How insolvency can affect commercial real estate transactions
The impact of insolvency can be wide ranging from a commercial property perspective as it has the potential to affect contractual obligations and the enforceability of lease terms. It is also likely that buying a commercial property from an insolvency practitioner will differ from the standard acquisition process and there are key differences as to how insolvency operates in Scotland in relation to calling-ups and hypothec. In this session we will look at: why commercial conveyancers need to know about insolvency; the effect which insolvency can have on commercial property contracts; what you need to consider when buying a commercial property from an insolvency practitioner or lender following the calling-up process; and how tenant insolvency can impact on a lease.
Elaine Petterson, Brodies
Transacting with local authorities - what additional issues do you need to consider?
Transacting with local authorities can be a trying experience if you don't know what to look out for. Issues you may encounter range from obtaining the correct authority to common good to procurement law. What do you really need to know and how will the issues potentially affect your transaction? This course will cover additional issues that may affect your property transaction and help you navigate the best way to obtain information from most public authorities.
