Before agreeing to a lease of commercial property, whether a landlord or tenant, it is essential to be fully aware of the lease terms and their implications. There are many issues which need to be considered and negotiated to ensure they best suit your needs.
Particular consideration should be paid to liability for repair, permitted use, rent reviews, alterations, alienation, service charge obligations and so on. If these areas are not satisfactorily dealt with prior to the commencement of the tenancy, then significant time and expense can be incurred dealing with such issues as the lease term progresses.
As landlord or tenant, when agreeing and negotiating the terms of a lease you need the advice and guidance of a solicitor who has expertise in landlord and tenant law. Poor or lack of advice at the outset could prove very costly both during and at the end of the lease.
