Business Leases

Whether you are a landlord creating a new lease or a tenant being offered one, it’s important to make sure that the lease terms for your business premises are not only fair, but also fit with your business objectives.

For leases of retail premises, offices or other commercial properties, we can give you peace of mind that your commercial lease contains the right information.  It should include the rental amount, payment frequency, length of term and additional service charges. It should also outline the terms under which alterations can be made to the property, the parties’ responsibilities and their obligations to carry out repairs and maintenance.  Whatever the complications, we can set out a simple explanation and make sure the terms and clauses are right for you and your situation.

If you are a landlord and your tenant wishes to sell his business to a new owner, we can look after your needs, and make sure you never have to pay unnecessary costs.

If you are a tenant, before entering into a commercial property lease, you’ll need to negotiate terms with your landlord. We can act on your behalf to ensure that the terms of the lease are appropriate and your business interests are protected.

If the worst happens and legal proceedings have to begin, we can take care of serving notices and any negotiations. Leases are often complex and difficult to negotiate – but with our advice they need never result in a situation which puts you at a disadvantage. Our specialist Disputes team is here to help you.
