Lease Advisory

Landlords

The terms of a lease agreement have a direct impact on the investment value of an asset. With rigorous negotiating skills and in-depth technical and market knowledge, our specialist team can help you optimise your lease agreement.

Lease re-structuring – Changing circumstances and objectives often provide the opportunity to review and restructure a lease agreement which can ultimately enhance capital value. Through an in-depth understanding of your objectives, we are able to devise a strategy to optimise returns.

Break options – The modification or removal of a break clause can significantly enhance capital value. We provide strategic advice on the removal or variation of break clauses in existing leases as well as their wording and any conditions.

Lease renewals – Our team will advise on the most effective terms and conditions and assist in negotiations to meet client objectives.

Rent reviews – We provide comprehensive advice on all aspects of the rent review process. In the absence of a negotiated settlement, we carry out a detailed risk and cost assessment when considering dispute resolution alternatives.

General lease advice – We take a multi-disciplinary approach, working closely with our other specialty teams to maximise the performance of your investment. We liaise with our commercial property leasing and investment colleagues to advise on the legal aspects and valuation implications of lease covenants and highlight opportunities to increase the value of your investment.

Tenants

Commercial lease agreements are often only looked at when it is time for a rent review or lease renewal. Taking a proactive approach and anticipating your changing needs and spatial requirements over the term of the lease can reap significant rewards including reduced overheads and occupier’s cost.

Lease re-structuring – Changing circumstances and objectives often provide the opportunity to review and restructure a lease agreement in keeping with your objectives.

Break options – Deferring or inserting a break clause can add to your business. We advise on the removal, variation and insertion of break clauses in new or existing leases.

General lease advice – We take a multi-disciplinary approach to advise on the occupational implications of lease covenants and ensure every opportunity is taken to mitigate your annual costs and reduce risk.
