Rapid action to secure a business sale

A young couple decided to buy a business and negotiated a two week settlement, not realising how much needed to be finalised in those two weeks.

Situation

A young couple decided to buy a business and negotiated a two week settlement, not realising how much needed to be finalised in those two weeks.

Strategy

Marriott Oliver worked closely with the couple, vendor’s solicitor and landlord to:

  • arrange for a new lease
  • check that there were no unforeseen issues with the business
  • negotiate changes to the contract
  • make certain all necessary licences were in place.

Our informal and collaborative approach ensured the focus was on getting everything resolved and organised rather than looking for obstacles.

Success

In two short weeks Marriott Oliver finalised arrangements for the couple’s purchase and ensured a smooth transition. The young couple are now running a successful business secure in the knowledge that all their legal matters are in order.
