We have considerable experience in advising both landlords and tenants of business premises. Whether you are intending to grant or take a new lease or wish to assign an existing lease, we can provide the necessary expertise and advice in what has become a rapidly changing area of law.
It is essential for landlords and tenants to be aware of the legislation which gives tenants of commercial properties rights relating to security of tenure and compensation if a business tenancy is not renewed. We can deal with the necessary documentation if a lease is to be contracted out of the legislation and with the notices which have to be served to bring commercial leases to an end. If an application for a new lease is to be contested, we can advise on the grounds of opposition and the steps which need to be taken by the landlord or by the tenant.
Areas of advice include:
- Commercial leases
- Lease renewals and terminations
- Rent reviews
