Commercial & Property Law

Property transactions are the most important legal event in most people’s lives. As a result, they can also be the most stressful. The issues involved in buying and selling businesses or property, or entering leases and mortgages can be impossible to negotiate without a competent professional assistance.

Dain has twenty years’ experience covering a wide range of commercial transactions, acting for large corporations and finance companies, to small investors. We offer a range of commercial and property law services, including:-


We accept instructions from landlords of shopping centres, commercial and industrial premises in preparation of agreement to lease and lease documents and associated ongoing management issues such as lease renewals, consents to assignment of lease, rent review negotiations and lease enforcement.

On behalf of tenants, we review and negotiate the terms of new leases and attend to lease renewals, assignments of lease and other lease management issues.

Business Sales & Purchases

Business sales and purchases can be complex. You should always seek our advice prior to signing a business sale contract as there are many important issues that need to be properly considered and addressed in the contract.

A business sale and purchase usually involves related issues such as business licence requirements, leasing and the practical logistics of business handover such as stocktaking and management of employees.


We are able to act for you in conveyances of all types of properties.

At Robinson Locke, we understand that every conveyance is a very important transaction with high stakes for our client and therefore every conveyance is directly managed by a qualified solicitor.
