Commercial Leases

Whether you are a landlord or a tenant a plc or private individual, commercial leases require expert advice. We have the skill and experience to guide you through a commercial lease and make sure it works for you. We have acted for both private landlords and public national companies in letting their commercial property.

As a landlord, you want to make sure you maximise your commercial property and optimise the returns. For example, attention to detail on such things as rent review clauses are key. Similarly repair and dilapidations at the end of the lease. You cannot leave these issues to standard drafting dealing with historic buildings in York.

As a tenant, you require maximum flexibility if your business grows and you want to move before the lease has come to an end. You want to make sure the building is up to scratch, fit for purpose, and you are not responsible for historic disrepair.

We can help with all these issues, and you can benefit from our detailed knowledge of York’s commercial letting market. You can also benefit from our professional connections enabling you to access advice on all relevant areas.
