How we can help
Before a landlord carries out work on a building but intends to grant a new lease, a document called a lease agreement is required. The agreement is conditional on the landlord obtaining planning permission for the landlord’s works. The tenant is allowed early access to the property to carry out fitting out works after completion of the landlord’s works but before completion of the lease. We are here to help with your lease agreement regardless of the size of the scheme or complexity of the agreement. and we will work with you to make sure everything goes to plan.
Friendly yet direct, our team is passionate about every case we take on, and we believe the entire process requires constant communication. We will, therefore, guide you through the technicalities involved, offering expert advice from start to finish.
Why legal help is important
On many commercial developments of varying size where a developer is looking to enter into a pre-let or sale of new build premises, the prospective purchaser or tenant is going to seek some form of security in order that its interests are protected. The security will need to be adequate during and post-build and once they take ownership or occupation of the building. A collateral warranty or third party rights is often the basis of the security.
In theory, as the developer and end-user have shared goals in terms of the quality of the build, its design and timescale of delivery, there should no grounds for disagreements to occur. However, this isn’t always the case and there are a number of areas where conflict can occur such as how much involvement during the construction phase the end-user is allowed, issues surrounding certificates of completion, defect rectification and the issuing of collateral warranties.
The developer can agree these terms during negotiation of the development agreement or agreement for lease, but it is crucial that any agreed obligations are reflected in the construction team documents.
Blackstone are experts in the drafting of these agreements and the full suite of construction documents.
