Advice For Business

Legal services for Landlords and Tenants

As a commercial landlord or tenant, the future of your business could depend heavily on the careful management of your premises, particularly in times of economic struggle.

What do you need?

Our team of commercial property lawyers advise both landlords and tenants. We specialise in landlord and tenant law and can help you with a range of legal work including:

  • the negotiation, grant, renewal and termination of leases
  • assignments
  • licences
  • authorised guarantee agreements
  • rent deposits
  • surrenders
  • tenancy agreements

We advise on a variety of potentially complex issues including:

  • the interpretation of leases generally (and in particular rent review clauses and service charge provisions)
  • rights and remedies on the insolvency of a tenant
  • operating break clauses
  • lease renewals under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954

Reviewing contracts at the outset can help you avoid disputes

It is important to get your contracts right from the outset to ensure they reflect your particular circumstances.

We regularly advise our clients on legal documents (such as leases) relating to their premises and negotiate the best possible provisions - all for a competitive fee.

In our experience, the cost of instructing us to review your lease or assignment pales into insignificance compared to the costs of taking a dispute to court. Court proceedings consume your money, management time and personal energy – those who have been to court would, no doubt, agree.


If you deal with leases, tenancy agreements and assignments regularly, you may be interested in our legal retainer service. This service enables you to contact us for guidance and advice whenever an issue arises as part of our fixed annual fee retainer.
