Commercial property leases are often complicated documents with highly technical clauses covering a wide range of important issues.

It’s crucial that you receive expert advice to keep you fully aware of all negotiations as they develop.

Main issues include:

  • Terms of the lease.
  • Obligations you must comply with.
  • Obligations of the other party.

Resolving disputes between a landlord and a tenant can be costly, frustrating and time consuming. A well prepared lease helps to avoid any such disputes arising in the first place.
