Moving into a new office at a time of growth in our business is a great opportunity, but of course it comes with practical and legal challenges which need to be handled carefully. As a long-term client of Barr Ellison, they were once again my first choice to help. Sophie took care of our lease negotiations, statutory declarations, stamp duty forms, building regulations paperwork for the building changes we wanted, and much more behind the scenes. She made sure that there were no surprises hiding in the paperwork. Instead of getting lost in the legal process, I could focus my effort on the important practical choices and plans for the coming year, and now the lease is complete we can continue to grow our company without any unexpected legal problems in our new office.

When opposing the grant of a new tenancy, the Supreme Court has introduced an additional “acid test” for landlords in relation to reconstruction work as a reason to oppose the grant of a new tenancy. [...]
Appellants would be well advised to take care when introducing new evidence to a planning appeal, ensuring that it is available in good time for public inspection, usually via the local authority’s website.
Where planning permission is granted, reasons for the grant of such planning permission may be required to be given, even where there is no statutory duty to do so.
