Services for commercial Tenants

Whilst the terms of the lease are to a certain extent dictated by the landlord, there are changes that the tenant can make to ensure that the lease is balanced and the tenant's position improved. In our negotiations with your landlord's solicitors we will make sure that the landlord cannot impose unreasonable requirements on you if, for example, you want to transfer your lease or use the property for a different purpose. This gives you greater flexibility to change your business to meet the tough challenges of today's markets and makes the lease more attractive to future tenants should you wish to transfer your lease.

We can help you:-

  • negotiate the terms of a lease
  • advise you on the terms of the lease and rent deposit deed
  • carry out searches and enquiries of the landlord to ensure the property is suitable for your needs
  • checking the legal title for restrictions or rights
  • protect your interests when the lease is coming to an end
  • in the transfer of your existing lease to a new tenant
  • in negotiating changes to your lease
  • when you wish to carry out works to the property
  • negotiate compensation settlements under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954

It is not just the terms of the lease itself that matter, there are also matters to be considered on leases such as stamp duty land tax and registration of the lease at HM Land Registry.

Our priority is to make sure you know what you are taking on and what to expect in the future from your landlord so that you can plan ahead
