Drafting a commercial lease

Leasing a commercial property can be a lucrative business – but the legalities must be watertight. This starts with the commercial lease.

The lease is the contract between you and your commercial tenant. It determines what your tenant can and cannot do going forward. For example, can your tenant assign the lease? Or can your tenant make alterations? These things are all decided by the terms of the lease, so the wording is of the upmost importance.

If you want to rent out a commercial property, the team here at Cooklaw Solicitors can help you. We will discuss your requirements before drawing up a lease that aligns with your objectives. We’ll make sure that the terms not only work in your favour, but also comply with the rules and regulations.

We can also advise you on clauses that need careful consideration, such as:

  • Rent and rent reviews

  • Repair obligations

  • Break clauses

  • Service charge

The terms of the commercial lease may be based on the Heads of Terms. This is a document setting out the main terms of a commercial transaction that has been agreed in principle. We can draft Heads of Terms on your behalf, which will then provide the basis for the final contract. We can also organise a schedule of condition to be attached to the lease.

Ongoing support for commercial landlords

Once the lease has been signed and the tenant has moved in, a commercial landlord may need further support from a commercial property solicitor. This might occur if:

  • You want to carry out due diligence on a new tenant

  • You want to terminate the lease

  • You are dealing with a dilapidation claim

  • You want to refuse the renewal of a lease under security of tenure

  • You are trying to recover rent arrears

  • You tenant has made an application for consent

  • You cannot resolve a dispute with your tenant
