Ashton Bell Commercial
Solicitors will be pleased to assist both business landlord
and business tenants in all facets of this complex area
of the law.
The intention of a commercial lease is to impose all and
every possible liability or expense on the tenant so the
landlord gets his rent net. The terms of all business
leases can be fairly onerous, and some are extremely onerous.
The liability contracted for can be very substantial and
landlords sometimes demand that the directors of a new
venture provide personal guarantees, which can involve
the directors of a business in substantial personal liability.
Business leases tend to be at least 30 to 40 pages long
and are frequently written in Victorian style legalese.
We would be pleased to take you through the terms of a
lease and explain potential liabilities and your rights
and obligations under the lease.
It is also important that you appreciate what your liabilities
may be following termination of the lease (these can be
substantial) and also you be aware of any statutory rights
We would be very pleased to assist you in drafting new
business leases or assignment of your existing leases
to new tenants so as to give you the maximum possible
