Commercial Leases and Business Tenancies

Professional legal advice saving you time and money…

At Caunters we specialise in the drafting of business leases and tenancy agreements – we know how to protect your interests.

Similarly, if you are about to take on a commercial lease or business tenancy knowing which questions to ask and when to negotiate is vital. The fallout from signing an agreement without full knowledge of what you are entering into can have serious implications for you and your business.

Whatever your situation might be taking the time to get the right advice from the beginning means you are informed and protected for the duration of the contract.

Commercial leases and business tenancies are subject to the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 unless they are excluded from it.  The 1954 Act contains additional provisions that run alongside the terms of the tenancy and offer the tenant security of tenure.

At Caunters we act for commercial landlords and tenants in disputes relating to leases and tenancies. We are able to advise on the following:-

  • contents of leases
  • enforcing terms of the lease
  • preparation and service of notices
  • rent arrears
  • rent reviews
  • fortfeiture
  • surrender
  • dealing with request for new leases under the 1954 Act
