At some point, most expanding businesses will need to take on commercial premises. Many will not have the funds or the desire to commit to purchasing such premises and so will take property on a leasehold basis.

Landlord & Tenant is a complicated area of law. Many of the guiding principles have not changed for years and much of the terminology used is archaic and confusing. It is vitally important that you seek legal advice early in the negotiation process and certainly before any Heads of Terms are agreed or signed to ensure that you understand the legal implications of the terms that are being agreed.

Whether landlord or tenant, we can help you ensure that these terms are fair and reasonable to both parties and that they are incorporated correctly into the lease documentation, dealing with any negotiations on your behalf along the way if required.

Raworths Commercial Property team have a huge amount of experience acting for both landlords and tenants in commercial lease negotiations. We have acted for both parties on numerous transactions from leases of small commercial premises right through to acting for landlord’s of mutli- let estates, national retailers and leisure industry tenants.
