Commercial property leases - key facts

Commercial leases can be difficult to comprehend for many landlords and tenants. 
Getting a new commercial lease or lease renewal right from the outset is critical. 

Let us provide you with expert legal advice guidance on getting your lease fit for purpose:

  1. Buyer Beware - find out everything about the property before you complete the lease.
  2. Head of Terms - length of the lease, your rights as it ends, deposits or guarantees required
  3. Repair - your obligations on maintenance and repair
  4. Service Charge - How much? What is it used for? Is there a maximum level?
  5. Stamp Duty - Does it apply? If so, how much?

Typical property questions

1. Is this a “standard” lease with no unusual or onerous clauses to the detriment of the tenant?
2. Does this lease cover the necessary rights and obligations of both parties?
3. Are there any common pitfalls I should be aware of?
4. How does the selling of the property affect the lease?
5. Does this contract permit the lender to break it if planning permission is not secured?
6. Should the deposit and any agreed ‘rent free initial period’ be mentioned in the lease?
