiding them through all of the relevant agricultural legal matters.

Don’t Commit Before Taking Specialist Advice

If you are a landlord or an investor, the law covering both tenancies for agricultural properties and new tenancies for farm business is complex and technical. Until getting advice from our professional team, avoid committing yourself to anything.

Our business expertise allows us to assist you with the purchase or sale of your property. We understand the difficulties you may come across when dealing with a large array of related matters.

Our expertise in the agricultural industry covers:
  • Agricultural Holdings Tenancies
  • Farm Business Tenancies
  • Sale and purchase of farms and agricultural land
  • Equine law
  • Single Payment Scheme
  • Milk Quota
  • Environmental law

Commercial Property FAQs

Who is responsible for repairing and maintaining commercial property?


When leasing a property, there are certain responsibilities for both the owner and the tenant. For example, routine health and safety checks, i.e. on gas and electrical equipment, are needed for the business owner to ensure the security of the premises from which to work. Many commercial owners would assign responsibilities to their tenant to maintain the property to a certain standard while assuring to manage any required structural changes. However, that may not always be the case. The commercial lease conditions will specify who is liable for the property’s maintenance and repairs. To have a better understanding, this should always be discussed with the landlord before committing to a commercial contract.

Can I appeal against decisions on planning permission?


If your application for planning has been declined, you have the option to contest the ruling. On the other hand, it is ideal to get in touch with the Local Planning Authority before filing an appeal and determine which elements of the proposal caused the rejection and whether or not particular sections could be changes to get planning permission. We also recommend that you receive professional legal advice from a member of our team to assist you in appealing the decision. This allows us to assess the situation you are in and help you in redrafting the application. Working with Local Planning Consultants (and Specialist Planning Consultants if needed), we will help challenge the rulings of the Local Planning Authority and discuss the conditions of a consent arrangement after its approval.
