What is a Commercial Property Lease?

A commercial lease is a legal contract that governs the relationship between landlords and tenants. It’s a legally binding contract specifying the conditions under which the landlord accepts to let out a property to be used by the tenants.

Every commercial lease is unique, and our solicitors can work with you to customise the lease agreement to meet your specific needs. This may include negotiating terms such as rent, security deposit, maintenance and repair obligations, building insurance requirements and other key provisions.
