Bishop & Sewell

Commercial leases create significant obligations for landlords, tenants and guarantors, and as such, all parties should ensure that they safeguard their positions.

We regularly advise both landlord and tenant clients on lease issues relating to all types of premises ranging single office or shop units, properties in shopping centres through to large industrial or retail parks. We also advise on commercial lease renewals.

Our team of dedicated lawyers can help you throughout the process: providing strategic advice before heads of terms are agreed, advice on the impact of SDLT and vat might have on the transaction contemplated through to all necessary post-completion work..

Flagging up any issues at the beginning of the transaction can help avoid unexpected later surprises, which can lead to considerable savings in the long run, and also helps ensure you obtain the best deals commercially available.
