Entering a new lease is an extremely important time in the relationship of Landlord and Tenant. At the early stages everything is amicable, the deal is in the process of being agreed and everybody is happy.
As things progress our specialists can guide you, talking in plain English and helping you negotiate the precise terms and wording to make sure that everything is clear and has been considered.
For a tenant, it’s not just a case of signing up to a Lease and paying the rent, but knowing the responsibilities that go with it, such as repairing and decorating and possibly the need to pay service charges. For the landlord it’s not just a case of hoping the tenant pays rent, but knowing who is responsible for repairs and knowing what happens at the end of the term.
If you need to change things during a lease, our commercial property specialists can assist with licence to assign, licence for alterations, surrenders, break notices and more.
Despite everyone’s best intentions, sometimes disagreements can arise which is where our litigation and dispute resolution specialists can help: typically this could include issues such as rent arrears and dilapidations.
