Commercial property encompasses not only the sale and purchase of interests in commercial property (e.g. shops, offices, warehouses, hotels) but also the grant of leases and an understanding of the provisions of Part II of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.
CLT provides courses and events responding not only to changes in the law but also changes in practice. For example, our Building Blocks series of courses takes you from the basic tenets of a lease of whole through to Allnatt v Newton clauses, turnover rents and non-competition provisions, from a simple Agreement for Lease to development agreements involving construction law principles.
But in the competitive world of commercial property, you must also have a good grasp of other related areas such as planning law, litigation, finance, construction contracts, tax and a passing relationship with the concepts of Company Law (your client is more than likely to be a Company!). The client is looking for added value and of course now the SRA is looking for compliance with a competency framework…where do you begin?
We run courses for every level of experience. From An Introduction to Commercial Property to Capital Allowances (are you aware of how the 2014 changes affect lawyers?) from Pop-Ups to Construction Documents for Property Lawyers (and more intensive courses for non-contentious construction lawyers too!).
Our webinars respond to recent events such as fracking, the Government’s Green Deal and CRAR as well as the ever popular 'News Alerts' (giving you the up to the minute changes in law and practice).
Our speakers are experts in their fields many with City experience. David Brock has worked on some of the more iconic projects of our age (Canary Wharf, Kings Cross and the Channel Tunnel Rail Link) and Rachel Sanders (Capital Allowances) is Director, Head of Financial & Economic Consulting at AECOM.
