A lease is a legally binding contract between the legal owner (landlord) and the occupier (tenant).  It can contain many important terms and failure by either party to comply with those terms could result in court action. That’s why it is important to get timely and good legal advice from highly reputable commercial property solicitors at Bell and Buxton.

Our specialist commercial property solicitors have a wealth of experience advising both landlords and tenants. We are used to working under time pressures; the advice we provide is always pragmatic and takes into account your commercial considerations.

In our experience, the more that can be agreed in the ‘Heads of Terms’ the smoother and quicker the transaction will proceed. We recommend contacting us at the outset of negotiations as we can identify key points that need consideration from a legal perspective.

We will ensure that the deal reached is properly reflected in the lease document and that important provisions such as rent review or insurance are appropriately drafted.  

We can assist landlords and tenants on all aspects of their business lease, from the initial grant of the lease, through to bringing a lease to an end or renewing a lease.

  • Lease Surrenders;
  • Service Charge issues;
  • Rent Review advice;
  • Enforcement of Covenants;
  • Lease Renewals under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954;
  • Assignments and Sub-lettings;
