Commercial Conveyancing for Purchasers

If you are in the market for a commercial property, it pays to have an experienced conveyancer on hand to help and assist you with all your pre-purchase conveyancing needs and advice.

When buying commercial property, the legal term caveat emptor comes to mind.

That’s legal jargon for buyer beware.

And when it comes to commercial property, there are a lot of factors to consider.

What sort of businesses can the property house?

Is the purchase subject to a lease? What are the terms of that lease?

How will the way you structure the purchase mean for you from a tax perspective?

Seeking advice before you put pen to paper or even submit an offer is crucial to ensuring you understand the contract you could be about to enter into and the property you are potentially purchasing.

Tick Box Conveyancing offers a sophisticated understanding of GST, leases and much more, meaning we can provide in-depth – but easy to understand – guidance and advice to commercial property purchasers, whether you are buying your first or your 10th commercial property.

When purchasing commercial property, you want an experienced conveyancer who will help you understand:

  • Treatment of GST on the purchase
  • Any leases that are subject to your potential purchase
  • Whatever red flags that might exist

All of this – and more – is covered in Tick Box Conveyancing’s pre-purchase report.

Tick Box Conveyancing’s pre-purchase contract report will ensure all relevant searches are conducted and the contract of sale is thoroughly reviewed to give you a thorough, plain-English breakdown of the contract of sale for the property you are hoping to purchase.

Our report will shine a light on any special conditions in the contract and will tell you about any covenants or easements on the title and how they might affect what you can or can’t do with the property.

We will liaise with you, your accountants and other trusted advisers to ensure we understand your intentions for the property and the structure with which you intend to purchase to ensure our pre-purchase report includes guidance on tax and GST implications as well as whether or not the property is suitable for your end-goal intentions.

This is particularly important when purchasing commercial property because it is crucial to us that our clients understand any restrictions, covenants or encumbrances that may be prohibitive to their ability to use or change the property to fit their wishes.

Common things to look out for when purchasing commercial property include:

  • unfair special conditions and default clauses
  • restrictions on property use
  • finance conditions
  • settlement terms
  • vacant possession v subject to lease
  • outgoings including proportional land tax versus single holding land tax
  • special levies, orders, building permits, final approvals, and warranty insurance
  • measurements
  • owners’ corporation
  • title encumbrances, including restrictive covenants and easements (registered and unregistered)
  • zoning
  • works in surrounding areas
  • treatment of GST

In the process of negotiating for the property, Tick Box can represent you in seeking alterations to the proposed contract or any of the conditions contained within it.

 If you are successful in purchasing the property, Tick Box will ensure you are prepared for settlement with clear communication ahead of all the major milestones leading up to and including settlement day.

Commercial Conveyancing for Sellers (Vendors)

If you are selling a commercial property, there are a range of factors you want to be across.

At Tick Box Conveyancing assisting commercial clients with the sale of commercial property goes far beyond simply preparing a contract of sale and section 32 statement (aka Vendors Statement).

We can provide sophisticated assistance with regards to tax, including:

  • GST
  • Capital Gains Tax and
  • Land Tax

We work with your accountant and/or other professional advisers to ensure you completely understand the tax implications of your sale so there are no nasty surprises come settlement day.

Beyond that, we of course assist with the preparation of  high-quality contracts of sale.
