It can be annoying and frustrating, but sometimes a commercial tenant has to end their lease early. Maybe they need to move to bigger premises, or smaller ones. Terminating a lease can be difficult and stressful, but using us as a commercial lease solicitor in London can help take the stress out of it. We can shoulder that stress for you.
A lease is a legally binding contract so it makes sense to use the law correctly to end it, so that nothing comes back to bite you in the long-term. Let’s look at some ways we can help you.
Start with the most suitable lease
Getting out of a lease early is much easier if you create ways to do so in the lease right from the beginning. As a commercial lease solicitor in London, Saracens Solicitors has seen it all. We can help you put in accurate legal terminology what you need from the lease, including terminating it, so that you know the process will be smoother, should the need to leave arise.
We can go through the legal jargon of the lease with you so that you understand what all the wording means, and what the implications of them are. As we go through, we can also suggest ways to adjust the lease to make it more to your suiting and then negotiate these changes with the other party’s solicitor. This can make a huge difference should you need to terminate your lease.
How to know if the contract has been breached
Some things are obvious. If someone is not paying their rent, they are in breach of contract, or if they have damaged the property. Some other breaches may need us to help you look over the contract to find the particular clause(s) they relate to. This is a particularly good idea if you are in dispute about the breach. We can interpret the law, and with our knowledge and understanding of precedents, we can help make sure any decisions are in your favour. If you are in dispute or would like a general review of your lease, bring us in as your commercial lease solicitor in London and let us deal with the case, rather than engaging with the other party when emotions are running high.
