‘Rent’ as defined in a commercial property lease can often include things such as insurance premiums, service and management charges, and other items relating to a tenant’s occupation of a commercial property.
Sometimes commercial tenants do not or cannot pay the rent following the lease. It can be a common issue for landlords – especially given that rent is often the tenant’s biggest outgoing.
Often no formal action is required and the situation can be solved by opening lines of communication with the tenant. The landlord must deal with these issues correctly to ensure they get the best possible outcome.
