Applications are still open for the in-depth Diploma in Commercial Property, commencing on 21 March.

About the course

The Diploma in Commercial Property examines commercial leases, taxation, planning and development, property financing and more. It aims to expose practitioners to the key areas of practice that arise when advising clients in all areas of commercial property transactions. Lecturers will draw on their own experiences of practising in this area with reference to legislative updates, practice directions and practical case studies, to provide participants with the necessary knowledge to advance in this area. The practical emphasis of the course is reinforced by three workshops, which will provide an opportunity to engage with topics through problem based scenarios in a small group setting.

What will you learn?

On completion of this course, participants will have the ability to:

  • review, draft and negotiate commercial leases;

  • identify issues of concern when acting for the landlord or tenant in commercial lease negotiations;

  • draft suitable special conditions for insertion to the general contract for sale in commercial property transactions;

  • advise clients in relation to the acquisition and disposal of various types of commercial property;

  • review standard property lending and investment documentation and advise clients in relation to these documents and  in relation to emerging investment structures; and

  • identify relevant tax issues in relation to transactions

This course is open to lawyers only and is aimed at those with a level of experience in this area.  It will also provide a useful refresher course for those who may have recently returned to property practice and for those looking to update their knowledge in this area. The course is also open to trainee solicitors who have successfully completed
their PPC I.
