Our specialist commercial property lawyers have in depth experience and market knowledge to advise on the full spectrum of letting and renting commercial property, including :-

  • Agreements for lease, which may include planning and/or construction aspects
  • New leases
  • Renewal leases, including dealing with procedures under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954
  • Lease renegotiations (re-gearing – see Glossary)
  • Leasehold management documents – licences to assign/underlet/alter.

We work closely with our clients (whether as landlord or tenant) to understand what is critical for them, which may be the specific terms of the letting, timing or something particular about the other party. Our aim is to alleviate the routine pressures of the letting process, so that our clients can concentrate on their business.


If issues arise, we will suggest compromises which meet the requirements of both parties. Our experience in acting for landlords and tenants means that we know not only what these issues are for each side but also how to provide a workable solution to ensure a positive start to the landlord and tenant relationship.


Where a tenant is renting a new/modern building, we will check the construction document package, particularly any collateral warranties intended to cover any defects.
