What Is Commercial Conveyancing?
Commercial conveyancing is the transfer of the legal title of commercial property from one person or party to another. There are normally two stages to this: the first is the exchange of contracts – the point at which the terms of sale are agreed. The second is the completion – the point at which the legal title is transferred from one party to another.
There are different types of commercial properties. These can include an office building or block, retail shop or a warehouse. Buildings that house industrial operations, including those for heavy manufacturing, flexible industrial (buildings with a blend of industrial space (s) and office space and light assembly buildings are also classed as commercial buildings.
In addition, commercial buildings also include those that house multiple units, such as multi-family apartment blocks are also classified as commercial buildings.

Is VAT Charged on Property Rental Payments?
It depends on the individual property. Should a landlord have ‘opted tax’ for VAT purposes, rental payments will be subject to VAT, otherwise, rental payments are exempt from VAT. If your business is VAT registered, your costs will normally be higher, whether the landlord has opted tax or not. You can reclaim any VAT you pay, in the same way as you do for other business purchases.
However, if your business is not VAT-registered, or if you make VAT-exempt supplies, any VAT charged on rental payments will increase your costs.
Is It a Legal Requirement to Have an EPC?
If you are selling, renting or building commercial property, you need to have a commercial EPC. Should the building be split into sections with separate accommodate, for instance in an apartment block, each section or unit will require an EPC.
Is My Property Leasehold or Freehold?
Leasehold ownership simple refers to a lengthy tenancy (the right to own, occupy and use the property for a prolonged period.) This is known as the terms of the lease. Terms can range from a few years to 999 and within that period units (for instance, apartments within a building) can be bought and sold.
Freehold ownership means that the property owner has unequivocal ownership of the land and all the buildings on it. Freehold property owners are subject to fewer development restrictions, providing that they comply with planning guidelines and restrictions.
