Buying and selling commercial property
A business which owns the freehold in its premises can count that as another of its assets. Whether or not it is a sound investment can depend on the care taken during the buying or selling process.
Freehold ownership gives a degree of autonomy rarely found in leasehold arrangements. Owners can make, or apply to make, changes to the property. They can occupy it for as long as they like and even choose to become landlords and generate rental income.
While the benefits are significant, there’s no escaping the financial outlay involved in buying a freehold. For that reason, it’s crucial that the process of identifying the property and making sure it does everything a business needs now – and may need in the future – is thorough.
