Whether you’re a landlord or a tenant, it’s always a major investment decision when leasing out your premises. Unfortunately, what many people don’t understand is how complex a commercial lease can be and how it can be packed with potential problems. In fact, a commercial lease has many far-reaching legal implications.

In recent years, legislation in this area has undergone some major changes, which has impacted the way leases for retail businesses are negotiated and drafted. Today, commercial leases are treated differently to retail leases. This is because each is covered by a set of unique rules, that are important to understand when dealing with any form of lease.

At Laymens, our experienced team can assist in the negotiation and drafting of your particular type of lease, regardless of the business you are in. It’s our role to help you understand your rights and obligations under that lease.
