Commercial Leases

Commercial leases set out your obligations and rights as between you (as the occupier, or tenant) and the property owner (or landlord). As business premises are vital to being able to run many businesses, getting the lease right is important.

Common issues to consider include the duration of the lease (known as the “term”), the rent, who will pay different outgoings, the landlord’s right to inspect the property, obligations to carry out repairs, rights for the landlord to take possession back if the tenant doesn’t pay the rent on time and “make good” obligations at the end of the lease.
There is also a number of different types of commercial lease available for different scenarios and they can quickly become confusing if you’re not familiar with the process.

Examples include retail leases, commercial leases, licences, assignments and sublease agreements.

Some types of lease have other rules that apply and that you will need to take into account when negotiating.
