What is a commercial lease?

A commercial lease is a legally binding contract made between a landlord and a business tenant. The lease gives a tenant the right to use a property for business or commercial activity for a period of time in exchange for money paid to the landlord.

Additionally, the lease outlines the rights and responsibilities of both the landlord and tenant during the lease term.

What does drafting or reviewing a commercial lease involve?

Drafting a lease involves arranging a consultation with one of our solicitors where you make it clear exactly what you want from this lease regarding the duration, pay and requirements of your commercial tenant. Our solicitors will then produce a lease in line with your demands.

Reviewing a lease involves booking a consultation with one of our commercial lease solicitors. Our commercial lease solicitors, will thoroughly read through the contact produced by your landlord and make sure the terms and conditions of the lease are clear to you. Additionally, our solicitors will inform you about the fairness of your lease contract.

How much will it cost to draft or review a commercial lease?

Each commercial lease is different, which makes it impossible to provide an exact estimate on the cost before the initial consultation. We offer an untimed initial consultation priced at £108, including VAT to inform us on the details of your case.

A cost estimate of reviewing or drafting a lease agreement is anywhere between £300 to £3,000 plus VAT depending on the complexity and the amount of input you require from a solicitor.

How long does it normally take to draft or review a commercial lease?

Again, this will depend on the complexity of your lease and the amount of negotiation needed.

For the most part, the creation of the actual lease application will take between 24 to 72 hours. Following the creation of the application, the time frame depends on whether the business tenants want to negotiate the terms and conditions. In a straight-forward agreement the lease can be approved on the same day it was applied.

Key stages involved in drafting or reviewing a commercial lease?

Depending on your matter, a typical review of a commercial lease case would involve:

  1. Initial consultation to understand your matter
  2. Review of the terms of the contract and calculating any potential losses
  3. Advising on the fairness of the contract
  4. Drafting and sending a letter before action to the other side outlining your claim and position
  5. Dealing with the response, if any
  6. Negotiating a finalised lease that is in line with your companies desires.
