Commercial Property Lease Solicitors London
The commercial property solicitors at Anglo Law, with their comprehensive knowledge of London's commercial sector and exceptional attention to detail, are ideally placed to advise on all matters relating to commercial leases.
Grants and Renewals of Leases
We regularly act for commercial tenants and landlords who are looking to grant or extend an existing lease or business tenancy. We appreciate the importance of delivering a fast and accurate service – there will often be critical time limits when it comes to negotiating upon the grant or renewal of a lease. Our commercial property lawyers will work closely with you and all of your other professional advisers such as accountants and surveyors to negotiate terms and address any issues pragmatically and proactively. We will make sure all commercial opportunities in your favour are exploited to achieve the business success you desire and deserve.
If you are a landlord, we will ensure all documents are drafted and negotiated upon to maximise your investment and income potential. We will ensure you are fully aware of all plans the potential tenant has for your property and that those plans are executed correctly, and your property is cared for as it should be. Most of all we will ensure your transaction proceeds as seamlessly as possible to minimise and mitigate any empty or void periods your investment faces.
If you are a tenant, we will ensure any grant or renewal to you includes all the issues which matter to you and your business whether this means negotiating rent-free periods or lease terms which allow your business to grow without onerous constraints. We always undertake rigorous due diligence through careful and considered searches and enquiries. We will provide you with a thorough written report on our findings and upon all of your lease obligations before you are expected to sign any document, together with an itemised statement of any monies you will have to pay for your premises upon completion.
Rest assured, whether a landlord or tenant we have a wealth of experience to advise and guide you through this exciting time. As with all our clients, we will remain on hand throughout the years to advise you upon any issues which may arise. With Anglo Law Solicitors your matters are in safe hands.
Assignments, Surrenders and forfeiture of leases
If you are unhappy with your commercial lease or just feel it is time to move on we will work on your behalf to find a workable solution.
We can support you to assign your lease to another commercial tenant explaining the procedure to you in accordance with your lease in clear, jargon-free English. The assignment of a lease in most modern-day leases follows an established process. Any potential new tenant will need to be vetted by the Landlord and will have to produce references and proof of finances for consent to be given by the Landlord. We will work efficiently and quickly with all solicitors involved to make sure any potentially good tenant is not overlooked and the transaction proceeds smoothly and with certainty.
Thereafter, once the new tenant has been accepted, we will ensure all licences and transactional documents are drafted, amended and agreed with you and your businesses very best interests in mind. You will regularly be able to keep up to date on the status of your transaction with access to our 24-hour state of the art, secure, client portal. We will use this to send you secure and sensitive documents and to provide you with updates.
We can also advise you if you choose to surrender your lease altogether, negotiating with your landlord throughout to make sure you obtain a fair and honest outcome. Our solicitors can advise on all legal requirements to ensure successful surrender of a commercial lease, explaining your options clearly to establish the best strategy for your business. Whether the surrender is agreed by Deed or by operation of the law we will explain each stage and outcome so that you can make the right decision. We also take care of removing your interests from the title of the property so you will have peace of mind that you can move on without worrying about any nasty surprises cropping up in the future.
We understand that the decision to surrender a lease may sometimes be necessary due to matters outside of your control and despite your very best endeavours to keep your businesses going. We will help you through this potentially stressful time to minimise any further worry and by keeping in mind your objectives and what is most important to you at the time.
Similarly, we also have extensive experience with acting for Landlords who have to take the difficult decision of terminating a lease whether by frustration of the lease and lawful eviction or when accepting a surrender from a tenant. We understand you will want to keep any further loss of income or damage to your property to a minimum. We will act quickly to bring the situation under control and to an end efficiently and favourably as possible.
