Equally, we provide exactly the same high-quality advisory service to people who own – or wish to own – an agricultural property. As with commercial property, agricultural property is a very wide term that includes farmland, forestry, waterways and land that is devoted to horticulture, for example. Equally, commercial property can include land that is designated for mixed-use purposes.

At Redkite Solicitors, we can guide you through the sometimes bewildering regulations that impact on how such land can be used, inherited and developed, among other things. In short, we are the perfect legal firm to turn to for all of your commercial and agricultural property requirements.

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.

Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. 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.

Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.

I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.

How can our commercial property solicitors help you?

Our dedicated team of commercial property specialists will guide you on the following services:

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

Leases

Our experts can be trusted to deliver in many different areas; complex lease negotiations, lease drafting, lease assignments, lease surrenders and disputes over leases. We give great attention to detail and will ensure that you thoroughly understand the risks and potential liabilities that may be involved. A clearly drafted lease allows both the landlord and the tenant to develop a good working relationship.

Attention to Detail

Attention to detail is important as is the need to make sure that you have a clear view of the risks and potential risks associated. A clearly written contract would allow both landlord and occupant to develop a good professional relationship. To accomplish that aim it is worth investing time and resources at the outset

Our lease services include:

  • Complex lease negotiations
  • Lease drafting
  • Lease assignments
  • Lease surrenders
  • Disputes over leases

Developments

All of our clients gain from a property team that can counsel on a wide variety of issues;  existing property developers and landowners to large ownership of land properties and public bodies.

With a thorough understanding of the commercial environment that impacts land acquisitions, we routinely help developers make educated and strategic decisions that aim to improve productivity and investor returns.

Our development advice covers every aspect of this area of the 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
  • Licensing

Planning

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

If you’re unsure as to whether the local planning authority wants planning approval or takes disciplinary action, we will help. We have established high-level Town and Country Planning experience that is unparalleled in Wales.

Challenging Planning Authority Decisions

We will help you contest decisions made by the local planning authority by working with local planning experts (and specialist planning solicitors if required).

If you are a developer then you will now be expected to negotiate a planning agreement with the local planning authority (often known as section 106 agreements).  You will need our guidance to ensure that you are realistic about the provisions of those agreements.

We can help you with every facet of planning including:

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

Agricultural Land

Currently, the agricultural sector is highly regulated. For this reason, anybody operating a farming business would profit from our professional experience, leading them through the legal maze which can be nothing short of an inexperienced individual’s nightmare.

Don’t Commit Before Taking Specialist Advice

If you are a landlord or investor, the law covering both tenancies for agricultural properties and new tenancies for farm businesses is complicated and technical.  Until receiving advice from our team do not commit yourself to anything.

Our business awareness also ensures we will assist you with the purchase or sale of your property. We have long term experience and will assist you with a vast 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 FAQ

Who is responsible for repairing and maintaining commercial property?

A

When leasing commercial property, there will be certain obligations both for the owner and the tenant. For example, routine health and safety inspections, i.e. on gas and electrical equipment, are necessary for the business owner to ensure the premises are secure from which to work. Many commercial tenants would assign responsibility to their tenant to keep the property kept to a reasonable standard in terms of maintenance and repairs while promising to manage any structural changes required. Nonetheless, that may not always be the case and the particular commercial lease conditions will clarify who is liable for the property's maintenance and repairs. This is something which should always be discussed with the landlord before committing to a commercial contract.

Can I appeal against decisions on planning permission?

A

If your application for planning has been rejected you will still have the option to challenge the ruling. However, it is a good idea to contact the local planning authority before filing an appeal and figure out which element of your proposal warranted the rejection and whether or not certain sections could be changed to obtain planning permission. We also suggest that you receive professional legal advice from a member of our team to support you in appealing the decision, as we will be able to assess your situation and assist you in redrafting the application. Working with local planning consultants (and specialist planning consultants if required) we will help contest the rulings made by the local planning authority and discuss the conditions of a consent arrangement after it has been approved.
