Some of our
frequently asked questions

we are on hand to answer any questions you may have but here are some common questions that may help you to decide how to proceed.

What is a commercial lease?

This is a formal agreement between landlord and tenant. The lease will set out the terms on which the tenant is permitted to occupy the business premises, including the term, the rent payable and all other rights and obligations. It is very important to have independent legal advice on the terms of a lease.

Does a commercial lease need to be registered?

Leases over 7 years are subject to compulsory registration at the Land Registry and you would usually need a Solicitor to assist with this registration process. Shorter leases do not usually need to be registered. However we still very strongly advise that you have legal advice on any commercial lease.

What is an assignment of a lease?

This is the transfer of all rights to occupy the premises for the rest of the term from the current tenant to a third party. The consent from the landlord is usually required and there are various formalities to be completed.
