Meet John Morshead, Hillyer McKeown Partner in the Commercial Property department

If you are seeking commercially astute and legally sound advice from an expert to ensure commercial property transactions are completed with minimum delay, please contact me. I take pride in providing advice which is tailored to the needs of my clients.

I have more than 20 years’ experience acting for clients in relation to property matters, both in the North West and nationally, specialising in the following areas:

  • Commercial property purchases, sales and refinancing
  • Commercial leases
  • Option agreements and conditional contracts
  • Business sales and purchases

The type of clients I act for

My expertise extends to acting on behalf of Pension Trustees in the purchase, sale and leasing of commercial property through their SIPP (Self Invested Personal Pension) or SSAS (Small Self Administered  Scheme) and have dealt with numerous transactions through various corporate pension trustees.

I act for individuals, limited companies, owner managers and small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) and the extent of my experience includes the following clients:

  • Trusts
  • Trading companies
  • Property developers
  • Property investors
  • Banks and other lending institutions

I also act for a number of residential property investors dealing with the purchase, sale and all other property related issues in respect of their buy to let property investment portfolios.

My spare time is spent with my family and friends. I am a keen sportsman, and enjoy both watching and playing, although the playing is largely now limited to cycling and swimming (and the occasional attempt at snowboarding and skiing); I also enjoy travelling.
