For the inexperienced, commercial leases are daunting and complicated documents (60–100 pages is not at all unusual). They are also full of traps for the unwary. A solicitor negotiating heads of terms is crucial. For example, tenants often find themselves having to pay huge amounts in service charges for structural repairs because they were not advised on their lease. Equally. a landlord may not be able to maximise his rental increase on a review because of a poorly drafted lease.
A dental practitioner wanted advice regarding a commercial lease of premises in Liverpool. He had big plans as to how he wanted to fit the premises out. We advised him not to leave matters to chance and make sure he obtained both planning consent and landlord’s consent for the works before the lease was granted. It turned out that the landlord was not happy with the proposals and planning permission was refused. A few weeks later he found alternative better premises that he could get permission for. By making sure our client stuck his ground and obtained the permissions before signing, he ended up saving himself from getting into a really expensive mess.
A client wanted to set up a physiotherapy business. He was interested in a lease of a commercial property in Liverpool. He was shocked to learn that the rent was not fixed for the lease term of 5 years, but increased by a minimum of 5% per year. As he was already trying to cut his costs to the bone this was an additional cost he could not afford. In the end, the landlord agreed to remove the automatic yearly uplift in rent.
Because we specialise in commercial lease work in Liverpool we are all too familiar with the hidden dangers in leases and the areas that normally need special attention for landlords and tenants alike. Our advice is jargon free and above all practical. Give us a call to discuss your commercial lease.
