Commercial Property

Commercial property transactions require experienced solicitors who can apply their legal knowledge and experience to provide solutions for their clients.

That is what you can expect when you instruct Timms Solicitors.

Over the years, our lawyers have dealt with a ranging portfolio of transactions; from large scale acquisitions for national developers to short leases for up and coming start ups looking to move into their first premises. We believe that no matter your size or your objectives, each client deserves the same level of care and attention.
