Commercial Conveyancing

Buying or selling commercial property is a decision not to be taken lightly. At Optima we assist you through the considerations that should be had prior to negotiating or entering into an agreement.

Considerations such as:

  • The structure of ownership – personal company, trust or super fund, we will liaise with your accountant in this regard to ensure the right entity is provided for in the agreement
  • The documentation to evidence the sale/purchase
  • What is being transferred
  • Tax – GST (sale as going concern), capital gains tax and income tax
  • Discharge of debt by way of mortgage, security agreement, charge and associated guarantees
  • Lease arrangements – new or transfer existing
  • Council requirements
  • Apportionment of rates, taxes and outgoings
  • Insurance

Not knowing legal issues involved in such a transaction and not doing your research could result in financial hardship, further legal issues and stress.

It is essential that all parties communicate to ensure they understand and agree on the details of the Agreement. We liaise with all parties essential to ensuring all rights and obligations are respectively protected and honoured.
