Commercial Property: Title And Ownership Issues

Commercial property may be owned jointly as part of a business venture or to make it easier for one of the parties to buy a commercial premises.

Disputes can arise in the following circumstances:

  • One or more party may have made a direct financial contribution towards the purchase of the property or its renovation.
  • A party may have been promised a share of the property and has acted to their detriment as a result.
  • Where one owner refuses to sell the property and the other needs to recover their investment.

Our Property Dispute Resolution team here at Butcher & Barlow are experienced negotiators and utilise methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution such as mediation to obtain cost-effective results.  However, where settlement is not possible, we have the tenacity to apply for an Order declaring the extent of your beneficial interest and for an Order for Sale.


What our clients say

R & V McDonald

We have had a difficult boundary issue to resolve with a large housing developer following the purchase of a new build property from them. With the help of Catherine’s expertise and tenacity, we have been able to bring the issue to a sensible conclusion. We would not have made any progress at all on this issue without the help of Catherine and her colleagues at Butcher & Barlow.
