Topps Tiles PLC is Britain's largest supplier of tiles, associated tools and accessories with over 370 stores throughout the UK. They now seek to recruit a Commercial Property Lawyer to join a wider Property Team at their Head Office in Leicestershire.

The Role

Sitting in the Property Team, this role offers significant autonomy, reporting into the CFO and liaising directly with the Property Director and Company Secretary. The successful applicant will manage a broad range of commercial property matters associated with the business' store portfolio which will include:
- HOTs;
- Freehold and leasehold acquisitions of store units on an unconditional and conditional basis;
- Acquisition of new build leasehold units including consideration of development obligations appointments and warranties;
- Freehold and leasehold disposals;
- Asset Management deals: re-gears, surrenders and re-grants;
- Lease extensions and renewals;
- Licences and Deeds of Variation;
- General legal advice associated with the management of a large property portfolio; and
- Instructing and liaising with external lawyers where appropriate.

The Person

The successful applicant will be an experienced commercial property lawyer with a proven track record of managing transactional property matters end to end and the ability to manage their property caseload autonomously. Previous experience in the retail sector would be beneficial.
This role offers an incredible degree of flexibility, both in terms of flexible working hours and the position itself. As this is a new position within the business it gives the successful applicant the chance to truly put their own stamp on it; should you have other commercial experience there is also the opportunity to take on a more hybrid role, working closer with the Company Secretary. Furthermore this position is relevant to those seeking either a full-time or part-time role.
