So, you want to buy your own bar or pub? Whether you’re interested in buying a swanky, city-centre cocktail bar or a traditional country pub out in the sticks, you need to make sure you know what you’re letting yourself in for before you commit.
There are many “how to buy a pub” guides out there but, at some point, you are best getting hands-on advice from pub purchase specialists.
Buying a Bar or a Pub Solicitors
We have acted as solicitor and adviser to many would-be publicans across England and Wales and are familiar with the requirements and specific issues facing the industry, including the impact of the Pubs Code 2016.
Specialist legal advice for pub and bar buyers
We handle everything from freehold/leasehold free of tie pub purchases and short-term tenancy agreements, to the negotiation of PubCo leases with corporate landlords such as Punch Taverns and Enterprise Inns. We are known to several licensed premises specialist agents and know our way around the Punch and Enterprise documentation and process.
We know our “ties” from our “free of”, our “wet” from our “dry”, and a “DPS” from “Premises Licence”. We also know where the PubCos try to get secret value from a business transfer and recognise the peculiar planning conditions attached to some pubs and bars and how this impacts on use and rentability.
