What is a Business Lease?

A tenancy or lease exists where someone lets premises to another for a term in return for a rent. The term of the letting is usually a number of years.

The expression "business lease" is commonly used to refer to a tenancy of premises used for the purpose of running some kind of business. The premises may be a building, part of a building or even open land, used, for example, as a temporary car park. The term "business" as used in this context does not, however, include agriculture or farming, where a different set of rules and customs apply.

Commercial Tenants – We Can Help You Lease a Business Property

We know that leasing the right property is, perhaps, one of the most critical business decisions you will ever make, so it is important that you are properly advised.

Leasing a property can make good business sense as it gives you extra flexibility and can protect you from any potential financial loss when having to buy and sell commercial property.

Our team of specialist leasehold solicitors in Whetstone can negotiate with your landlord, on your behalf, to secure the best terms and provisions in your business lease, protecting you and your business interests.

We will guide and advise you throughout the documentation process, offering sound professional advice at all times. We can help you to agree “heads of terms” with your landlord which will set out details about the property and give you a chance to iron out any issues at an early stage.  We can help you with your due diligence pack and contract that your landlord will provide when your head of terms are agreed. We will help you review all of this documentation and help you identify any potential risks or threats to your business.
