Rights & Liabilities when Acquiring/Disposing of a Business
Whether you are buying or selling the shares in a company or the assets of a business, it is likely that there will be property included in the deal. This could be in the form of freehold or leasehold property, and with regard to leasehold property if only the assets of a business are being purchased or sold then the lease will need to be assigned.
If you are buying property that is subject to a lease with a Tenant already in place, you could inherit any existing liabilities so it is important to ensure that you have someone with the relevant expertise to help you carry out the due diligence required.
At Gepp Solicitors, we are experienced in the buying and selling of businesses and have the right individuals to help you achieve your commercial goal.
