Many do not realise this is very different from residential property. As a business it is assumed you do not need the protection that a private person buying a house will need. As a result, there are many traps for the unaware.

We offer a service to check over any Lease you are considering signing. We can then liaise with your prospective Landlord or their agent to deal with any queries that arise and seek to solve them to your satisfaction.

Issues to Consider with a Commercial Lease 

  • The Landlord has no duty of disclosure – do you know what questions to ask to get the right answers?

  • Do you understand how to not over-commit and make sure you are not tied to a lease you cannot afford?

  • Do you understand your repairing obligations?

You will come under pressure to sign a Lease by the landlord. You will probably be presented with a long-complicated Lease full of jargon that you do not understand.

For an Affordable Fee we will:

  • Check any lease presented to you is fit for purpose.

  • Ensure you are getting the property you thought you were.

  • Make sure you can do what you want to there.

  • Explain the contents so you understand your repairing obligations and financial liabilities.

  • Avoid any nasty surprises down the line.

New premises must be a good step for any business enabling it to grow and develop. Make sure that it is what it is and does not become a millstone around your neck.
