Landlord & Tenant

Whether you are looking to let premises as a landlord or to take a commercial tenancy it is vital for both parties to fully understand the business and legal implications as early as possible to ensure a smooth transaction and hopefully a solid and mutually beneficial ongoing relationship.

How we can help

Our advisers can assist with the preparation of clear Heads of Terms which form the basis of your agreement. We are always happy to discuss these early in the process so as to avoid problems at a later stage.

We can act for both landlords and tenants of all commercial sizes and can prepare and advise upon leases for all types of commercial property, whether industrial, general retail or residential portfolios.

For landlords it is important to establish a rental stream whilst preserving your capital investment and your future options to sell or finance your asset. For tenants it is important to ensure that you have certainty for your business, including a clear understanding of the extent of your liabilities.

Burley Geach can provide you with the necessary specialist advice to ensure that your commercial arrangements and legal obligations are clearly established and you know where you stand; all within a timeframe to suit your commercial needs.

We can also assist you with all other legal matters relating to let business premises, including:

  • Rent deposits
  • Licences to alter
