  • Acting for local, regional and national developers on the acquisition, development and disposal of residential and commercial development sites
  • Advising on landlord and tenant matters including new leases, lease renewals and lease management documents– we represent both landlords and tenants on leases of all sizes
  • Dealing with secured lending and concluding the security requirements of funders in connection with freehold and leasehold property
  • Options, conditional contracts and pre-emption rights
  • Acquisitions and dispositions of licensed premises and dealing with ancillary licence applications
  • Acquisitions and disposals of care homes for a number of operators in the sector
  • Acting for SIPP and SSAS pension fund trustees on the acquisition, disposal and management of commercial properties.

Throughout the legal process we shared with Hay and Kilner we found the staff we dealt with to be friendly, helpful and very professional. They understood our position and what we needed to achieve. We received regular updates and they explained each process thoroughly and in easy terms we could understand.


They are an excellent team because they are prompt and accurate, and they can provide an answer to any legal question I have. They provide outstanding services.
