How can we help?
To access legal support from just £140 per hour arrange your no-obligation initial consultation to discuss your business requirements.
Property will likely be one of the biggest expenses for your business. Whether you’re taking out a new lease, or have been presented with updated terms for renewal, it’s important you make an informed decision before committing.
Our fixed-fee lease agreement review service provides you with a written report assessing the terms of the lease along with a clear recommendations as to points to negotiate with your Landlord before you sign in its current format.
Much like you wouldn’t want to buy a car that’s not safe and couldn’t pass an MOT, you shouldn’t commit to a lease agreement that exposes your business to a high-risk position.
Our lease review acts like an MOT for your lease agreement. In a similar way to the fail, advisory or pass results of an MOT, we provide a written report using a RAG (red, amber, green) rating based upon our experience of ‘standard’ letting provisions which are acceptable to a tenant and not unduly onerous.
Our goal is to help you benefit from a positive leaseholder relationship so at the end of the report we provide a clear recommendation whether you should or should not proceed with the lease in its current format.
Don’t expose your business to a high-risk position, enjoy peace of mind with a lease review:
Proactive way to avoid expensive disputes
If you’ve been presented with a lease and asked to sign, our review will give you the reassurance what you’ve been given is acceptable.
Understand your commitments
Your report will clearly highlight any provisions that we deem unclear, unacceptable or otherwise require attention.
Bargaining power to renegotiate terms
If we flag any issues, you can use our report as a tool to help renegotiate terms with your landlord.
Fixed price service
Is this suitable for you?
Our lease MOT review service has been designed for businesses, or individuals who have been given a lease to sign. If you are negotiating terms (heads of terms) or if there are other matters that need to be discussed please contact us so we can advise on the best route forward.
A lease MOT is also ideal for tenants who want a view of the agreed obligations after a lease has been completed.
Landlords, especially those with large portfolios or who are looking to exit, may find the lease MOT a useful audit tool to assess whether the leases they use are acceptable.
It is suitable for leases of all commercial property types, and we aim to provide the written lease report within one week of receiving the draft lease.
