Our Commercial Property experts are knowledgeable and experienced in providing the necessary legal support that should form part of any lease negotiation.

It is important that the terms you negotiate reflect your requirements as a business owner or protects your asset as a landlord.

How we can help

We work with our clients to fully understand the terms important to them and whether fixed-term security or a more flexible approach is desired depending on their own commercial circumstances.

Our team can help you structure your negotiations surrounding the length of the term, rent, rights to renew (security of tenure), Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 protection, break clauses, repair obligations, incentives and payment security (guarantors and rent deposit deed).

We aim to give you security and protection in your negotiations, safe in the knowledge that you are putting into place a lease that is right for your commercial needs.
