Locate your ideal property

We’re sure that purchasing a commercial property will not be a knee-jerk decision, and that you will have been considering which building is best for you for a while. But the importance of weighing up your options cannot be understated. Be sure to spend plenty of time searching for the property that is perfect for you, in terms of price, location and logistics.

This gives you the confidence and peace of mind that you are going to continue the process with the intention of purchasing a property you are happy with.

Weigh up the cost

This will undoubtedly be the deciding factor of whether you pursue your ideal property or not but taking all costs into consideration is a sensible way of making sure you are not met with any unexpected fees later on in the process. Here you should think about setting up a business loan if required to put you in a better buying position.

This is when you can also consider any potential costs once you have moved into the property such as maintenance, bills to pay and business rates to keep you in control of your expenses from minute one.

Prepare and make your offer

Now that you feel like you’re in a position to make an offer you’re happy with, you can do so by getting in touch with the other party via a written offer. This may not be accepted first time around, but some negotiating will hopefully allow you to reach a compromise you can afford and are content with.

We recommend this is where you do some further digging under the surface to ensure there are no nasty surprises heading your way once the deal has been signed off.
