Should any dispute arise within the landlord and tenant relationship then we are able to inform you of your choices and, if essential, take the suitable action to keep your best interests.
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has shaped a Code for Leasing Business Premises in England and Wales. The Code, which is sanctioned by both government and leading organisations in the property sector demonstrating both owners and occupiers, aims to promote fairness in Commercial Conveyancing and encourage transparency and flexibility in the property market.
We take up the RICS Code when granting or negotiating new Commercial Conveyancing to make certain that the lease is reasonable and not one sided. Without specialist guidance from a commercial solicitor the lease you are about to enter into may be principally serious.
We make sure that you gain a better admiration of the series of terms that you are able to negotiate and to elevate consciousness to issues you may not have considered relevant to your business.
We know how to help you with decisions on matters such as:
- The length of term. How long do you wish for the commercial lease to last?
- Repair. What state of repair and condition does the property have to be kept in?
- Rent reviews. How is the rent to be reconsider and how often?
- Break clauses. Will the landlord or tenant be able to bring the lease to an end before the term ends?
- Assignment and Sub-letting. Will the tenant be sanctioned to sell or sub-let the property if needed?
Ideally, whenever you like agreeing terms of any lease, prior to drafting the lease, heads of terms should be drawn up and agreed. This will encourage simplicity and if applied will lead to transactions being completed more speedily and with fewer disagreements both at the outset and during the course of the lease.
