The right Lease adds value to both the property and the Tenant’s business.

Whether you are negotiating a Lease or need assistance with an existing Lease, our experienced Property Lawyers can help you get it sorted.

How We Help

We assist both Landlords and Tenants of commercial offices, industrial properties, shopping centres and retail shops.

As Leases are agreements that bind parties for usually 3-5 years it is important for both the Tenant and the Landlord to ensure that the Lease they enter into is appropriate for their individual circumstances.

When disputes arise they need to resolved or addressed swiftly to reduce losses to Landlords and/or protect business value for Tenants.

Landlords

It is essential that your Tenant signs an effective and enforceable Lease before taking possession of your property.

Additionally the Lease should include adequate securities or guarantees, limitation and exclusion of liability clauses, indemnities and dispute resolution provisions to protect your investment and make the Lease attractive to future purchasers of the property.

Whilst good Leases add property value, bad Tenants need to be dealt with swiftly, particularly if the Lease gives inadequate security.  This will typically involve termination, taking possession and finding a new Tenant.

Tenants

You should obtain legal advice before signing a Lease or taking possession of leased premises as some Leases contain particularly onerous provisions that could have a significant negative impact on your business at a later stage.

It is important that your lease also include appropriate options to renew and rent review provisions to maximise goodwill attached to the site for you and any future purchase of your business.
