What do landlords and tenants need to consider in terms of negotiating terms of a lease?

There are a few general issues both landlords and tenants need to consider when negotating a lease. This includes length of the lease, alterations, what the premises may be used for and much more. Landlords may also need to include extra costs, especially if they’re offering a premium service. It is usual for landlords to charge tenant’s for any legal fees incurred, however a tenant can negotiate the cap on the contributions towards any legal costs.

We draft in accordance to your individual requirements and we can offer specialist advice on various matters for both commercial and residential tenants and landlords.
