Rent Reviews & Lease Renewals

As rent can represent one of the largest outgoings for an organisation it is important to ensure it fairly reflects the true value of the premises at commencement of a lease and at review, having regard to the terms of the lease and market conditions. It is also an area where conflict can arise between a Landlord and Tenant – hence the large amount of case law that exists.

We have experience dealing with rent reviews on a wide range of commercial property. Our knowledge of the market and our understanding of case law will help the parties reach agreement by negotiation. We act for large companies as well as private individuals, and prepare reports for arbitration or expert witness determination if agreement cannot be reached.

Lease Renewals

The procedure for dealing with lease renewals is governed by the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 (Part II). The Act imposes strict timescales for service of notices and counter notices. If these are not observed they can delay a Landlord obtaining an increase in the rent and conversely result in the Tenant losing their statutory protection to claim a new lease.

We have successfully represented Landlords and Tenants of both large and small properties. It is important that Landlords and Tenants take advice as early as possible.
