Our lease advisory business has a reputation for trusted, well thought out advice built on a foundation of extensive market experience. We offer a forward thinking and commercial approach to the work we undertake for both tenants and landlords helped by close integration with our business rates and agency colleagues.
We deal with all types of commercial property with particular expertise in the office, healthcare, retail and industrial sectors covering advice on Rent Reviews, Lease Renewals, Dilapidations and Lease Restructuring.
- Rent reviews – use our market knowledge and understanding of lease terms to secure the best results.
- Lease renewals – we provide advice on the entire lease renewal process. It starts with helping clients to consider whether to renew the lease or relocate.
- Lease Restructuring – market conditions and break options allow the parties to a lease to improve their positions, usually for mutual benefit. Our depth of experience allows tenants to improve their terms of occupation and landlords to add value to their investment.
- Dilapidations – rely on our knowledge of building costs and market conditions to secure the best outcome.
Wherever possible we try to reach a settlement through negotiation. In all but a few instances we achieve this but sometimes disagreements arise. Typically rent review clauses allow for a referral to either an arbitrator or an independent expert and where a dispute of this nature arises we provide expert witness representation ensuring the strongest possible case is put forward.
Drafting and re-structuring leases and lease clauses, interpreting existing clauses for rent review or lease renewal and guiding clients through surrender, break clause or dilapidations negotiations needs specialist help.
Our approach is simple. We aim to deliver the very best outcome for our clients whether this is maximising returns or minimising occupational costs.
