Commercial leases


We provide advice to landlords on all aspects of their property investments including granting leases, licenses for alterations, assignments, under-lettings and lease termination.  We deal with service of dilapidations schedules at the end of the lease and advice  on resolving disputes when payments cannot be agreed.


For tenants we will negotiate new leases on your behalf, carry out due diligence, deal with SDLT (Stamp Duty Land Tax) and Land Registry formalities. We also advise on  licences to assign or under-let, rent deposits and licences for alterations.  We guide you through the sometimes tricky business of serving break notices and advise on minimising your liabilities at the end of your lease.

If you are considering acquiring a property for investment purposes, we can deal with all aspects of the acquisition including acting for your lender and advising on the terms of the occupational leases. If you have an existing property investment portfolio, we are happy to take on all aspects of management including dealing with assignments, under leases, tenants’ alternations  and giving notice under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.


We pride ourselves on offering a good value service particularly when compared with larger competitors.

We are happy to discuss fixed fee arrangements with you on most transactions in order to provide you with cost certainty. Please contact a member of the team in order to discuss your transaction and what the likely fees will be.
