Commercial leases

A commercial lease governs the relationship between a landowner and tenant. Letting commercial property for any length of time is referred to as a lease.

Common inclusions in a commercial lease include:

  • How long the occupation will last
  • What the rent will be
  • Who will insure the property
  • Who will repair the property
  • If alterations can be made
  • Any circumstances under which a lease can be brought to an end

It is an obligation to have a lease if you have a mortgage allowing occupation of the property. Failure to implement a lease or tenancy document could leave you paying the costs and consequences. It is important to identify the provisions of your agreement and understanding with the occupier or tenant as soon as possible.

A correctly drafted lease will allow you to keep control of your property. If the relationship between landowner and tenant is uncertain it gives greater opportunity for disputes to arise which can end in costly litigation.
