Every year, we advise on a high number of rent reviews, lease renewals and lease restructures. Our network of offices, and our involvement in both the development and agency transactional sectors, provide us with unrivalled market knowledge to negotiate the very best terms for clients.
Commercial leases within England and Wales comprise of those which are protected by the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 Part II and those which are excluded. A protected lease
entitles the Tenant to the right to a new lease on the prescribed requirements within the Act. The existing lease can only be brought to an end by the service of the correct Notices which allows for negotiation on the new rent and terms within specific timescales. If no agreement is reached then the disputed elements are determined by the Court. A lease that is excluded from the Act does not benefit from Security of Tenure and therefore the Tenant does not have a right to a new lease.
Curchod & Co have an experienced team of Surveyors and can offer Lease Renewal advice to both Landlords and Tenants. To ensure the best possible outcome we recommend that advice is sought early and if you would like to discuss an upcoming lease renewal please contact one of our experienced team.
Commercial property rent reviews require a detailed understanding of commercial leases, the rent review procedure and the local commercial property market. Our experienced Surveyors can assist and represent you through the rental negotiations.
Whilst negotiated settlements are desirable, it is crucial to ascertain the best outcome for the Client, but not at any cost. Our robust approach to rent review negotiations is backed by our ability to act effectively in third party proceedings where as a result of not agreeing the review by negotiation, it is determined through arbitration or independent expert.
