Site Acquisitions / Assembly

The commercial property team at Ashley Wilson has been involved in site acquisition and site assembly for many years.

The most well known acquisition related to the assembly of various leasehold and sub-leasehold and shareholders interests in a company known as “Ilford Pioneer Market”.

Planning permission was subsequently obtained for a twin tower development of 31 storeys accompanied by the headline in the Ilford Recorder “skyscraper of 31 storeys to change Ilford skyline”.

We continue to work actively with all our clients in the acquisition and assembly of sites through option or conditional contract or otherwise in parallel with clients’ other professional advisers particularly planning consultants and accountants.

Commercial Finance

Repeated and regular contact with a wide range of lenders and their introducers enables us to assist clients in a whole range of commercial finance requirements. We do not charge fees for such introductions.

We are on the panels of all the mainstream lenders and under circumstances where lenders appoint their own panel of solicitors we work closely with those firms at all stages to ensure rapid conclusion of security documentation and draw-down to coincide with client’s deadlines.
