Signing a lease is a pivotal step
Commercial leases formalise the agreement between tenant and landlord. As a business, signing up for a lease is a significant (and costly) decision. Whether you’re a restaurant, shop or office, you are likely concerned about what legal obligations arise under it.
Know your rights and where there is wiggle-room
Without an expert lawyer reviewing the terms, you may not fully understand what you’re committing to, and more importantly, where there is room for negotiation in your lease. This is especially important because most landlords will try to send you a very unfair and biased lease to start off. These often include various unfavourable terms such as unfair ‘make good’ or repair obligations, poor rent-review mechanisms, high-interest rates, or easy termination clauses. Most importantly, you must ensure that you can’t easily be kicked out of your premises by the landlord.
