COMMERCIAL CONVEYANCING

Commercial conveyancing requires a range of legal skills and experience. The usual legal issues associated with the sale and purchase of land apply, but trust law, landlord/tenant law and tax law are all relevant. Questions to be addressed often relate to GST. For example, does the margin scheme apply? Is the sale of these premises a going concern? What if the premises is occupied by a licensee and not a lessee – is that still a going concern? Whilst  I will not give you specific advice about your tax position, I will ensure that any time I act for a vendor or a purchaser in a commercial transaction their accountant  is involved and that his or her advice is incorporated into the transaction. Pricing for commercial conveyancing reflects the greater legal knowledge and experience required to protect your interests.
