Business Leases

A tenancy or lease exists where someone lets premises to another for a term in return for a rent. The term of the letting is usually a number of years.

The expression “business lease” is commonly used to refer to a tenancy of premises used for the purposes of running some kind of business. The premises may be a building, part of a building, or even open land, used for example as a temporary car park.   Our lawyers have many years of experience in working for Landlords and Tenants with a variety of commercial leases.  It might be a long or particularly complicated lease or a short lease or at a low rent.
