Meet Christine Sutton, Hillyer McKeown Partner, Commercial Property

I have over 25 years’ experience in the commercial property field with an emphasis on commercial leasing.

Clients I regularly act for include property investment companies and individuals who are investing in and selling property, while granting and accepting leases. I enjoy interacting with my clients and ensuring that their aims are achieved as smoothly as possible, and with attention to detail.

Clients I work with

I take great pleasure in using my experience to help a wide variety of clients. They are property investors with mixed portfolios of industrial premises, offices, or retail and residential. My clients are also small to medium size businesses requiring help to acquire property for their own businesses.

The diversity of work keeps it interesting. One day I can be assisting clients with industrial or retail office space, the next could involve them making investments in residential property.

My expertise includes:

  • Commercial leases – acting for both landlord and tenant
  • Buying and selling commercial property
  • Refinancing
  • Options and promotion agreements

Complex transactions

I am proud to help landowners with property option agreements. This includes large potential development sites involving national house builders, and small residential plots.  These can be very tricky and potentially costly without the right expertise – this is where our Commercial Property team come in.

Property industry insight

Building strong relationships is important to me.

I am very proud to sit on the board of a successful local property investment company. This gives me a unique insight into the property market from the clients’ point of view, and their aims and aspirations both as investors and landlords.

If you are a property investor looking for a commercial leasing investment or to secure a lease, please contact me for advice and assistance by email or by phone.


Outside of work

I enjoy sailing and have extensively cruised the west coast of Scotland. I am also a passionate gardener and an amateur birdwatcher.
