Business Leases & Advising Landlords and Tenants

Our team has over 30 years' experience in advising Landlords and Tenants on commercial leases. A commercial/business lease/tenancy is generally given a wide interpretation, including shops, offices, warehouses, sports clubs, or community centres.

Business tenancies are subject to the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 which has important implications for the wording of leases and our team keep up to date with current case law to ensure our leases give complete security to our clients.

"Security of tenure" is a phrase used to describe the statutory right granted to tenants under the 1954 Act to remain in occupation of premises after the lease term expires. The tenancy is protected and will continue to run until it is brought to an end in one of the prescribed ways under the 1954 Act (regardless of the term set out in the lease).

We can assist you with serving the correct notices on your tenant should you wish the 1954 Act to be excluded and give no automatic right of renewal.

For commercial tenants, we can also advise you on your obligations under a lease and seek to negotiate clauses and provisions with your landlord's solicitor.

Should you need help in regaining possession of your property or settling rent arrears, our litigation team can also assist you.
