Solicitor promises fixed-cost landlord tenant service

Bolton-based Stephensons Solicitors LLP has launched a dedicated commercial property department and is offering set legal packages for landlords and tenants.

The basic package for a tenant starts from as little as £300 plus VAT and disbursements and includes preparation of a report on the initial lease received and dealing with completion formalities, including registration at the Land Registry if appropriate. The fee for a landlord starts from £350 plus VAT and disbursements which includes preparation of a standard lease incorporating terms that the landlord has agreed with the tenant and completion formalities.

David Baybut, partner and head of commercial property at Stephensons, said: "In the next six months, we will launch further fixed-cost services for our business clients, including recovery of unpaid rent, repossession, as well as opportunities for our clients to be introduced to third party service providers to secure competitive rates."
