Advice on buying a pub in Essex

There are many “how to buy a pub” guides which will give you some useful background information but, when it comes to working out whether the pub you’ve made an offer on in Essex is a sound investment, you really should seek advice from solicitors who are pub purchase specialists.

Get the best deal: use specialist pub purchase solicitors

Truelegal acts for sellers and buyers of pubs across England and Wales, including pub purchases in the London area. We handle everything from freehold/leasehold free of tie pub purchases, 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.

Our familiarity with the specific requirements and challenges of the pub industry –  including the ramifications of the new Pubs Code 2016 for pubco tenants – means we can give you no-nonsense, practical advice and guidance that will help your transaction run smoothly, minimise your risk exposure and save you time and money. For example, we know where the pubcos try to get secret value from a business transfer and recognise the peculiar planning conditions attached to some pubs and how this impacts on use and rentability.

And if you’ve yet to find the pub of your dreams in Essex, we deal with selling agents in our day to day dealings and are happy to recommend ones we think are the most professional.
