Asset management

Gateley Legal's logo

Proactive management of real estate assets is crucial for investors to realise value.

We work with some of the largest landlords and investors in the UK to manage their real estate portfolios, whether that is to set up sites following development, or to buy existing sites and hold as investments.

What do we do?

Critically, our asset management lawyers are experienced in acting for both property owners and occupiers, so they’re able to quickly understand and appreciate the key issues from each side of the deal. This insight gives us the power to slash the time needed to complete a transaction by not getting caught up in lengthy and commercially irrelevant dialogue, and to deliver documentation which will secure a clean and profitable disposal at the end of the process.

Working alongside our in-house real estate investment and development teams, we manage the assets of a wide range of clients across the UK, ranging from shopping centres, outlet malls and high street parades to industrial parks or multi-let office buildings.

Our transactional work includes:

  • Documenting new and renewal tenancies
  • Advising on determining existing tenancies
  • Re-gearing and varying existing tenancies to maximise income stream, tenant covenant or tenant mix
  • Dealing with tenant applications to make alterations or to assign premises.
What impresses me is the delivery, the performance, and the taking of overall responsibility for the legal management and delivery of the projects.

We also deal with property management issues including:

  • Resolving tenant disputes
  • Dilapidations settlements
  • Lease renewal notices and proceedings
  • Break clauses.

Who do we help?

Our expert team works with some of the largest landlords and investors in the UK as well as family offices and private investors.
