Acting for Tenants

When renting a commercial property, a tenant may wish to negotiate with their potential landlord on a number of issues.

Here at Lupton Fawcett, we have a team of commercial property solicitors that has a wealth of experience in acting on a tenant's behalf. Our team will ensure that you are fully supported throughout the process, helping you with any issues that may occur.

With offices in Leeds, York and Sheffield, our team can provide help and advice to tenants in and around the Yorkshire area. Speak to Lupton Fawcett today to discuss your needs by calling 0333 323 5292 or complete our online contact form to get started.

Negotiating Terms of the Lease

There are many factors that will influence what type of arrangement a tenant may wish to consider when negotiating with a prospective landlord.

A tenant will usually require the assistance and support of a commercial property surveyor, who will not only help the tenant to identify premises suitable for the tenant's business needs, but also will advise the tenant as to the level of rent that should be payable in the open market for the property in question.

Our team of experienced commercial property solicitors will then step into the transaction, reviewing and negotiating the terms of the lease and any ancillary documentation (which may include a licence for alterations or rent deposit deed) in accordance with the agreed heads of terms for the transaction.

Our team will also provide a report to the tenant, setting out the rights and obligations arising under a commercial lease, and also summarising the main terms of the agreed lease.

How We Can Help

Here at Lupton Fawcett, our solicitors will negotiate on your behalf, keeping you advised as to progress throughout a transaction, and will deal with any practical issues that you may raise prior to completing the lease, following which you will be allowed into the property.

We will also deal with any post-completion requirements, including the payment of any Stamp Duty Land Tax, which may be payable in relation to the lease, and also registering the lease at the Land Registry in order to protect the tenant's position.

  • I was recommended to Lupton Fawcett by our Financial Adviser to deal with our commercial lease renewal. They were able to offer me expert advice and negotiate better terms with our landlord on various matters. They kept me informed of developments and were very professional in all area's. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their legal services.
