    Commercial Property Conveyancing Dublin & Ireland

    What factors does a business need to consider when purchasing a commercial property?


    Consider the location of the property and its proximity to transport links, amenities, and other businesses. The location can affect the potential rental income, resale value, and demand for the property.

    Zoning and planning

    Check the zoning and planning regulations for the property to ensure that it is suitable for your intended use. You may need planning permission for certain types of use, and zoning regulations may limit the types of activities that can be conducted on the property.

    Condition of the property

    Have the property surveyed to assess its condition and identify any potential issues or defects. This can include structural issues, building code violations, or environmental concerns.


    Consider the cost of the property, including the purchase price, stamp duty, legal fees, and any other associated costs. Be sure to factor in ongoing expenses such as maintenance, insurance, and property taxes.


    Determine how you will finance the purchase, whether through a mortgage, bank loan, or other means such as director’s loan. Be sure to consider the interest rates, repayment terms, and any fees associated with the financing option.

    Legal matters

    Carmody Morans expert commercial property solicitors will review and negotiate the terms of the purchase agreement, including any conditions of sale, warranties, and representations.


    If the property is currently let, consider the terms of the existing lease and the rights and obligations of the tenant and landlord. You should also assess the rental income and the potential for future rental income.

    Overall, purchasing a commercial property in Ireland requires careful consideration of various factors. It is important to seek professional advice from a solicitor, surveyor, and /or accountant to ensure that you make an informed decision and understand the legal and financial implications of the purchase.

    • sites (other than sites purchased with a connected agreement to build a house or apartment)
    • commercial or business premises, including offices, factories, shops and public houses
    • the creation or transfer of options over land
    • interests in land (such as wayleaves or other rights to lay cables, pipes, wires or other conduits)

    It’s important to note that stamp duty rates are subject to change over time, and there may be exemptions or reliefs available for certain types of property transactions. For example, there may be lower rates or exemptions for transactions involving certain types of businesses or properties, such as agricultural land or certain types of charitable organisations, or land re-structuring schemes, and these rates and various relief schemes can fluctuate and be subject to expiration dates.

    When planning to purchase a commercial property in Ireland, early advice with an expert commercial property solicitor and tax advisor to ensure that you fully understand the stamp duty implications of the transaction and any potential exemptions or reliefs that may be available is always to be recommended.

    We used Carmody Moran's conveyancing services, and we couldn't have wished for a better solicitor. Caila was extremely professional, responsive and knowledgeable. As first-time buyers, everything was new to us, but she had our back every step of the way, and was looking out for our best interests during the whole process. When things turned difficult on closing date, Caila intervened promptly and sorted everything out for us, even when it looked impossible. We cannot recommend Carmody Moran enough, and we'll surely use them for any future legal affairs we may have!

    I was looking for a family law consultation and asked Carmody Moran for one. Unfortunately, they didn't have the capacity, but at least they were nice enough to call me back and reply by email.So the very least you can expect from these specialists is the right attitude (unlike from many others out there on the market), but likely a lot more!

    We recently engaged Carmody Moran Solicitors for the purchase of our home, on receiving a recommendation for Caila Ryan specifically. Caila and the team were a pleasure to deal with. Caila was incredibly responsive, efficient and diligent throughout the process. As first time buyers, Caila explained all steps clearly and concisely to us, which eased our stress. Caila and the team went above and beyond for us - and accommodated ad hoc meetings when required. We highly recommend Caila and the team at Carmody Moran.

    We recently closed on a first time house purchase and we were very pleased with how the whole process was handled at Carmody Moran. They always responded clearly and promptly to the many queries I had along the way and were on the ball with following up issues with the sellers solicitors to keep the process moving.The reason I went with them originally over other options was because they gave a very clear breakdown for the charges and the quoted price we were given was transparent and easy to understand compared to other quotes I received.I will definitely use them again if the need arises and recommend them to my friends and family.
