Commercial Leasing and Commercial Lease Agreements
If you are intending on becoming a landlord or tenant of a commercial property, it is important that you engage a solicitor before signing any agreement in relation to a commercial property. Agreements can have a variety of names such as “Lease proposals”, “Agreements to lease” or “Offers to Lease” and are not documents that should be signed without legal advice as you could be bound by this form of agreement before even signing a formal lease.
This is an opportunity to check that you are happy with what is proposed and also the time to add anything else you would like seen in your lease agreement or negotiate the removal of some aspect of that agreement. Because once the final lease document has been produced, it is quite often hard to renegotiate the terms.
Leases can usually have long terms attached to them in the commercial space, therefore it is imperative that all concerns and wishes are voiced before the final lease is drawn up. This is the case if you are either the lessor or lessee as you don’t want to be bound by an agreement you are not happy with, it is essential you get it right from the start and you are aware of the agreement you are entering.
