Commercial & Agricultural Property


Job Description

Are you looking for a mixed range of commercial property work and are you solutions focused?

Due to continued expansion we are now seeking driven commercial property solicitors. We will consider all levels of PQE with experience of the following areas (experience in agricultural property work would be an advantage, but not essential):

  • Landlord and tenant cases
  • Purchase and sale of agricultural, commercial or residential development land/properties and premises sold with vacant possession/subject to tenancies
  • Conditional contracts, option agreements and overage
  • Mortgage and legal charge documentation and lenders' instructions for drawdown of funds required for commercial, development and agricultural land transactions
  • Transfer of equity and partnership commercial/agricultural property transactions
  • Joint ventures and promotion agreements

We are actively recruiting in our Oswestry, Telford, Ludlow and Hereford offices but with offices across rural Shropshire, Herefordshire and into North Wales you can enjoy a better work-life balance with open roads and countryside on your doorstep. We can offer a very competitive salary for the right person and a range of benefits including private healthcare scheme, life insurance and flexible working opportunities (we can accommodate part time working and offer flexible working opportunities). 

We genuinely believe that a happy team, where staff enjoy working, means our clients get a better service from cheerful, motivated staff. We pride ourselves on combining professional excellence with a family atmosphere, which is the envy of many other law firms. With a dynamic and modern character we are focused on success and growth. This generates room for our staff to develop and grow and enjoy stimulating and rewarding careers.   

We are recognised and have been recommended in 14 categories in the 2019 edition of The Legal 500. The teams acknowledged are: company & commercial, commercial litigation, contentious trusts & probate, debt recovery, education, employment, clinical negligence, personal injury, planning, agriculture & estates, family, criminal law, trusts & probate and commercial property. The clinical negligence and agricultural teams are recognised in tier one for the West Midlands.

The 2019 edition of Chambers UK ranks the agriculture & rural affairs, crime, clinical negligence, family and personal injury teams in band one. The private client team is ranked in band two in their High Net Worth guide. Also acknowledged are the employment, litigation & real estate teams, plus the corporate team in band four for their work on mergers and acquisitions within the SME/owner-managed businesses category.
