Commercial property FAQs
What’s the difference between freehold and leasehold ownership?
When you own a freehold, you own the absolute title to the entire property and land. Leasehold is an interest granted out of the freehold and is created by an agreement called a lease or tenancy, which gives an interest in the property for a term and usually at a rent. The lease will set out how the tenant’s occupation will operate during the term of the lease and will contain obligations on the part of the tenant and the landlord, for example relating to who is responsible for repairs to the premises.
Why do you need to carry out searches and raise enquiries about the Commercial Property, even when someone is only taking a short lease at a low rent?
If you take on a lease or tenancy of commercial premises, you are, in effect, the owner of the property during the term and are therefore responsible for everything to do with the property (subject to the terms of your lease). If you don’t know what the potential issues are, you cannot factor these into any negotiations or prepare for them, or, indeed, decide not to go ahead at all. Once you have entered into the lease, any problems that arise are your responsibility.
