Tenants Can Negotiate From A Position Of Strength
How Tenants Can Avoid Potential Booby Traps
Get A Free Consultation With A Commercial Lease Expert
While the multinational retail giants may dominate the popular shopping districts in major towns and cities, the cost of taking on a commercial lease on many high streets is falling dramatically as vacancy rates climb. This means that prospective small business tenants looking to rent high street premises are in a stronger position than ever before when it comes to negotiating favourable terms with landlords.
Effective negotiation with commercially-savvy landlords, however, can best be achieved with the assistance of an experienced solicitor. Commercial leases are often lengthy documents, full of antiquated jargon that can in reality contain various dangers for the tenant if not properly understood. A solicitor with expertise in deciphering and analysing such documents can be critical in helping the prospective tenant avoid these potential booby traps.
