Tom joined the firm in 2011, becoming an Equity Partner in 2022.  He is a transaction expert with thousands of completions, across all property sectors, under his belt. He acts for all types of sellers, buyers, tenants, developers, farmers, traders and investors.

As a residential and commercial property owner himself, Tom is able to draw on his own dealings to give his clients an edge through this unique insight. Investment property particularly excites Tom having advised clients on the acquisition of investments let to “blue-chip” tenants such as Lloyds Bank Plc, Tesco Stores Limited, Co-operative Food Group Limited and The Southern –Co-operative Limited as well as residential and commercial ground rent investments.

With over 10 years of experience, Tom’s clients take advantage of his expertise in the following areas:

  • sale and purchases of freehold and leasehold residential and commercial properties
  • acquisition (including site assembly) and disposal of residential and commercial property interests
  • conditional contracts, joint ventures, overage, option and promotion agreements
  • residential and commercial leases, rent deposit deeds, licences to assign and licences for alterations
  • SIPP and SSAS pension property transactions
  • banking documentation advice and security work for banks, guarantees and third party advice
  • lease extensions and enfranchisement
  • business sale and purchases
  • title issues and investigation including adverse possession claims and title reconstruction
  • easements, surrenders and releases

Having used Parker Bullen LLP previously for other business matters, we didn’t hesitate in instructing them to act for us in the acquisition of a multi-tenanted commercial property investment. Tom Bessant was extremely thorough, advising us at every turn. He was always available to answer any of our questions and at no point did we need to chase him up. We would happily recommend Tom without hesitation.
