Surveyor focus for Thrings’ latest commercial property seminar

November 10, 2015

Graduate and junior surveyors from across the South West will have the opportunity to pick up useful tips and practical advice from legal experts at regional commercial law firm Thrings’ latest commercial property seminar.

Members of Thrings’ commercial property team will discuss a range of topics facing post-qualified experience surveyors (PQE) of up to five years at the event which takes place at the firm’s Bristol offices tomorrow.

Legal tips and practical guidance on opposing lease renewals, right of way disputes and the principles of forfeiture – the right of a landlord to terminate a lease early if a tenant breaches a covenant – will all feature at the seminar.

The full programme of presentations being given by Thrings’ commercial property team is:

*  Amari Rajendran: The basics of forfeiture

*  Matthew Smith: Key considerations in opposing lease renewals

*  David Quinn: Disputed rights of way

The event is the latest in a series of commercial property seminars hosted by Thrings. It follows last month’s dilapidations seminar which was attended by more than 50 South West commercial dilapidations professionals.

Thrings associate solicitor Matthew Smith said: “In what is becoming an increasing active commercial property market, we are seeing a growing number of clients in the region who are seeking specialist legal advice on forfeiture, rights of way and opposing lease renewals for the conversion of office space to residential units.

“The aim of the seminar is therefore to impart some of the knowledge gained from our experiences in these areas and highlight some of the key challenges facing surveyors working in and around the South West.”

Pre-event drinks for the seminar will be served from 5pm, with presentations starting at 5.30pm. The event will conclude with drinks and networking with Thrings’ solicitors on-hand to continue discussing key themes and answer guests’ questions.
