Commercial Leases

When you take on a new lease or take over an existing one, it is vital that you balance out the competing interests of the Landlord and Tenant in order to limit any restrictions to your business plans or any change in circumstances. It is also important to ensure that all the terms of a commercial lease are correct before signing it to avoid costly mistakes. Our commercial solicitors will provide you with a bespoke service and have worked with many types of commercial businesses including offices, hotels, public houses, cafes, restaurants, takeaways, retail shops and industrial units. To speak to us about a commercial lease, get in touch today by calling 0161 929 0121, or complete our online enquiry form and we will get back to you.
