A commercial lease (or a business property lease) is a legally binding contract between two parties, the owner of a real estate property and a business owner. The documents involved in these are much more complicated than residential leases as the lease tends to be more heavily customised to the individual situation. The terms and conditions of the lease must be carefully read and observed to ensure that they match the needs of your business. If there are any errors or discrepancies, this could cause significant stress and issues right at the beginning of your business progression. One of the key issues we can help you with are the repairing obligations which must be negotiated very carefully.
