Legal Help in Commercial Property Lease Issues
We represent and advise a wide range of clients regarding commercial leases, including those who want to rent office, retail, warehouse or factory space; those who would like to take over an existing lease; and those who wish to surrender the lease because they are selling their business.
We Explore and Explain All the Details
Before our clients sign a commercial lease agreement, we make certain they understand all the terms and conditions involved, including the rent, deposit, repair obligations and service charges for gas, water and electricity. We will determine whether you have the correct planning permissions to use the property as you wish and ensure all other planning regulations are complied with to enable you to conduct your business as you intend.
In some circumstances, we may be able to negotiate rent-free periods of tenancy or to extend the term of the lease, when that is a desirable option. We also take the time to discuss what happens at the end of the lease. What is the process for evaluating the condition of the property and for the return of your deposit or the repair of any damage?

What do we provide?
We advise landlords and tenants on all aspects of lease negotiation. Whether you require advice on a new lease, lease renewal, sub-let or an assignment, we can help simplify the process.
Our areas of expertise include the buying and selling of commercial property. If you are considering this type of transaction, we will be pleased to apply our specialised knowledge to every aspect.
Why not utilise our broad knowledge base?
Your commercial lease or your purchase or sale of a commercial property may be part of the acquisition or sale of a business as a going concern, including the transfer of assets, goodwill, stocks, and employees. If so, we will seamlessly combine our property knowledge with our company law expertise, and advise you on the whole process to make sure that nothing is missed.
We can also guide you through the complexities of raising and securing bank finance for your property, or indeed for your business generally.
