Need to know legals for your commercial property lease

Commercial leases explained
For many businesses, the most crucial legal documents relate to the leases on properties crucial to their trading.   Get the wrong lease in place and your long term liability and therefore, risk profile, goes up considerably.

Issues often arise if parties (in particular the tenant) does not understand what they’re committing too – issues like rent reviews, dilapidations, assignment rights are all crucial to get right and to understand the implications of not doing so.

Getting a cost effective lawyer on board is a must.

I will be back to LawyerFair again for our next commercial property venture, and indeed for any area I might need legal advice."

Business Owners Love LawyerFair

"Excellent service: fast and efficient as well as personal and attuned to our needs. Presented my case on Saturday night and had, by Tuesday, been given comprehensive legal advice as well as clear step-by-step instructions as to how to proceed, empowering me to have a go at solving the situation personally. And it is not just for businesses, as mine was a personal situation. Highly recommend it!"

"How do you choose a good lawyer? I needed a Commercial Property lawyer in short order and couldn't get a name from my contacts. Andrew at LawyerFair quickly understood the quirks of my case and found a small range of firms to quote. I am in the middle of the purchase now and am confident enough to divert my attention and write this review! My lawyer has been on the ball, understanding, and at the right price. "
