Wouldn’t it be nice to have a short-cut to success? Wouldn’t it be great if building a thriving business didn’t take quite so long? While there’s no substitute for the step-by-step growth of a new enterprise, getting the right advice at the right time can cut down the learning curve.
One area in which it is possible to do this is renting business premises. While it may be tempting to cut costs and negotiate the lease yourself, expert help from a commercial lease solicitor in London gives you a fast track to success. At Saracens Solicitors, we have 13 years’ experience in negotiating commercial leases across the UK. Our advisers can put together a contract that protects your business interests in way less time than you could do alone.
One philosophy of entrepreneurial success says that it’s best for you to focus as much time and energy as you can on what you love to do, and, as much as you can afford to, outsource the rest. That way, you aren’t constantly exhausted by trying to understand fields of work that you don’t fully get or have an aptitude for. You leave this to those that do, and they will get it done in half the time, leaving you free to do what you love, which is why you went into business in the first place.
For example, did you know that, as your commercial lease solicitor in London, we don’t only negotiate the contract for you, we also carry out property searches? This is so you can be fully aware of any ongoing maintenance problems and negotiate with the landlord on how to manage them. The searches will also identify if there are environmental concerns in the local area that could affect your building, such as old coal mines or industrial waste.
We also contact the Land Registry to check that the landlord owns the title of the property and that there aren’t any easements granted over the space you are looking to acquire. This check will also reveal public access routes, and we’ll also look for active planning permission, disputes and restrictions relating to the use of your space.
