During the course of a commercial property lease, there might be an opportunity to end (or ‘break’) the lease early or to review the amount of rent the tenant pays the landlord as part of the lease agreement.
Generally those ‘break rights’ when certain things have been done (e.g. payments made) or not done (e.g. no breaches of the lease).
We can provide advice to either a landlord or tenant on what steps are required to bring a lease to an end in accordance with the terms of the lease.
On rent reviews we work closely with commercial property surveyors to ensure the correct rent is paid, advising on the rent review clauses in the lease, and recovering any backdated rent.
