We act for both landlords and tenants in the approval of commercial leases for shops, pubs, clubs, offices, restaurants and other commercial settings.
If you are a landlord, we will prepare draft lease documentation according to your instructions.
If you are a tenant, we will review the draft lease documentation supplied to us by the landlord’s solicitor and advise you on the proposed terms and conditions and, where instructed to do so, negotiate amendments on your behalf.
Where appropriate, we will also deal with exclusion of a tenant’s entitlement to security of tenure under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954, complete Stamp Duty Land Tax documentation and deal with registration of leasehold interests at HM Land Registry.
We ensure that you gain a better understanding of the terms you are able to negotiate and to raise awareness of issues you may not have considered relevant to your business.
We can help you with decisions on a range of issues including:
• Licences to assign
• Lease assignment
• Rent deposits
