Hi, My relative is selling their restaurant business and a buyer is interested. The buyer demand that they transfer their business lease to their name first before they sign the business sale contract and pay the deposit. My relative's solicitor just relay the buyer demand back to them and ask them will they do it, with no legal opinion of their own. It doesn't sound right to me, but I am not sure if I am right. If they transfer their lease and they backed out from the deal, what legal recourse do they have to get the lease back without a signed contract / deposit?
