New Leases

Our vastly experienced and knowledgeable commercial property team can assist with the negotiation and drafting of your lease.

The team have valuable experience working with landlords and tenants on flexible leases for a huge range of properties, from retail units to business offices, to healthcare premises.

We regularly advise on the below in commercial leases:

  • Planning and permitted use
  • Rent deposits and guarantors
  • Covenants
  • Security of tenure
  • Repairs and dilapidations
  • Break clauses
  • Service charges
  • Assignments and novations

A licence is a personal right for a party to use a property. These are usually only for a short duration and can be used to allow a party to start occupying a premise whilst the terms of a formal lease are being negotiated.

We can draft leases to suit any situation and will discuss your requirements with you to ensure that the outcome best suits your needs and interests. For tenants, we will review and negotiate your lease to achieve a deal that protects you and your business.

As part of our comprehensive service, we can also offer advice on any disputes that may arise. Our experienced team can also assist with licence for alterations, lease renewals, subleases, underleases and side letters.

Commercial Property Testimonials

I just wanted to let you know how impressed my wife and I have been with Emily’s work on our recent purchase of some garden land.  I have acted as a chartered surveyor and arbitrator in commercial property for over 40 years and was highly impressed by her great ability, impeccable communication and proactive approach at all times.  She is a credit to your firm and I will always ask her to handle our property matters going forward.
