Commercial Property Investment and Auctions

My clients are high net worth individuals, property companies, investment funds and asset managers, based both in the UK and offshore.  I advise clients who are acquiring, disposing of or investing in a range of commercial property, from retail and warehousing through to office premises, hotels, licensed premises, and residential developments.

I am fluent in Punjabi and Hindi. 

Experience

Having built up a strong reputation in my field over several years with other well-established law firms I joined Harold Benjamin in 2010. 

Some of my major transactions handled include:

  • The sale of a commercial investment property at auction for circa £9.5 million.
  • The re-financing of a property portfolio for an aggregate of circa £23 million.
  • Acting for a landlord on the grant of a lease to a major car retailer at an annual rent of circa £350,000.
  • Acting for a niche manufacturing tenant on the grant of a lease of factory premises at an annual rent of circa £350,000.
  • The acquisition of a development site for a mixed use development of circa 125 units.

I have a wealth of experience in a broad range of commercial real estate work.  My particular expertise includes acquisitions and disposals of property, whether by private treaty or auction, for investment purposes, owner occupation or development.  I also advise on secured lending matters and landlord and tenant issues including new lease acquisitions, lease renewals and leasehold management matters. 

My background as a general practitioner means my expertise in commercial real estate work is complemented by knowledge and experience of business sales and purchases, residential property matters, estate planning and dispute resolution.
