Property issues when buying or selling a business

At Actons we'll ensure that the property aspects of any business transaction including MBOs, MBIs and other types of business deal complete without any last minute property hitches.

Virtually all businesses of whatever type and size will have interests in land and buildings.

Due diligence needs to be carried out by a buyer and its advisers on those interests when the transaction is the sale and purchase of shares or assets.

When selling shares in or the assets of a business, the property interests should be properly documented and protected at the earliest opportunity.  This will avoid any last minute surprises which could lead to delay and additional costs.

We can help with:

  • Investigation of title and other pre contract due-diligence searches
  • Property warranties and property specific contracts
  • Disclosure and deduction of title
  • Audit of a vendor’s property affairs and resolving potential issues pre-contract
  • Property specific funding arrangements including discharge of existing mortgages.
