Commercial Property

Switalskis Solicitors Ltd
Cranbourne House, 36 Gracious Street

Ryan specialises in all aspects of commercial property across a number of industry sectors including retail, industrial, offices, and high street shops.  His experience includes:

  • Landlord and tenant work – leases, agreement for leases, licence for alterations, rent deposit deeds
  • Advising on title documents at the Land Registry
  • Sales and acquisitions
  • Refinance and secured lending
  • Development – conditional contracts on planning, options, overage deeds, pre-emption agreements
  • Dealing with post completion duties following conclusion of a transaction, including registration at HM Land Registry, Companies House and Stamp Duty Land Tax at HMRC.


Ryan has a pragmatic approach paired with a friendly nature. He believes that communication is key and prefers to pick up the phone instead of sending email correspondence.  In his experience this really does help to speed up transactions.

Ryan has an acute eye for detail to ensure no finer points are missed on review of the legal documentation in his transactions.


The team act for a large developer who has an ongoing portfolio of over 100 sites with Starbucks. Ryan acted on a site in Widnes exchanging on an acquisition of bare freehold land, conditional on planning permission for a drive thru development for three units, negotiating with Starbucks, and Wendy’s and achieving simultaneous exchange on the purchase and all three agreements for 15-year leases. 
The client will develop the site and then sell the investment either post development or on a forward sale basis.  The Widnes land purchase price was £1.5million, and annual rents for the units are £95k - £110k per annum, with an end development value of £7m. Ryan also advised on the appointment and construction warranties from the contractor and professional team. This case is a great example how Ryan can dovetail transactions to achieve simultaneous legal document exchanges with the seller and three tenants.

Ryan has acted for Yorkshire Cancer Research opening five new shops since joining Switalskis in April 2022.

"I have been working closely with Ryan since he joined Switalskis a few months ago. It is refreshing having a solicitor who I know I can rely on, who is always on the other end of the telephone. Ryan provides a personal and direct approach. Ryan understands our Company’s needs really well and is very thorough, keeping in mind our interests and business intentions. Clear communication, in a timely manner and a pleasure to deal with.  Most of all, Ryan gets things done on time.”
