Pubs For Sale &Alcohol Licencing

Else Solicitors, have a dedicated team of club and pub lawyers.

We specialise in negotiating pub leases and mortgages, buying and selling pubs, and securing Premises Licenses.

Licensed businesses, including hotels, restaurants, pubs, nightclubs and members’ clubs, have specific needs when it comes to legal advice and support.

Buying and selling licensed premises is a unique practice containing many elements that do not apply to other types of commercial property transactions.

Under the Licensing Act 2003, a Premises Licence is needed for various activities, including the sale of alcohol, late night refreshment and providing entertainment.

Depending on the type of services your business offers you may need to apply for a premises licence, a club premises certificate, personal licences or temporary event notices.

Else Solicitors offer expert advice when applying to the relevant authorities for licences. This includes initial applications, transferring or variation of licences, and appealing decisions of licensing committees. We also advise on the buying, selling, leasing, financing and refinancing of all types of commercial licensed premises.

Our commercial property team have years of experience when it comes to negotiating leases and freehold licensed properties, including issues such as ties to a brewery

If you are buying a business in the licensed trade, we will carry out all necessary due diligence and look into the existing licensing arrangements to ensure that your investment is protected.

If you are selling a licensed business, we can put together all the relevant information and documentation about the business in order to increase the chances of an early and smooth sale.

Else Solicitors regularly provide advice on licensing for everything from both one-off events through to the opening of major, new licensed venues. We have acted for pub chains and breweries as well as long-established, family-run enterprises and individual entrepreneurs.
