We have guided hundreds of clients through successful lease assignments, ensuring smooth transitions and maximum protection of your interests.

KWW will look to secure the best terms for you, from rent adjustments to assignment fees. We will be by your side, from initial consultations to final document signings, helping to surmount challenges and keeping you informed in plain English.

Assigning your lease involves navigating a tangled web of legalities, including:

  • Landlord consent: We will be looking to secure their approval with compelling arguments and thorough preparation.
  • Lease terms and conditions: We will get familiar with your obligations and liabilities, negotiating favourable amendments if needed.
  • Financial considerations: We can help you renegotiate rent, manage deposits and ensure a smooth financial handover.
  • Tax implications: We will flag up potential tax liabilities associated with the assignment, although you will need to engage an authorised tax specialist for formal guidance.

Once you have found the perfect tenant for your space, we will draft and review legal documents, ensuring everything is watertight and liaising with all parties involved – landlords, assignees, brokers and other stakeholders.

It’s your right under UK law to purchase the freehold of your commercial property from the landlord. This empowers you to:

  • Make decisions about your property, from renovations and extensions to setting service charges and managing the building.
  • Eliminate ground rent and potentially reduce service charges, increasing your long-term profitability.
  • Enhance property value: Freeholds typically command higher market prices, making your investment even more valuable.

KWW will secure the best possible price for the freehold, protecting your financial interests, and we will provide accurate assessments of your property’s value and the enfranchisement costs involved.

Freehold enfranchisement is a complex legal process. Choose KWW as your trusted guide and unlock the full potential of your commercial property.

Understanding and navigating complex loan agreements is crucial for securing the best deal and protecting your investment. KWW can guide you through every step of the loan agreement process.

We will start with a thorough review of your loan agreement, identifying potential risks associated with the loan and property ready for any negotiation.

As skilled negotiators, we will ensure your interests are protected and you secure the most favourable terms possible.

We communicate effectively with lenders, surveyors and other stakeholders, ensuring a smooth and efficient transaction.

We guide you through the closing process and provide ongoing support as needed.

Entering into a personal guarantee means putting your personal assets on the line for another party’s loan or debt.

Adverse possession is a legal principle that allows someone who occupies another person’s land without their permission to acquire ownership of that land after a certain period of time.

This can happen in various situations, like squatters occupying vacant commercial buildings, neighbouring businesses encroaching on your property line, or long-term leaseholders refusing to vacate after the lease expires.

Our team has a proven track record of success in:

  • Assessing the strength of your case: We’ll meticulously analyse the situation and advise you on the best course of action.
  • Gathering evidence: We’ll collect and present compelling evidence to support your claim, including Land Registry records, witness statements, and surveying reports.
  • Negotiating with trespassers: We can often reach favourable settlements without the need for costly litigation.

Adverse possession claims can be intricate and time-sensitive. The sooner you seek legal counsel, the better your chances of success.

Salvatore ‘Salv’ Sole

Partner/ Head of Commercial Property

Salv is a partner at KWW and head of the firm’s highly successful Commercial Property department, expertly handling acquisitions and disposals, leases and assignments and a raft of related specialisms for the benefit of business owners, landlords and investors.

Salv has been with KWW for more than 20 years during which time he has become the go-to solicitor in our locality for a number of property professionals.

He is known for his straightforward, practical and commercial approach and is trusted to deliver outstanding service at a fair price and without undue delay.

With his Sicilian heritage, it comes as no surprise that there’s always a very pleasing aroma of espresso in his office, and Salv’s eye for style was put to good use in the design of the firm’s website.

Like David, Salv is big on sport and enjoys his football especially. He was a decent striker in his heyday and still turns out for the occasional charity match and five-a-side. His loyalties are split between Chelsea and Juventus.
