Expert Advice on Commercial Leases for Clients in Glasgow and the West of Scotland

If you are entering into a commercial lease, having the right legal support and guidance is essential. Your commercial lease is a contract between you and your landlord or tenant, setting out the rights, responsibilities and obligations of both parties.

Commercial and business leases differ substantially from residential leases, particularly in how the courts treat them. The parties in a residential lease are expected to be able to negotiate terms more effectively than those signing a commercial lease.

In a legal context, commercial leases are viewed as contracts, entered into by experienced business people and, as a consequence, there are fewer statutory protections for commercial landlords and tenants if problems arise.

As such, whether you are using business premises as a landlord or a tenant, seeking advice from a team of experienced commercial lease solicitors from the outset is essential.

We can provide specialist advice on matters including:

  • Rent and rent reviews
  • Service charges
  • Landlord consent and other forms of third-party permissions
  • Assignation and sub-letting
  • Break clauses
  • Lease renewals
  • Forfeiture
  • Responsibility for repairs
  • Personal guarantees
  • Recovery of possession
  • Insurance
  • New build arrangements
  • Licencing
