Commercial Property Investment Solicitors


As the sole landlord across a portfolio of investment properties, or a commercial tenant seeking the next location for your business, you don't have to face the legal work without expert advice.

The Lanyon Bowdler property investment team work with developers, private investors and institutions to deliver the legal services required to build a professional real estate portfolio.

We can advise on every stage in the cycle and on any aspect of property investment, from commercial and residential developments through to housing association properties, industrial premises and office buildings.

Our expert commercial property lawyers work with landlords ranging from individual property lets, to large portfolios containing multiple-let properties.

Legal services are focused on your unique needs, with a plain English approach to the guidance we provide, so you always understand your legal position and what we can do to help you advance your property investments to the next stage.

Property Investment Legal Advice for Buyers

We act not only for developers, landlords and sellers, but we also provide property investment legal advice for buyers.

So whether you are a landlord or a tenant, a buyer or a seller, we can help you to understand and protect your legal position when investing in property.

For buyers, that means we can provide guidance on issues such as conveyancing, portfolio management if you are buying or already own multiple properties, as well as buy-to-let.

We can also advise on different methods of buying investment properties, from the traditional approach of buying through an estate agent, to alternatives such as private sales and buying at auction.

Property Investment Legal Services Where You Are

Investment properties are not always found in the same place. Instead, you might want to spread your portfolio over a large geographic area depending on where the best yields and capital gains can be found.

From our network of regional offices in The Marches and North Wales, we are able to provide property investment legal services for transactions taking place throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

This allows us to cater to landlords with portfolios that are not located in a specific geographical area, enabling you to capitalise on growth markets as they emerge in different towns and cities.

You benefit from a single source of legal advice for property investment transactions and developments, without limiting your ability to tap into profitable locations and capital gains wherever they can be found.

At all times our advice is tailored to you and your transaction, taking into account any issues of local significance like restrictive covenants, conservation areas and other planning restrictions within your chosen postcode district.

Property investment can be a lifelong career choice. Lanyon Bowdler are proud to support many investors throughout that career and throughout the organic growth of their portfolios.

Commercial Energy Performance Certificates

Commercial premises that have walls, a roof and some form of HVAC system must have a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

This provides accurate information about the energy efficiency of the building and ways this might be improved, and is mandatory for both selling and leasing commercial real estate.

When you need a commercial EPC, we can help by providing the necessary services without delay, to ensure that there is no hold-up to the sale or rental of your commercial property.

Armed Forces Covenant

Lanyon Bowdler are signatories of the Armed Forces Covenant, which makes us a clear first choice for serving and ex-military personnel in need of legal advice, including those relating to commercial property and general property investment.

If you are returning from active duty, have recently left the Armed Forces, or you left some time ago and are considering a future in property investment, we would be happy to help you decide what to do next as you build your real estate portfolio.
