Commercial property

Commercial property purchase via a SIPP is a popular investment choice for our clients and therefore makes up an important part of our offering. We own over 1,000 properties with many more purchases pending on behalf of our clients. We employ a dedicated and experienced property team, a member of which is allocated to each individual purchase from instruction through to completion and beyond. This specialist, personable service together with one of the most competitive charging structures for SIPP property purchase in the market, are a couple of the reasons why we are the SIPP provider of choice for many advisers and clients when purchasing a property in this way. More information about our commercial property offering can be found here.

We will consider any UK-based property or land which has commercial use. We will not, however, purchase properties overseas. Below are some examples of the types of property we have purchased on behalf of our clients:

  • Offices
  • Multi-tenanted office blocks
  • Industrial units and warehouses
  • Shops and other retail units
  • Barrister chambers
  • Pubs
  • Plots of land for various commercial usage

Our fee structure for commercial property purchase is one of the most competitive in the SIPP market*:

  • No SIPP establishment fee
  • No fees for transfers in or contributions
  • A flat annual administration fee of £580+VAT
  • A one-off £550+VAT fee to purchase the property
  • A one-off £550+VAT fee where borrowing is involved
  • No additional annual fee from having a property; this is covered by the annual administration fee

Furthermore, all fees relating to the purchase are per property, not per client. Consequently, if two clients purchase a property together, they will each pay only £275+VAT in addition to their annual administration fee.

We do not operate panels of banks which can only be used by clients. Furthermore, while we do insist that a property manager is appointed if the client is tenanting their own building this role can be fulfilled by them. If this isn’t the case, a property manager is needed, again, we do not operate restrictive panels.

Experience has taught us that no two property purchases are the same and that all parties involved in the purchase must work with one another to ensure that the purchase completes in a time efficient manner.

* Depending on circumstances other fees may apply. Not including legal fees
