Landlord & tenant (residential & commercial)
We know that the relationship between you and your commercial tenants can be complex. Lease negotiations aren’t always straightforward and your relationship doesn’t neccesarily end with them vacating the property. That’s why we offer commercial lease advice throughout the life of the tenancy.
As well as negotiating standard commercial lease agreements on your behalf, our experienced commercial lawyers can assist with issues arising throughout the tenancy agreement, including recovering rent arrears and resolving issues, such as subletting, which are contrary to the agreement.
We can also support you in relation to dilapidation claims, renewal of expired leases and any other breaches of agreement, such as the tenant not fulfilling their obligation to repair and maintain the property.
Of course, as a commercial landlord you need to make sure that your property investment is managed to your best advantage. We understand that you’re under pressure to keep tenants in your property, both to cover your mortgage and to avoid liability for rates, so it’s in your best interests to manage negotiations quickly, efficiently and commercially.
We always recommend you seek legal advice from a specialist commercial lawyer as early as possible and before you commit to a tenancy agreement. Drafting your own commercial property lease could expose you and your business to long-term financial liabilities and obligations.
