Business-minded advice for commercial landlords
If you’re a current or prospective commercial landlord, you need to protect your investment and not leave yourself vulnerable to potential problems that may arise if you don’t take careful legal advice before a lease agreement or renewal.

Should something go wrong, such as a tenant unexpectedly going into liquidation or vacating, we’re on hand to provide timely, clear advice on what to do next.
If you’re a current or prospective commercial tenant, the lease on your premises represents one of your biggest overheads. Yet, many commercial tenants are quick to sign without taking legal advice, risking potentially disastrous consequences.

The right legal advice can save you from falling into potentially disastrous traps, including ‘stitch-up’ agreements that can leave tenants subject to unfair conditions.
