Do I need a lawyer when taking a lease on commercial premises?

Timeframes vary according to individual lessor/lessee but a straightforward lease could be completed in 6-8 weeks. Please contact us for a free initial consultation.

Can I use these premises for………….?

Usage clauses and planning issues are common queries – it is wise to thoroughly investigate the legality of your specific intended use to ensure it is permitted.

Liam Wolley dealt with the sale of my stepmother’s property in 2021/2022 efficiently and with great care and sensitivity. In 2023, Rebecca Padgett dealt with obtaining probate for my stepmother's will. Again, this was dealt with efficiently and with sensitivity. I would very happily recommend Thorne Segar.

We had a difficult Intestacy when my Father died and his will was not valid. Rebecca dealt compassionately, patiently and professionally with what could have been a very acrimonious affair. From our first meeting with Rebecca we had total confidence that she could and would deal with this situation. At every step of the way she kept us fully updated and all parties were kept aware of all of the possibilities that may or may not occur. We had total faith in her throughout. Her advice was invaluable and at no time did she give us cause to doubt her. A situation that shocked us was made so much easier by Rebecca's total Professionalism. When we were finally able to sell my Father's flat there was absolutely no doubt in our mind that Thorne Segar could deal with this too - and they did in the same first class manner. Its a great pity that we can't give Thorne Segar more than five stars.

Our recent property sale was dealt with very efficiently by Liam. Nothing phased him and we felt reassured by his calm approach to every issue posed by the purchaser’s solicitor. We have had several matters handled by Liam and the rest of the team at Thorne Segar and our experiences have all been positive. In all legal matters they are our ‘go to’ provider.

Earlier this year we consulted Thorne Seagar in Minehead about preparing Wills for myself and my wife. We had an interview with Iestyn who we found very helpful and knowledgeble about Wills. We were very impressed with how they advised us on what can be a very tricky subject to deal with. We now have our Wills and peace of mind it is all sorted. We would certainly recommend and use this Solicitor again.

House Sale: I was apprehensive about using a solicitor for the first time, but found everyone I met or spoke to at Thorne Segar was approachable and helpful, ready to translate anything technical or tricky into terms I could understand, and help me appreciate the implication of anything I was asked about or asked to do. A good experience, thank you Liam and the team.
