Commercial property can often form the natural progression for residential property investors or can just attract property investors for many reasons, conversions, change of use, split developments the opportunities are endless.
So it gives us great pleasure at the Bucks to have a commercial property solicitor who is willing to share his experience so you can consider this sector of the property market – especially whilst prices are artificially low.
Many experienced residential property investors are tempted to acquire commercial property, either through private sales or at auction.
Commercial property can offer an excellent investment both for capital gain and income, however there are legal issues affecting commercial units that can soon wipe out your profits.
If you have ever been tempted by a commercial acquisition or would simply like to know a little more about what goes into acquiring non-residential investments come along.
