It’s understandable that your business can be a big source of pride. Your commercial premises should reflect the pride you have in your business. This could involve you wanting to make some improvements to your premises.
To do this you have to have your landlord’s consent. Your landlord will usually ask you to enter into a licence for alterations which is basically a written permission for the work you want to carry out. This is where you could use the help of a commercial lease solicitor in London.
Of course, you’ll want everything to run smoothly to avoid any disturbance to your business. Here at Saracens Solicitors in the west end of London, we can help you liaise with surveyors to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible.
Help for both sides
Saracens Solicitors have helped both tenants and landlords on applications for consent. For landlords, it’s important to consider the value of their property and if the changes the tenant wishes to make will affect that value.
Landlords will also need to keep the structure of the property in mind. Our liaison with surveyors will make sure that the agreed specifications are precise and accurate in the written agreement.
With the help of your commercial lease solicitor in London, the agreement can be a big benefit for both parties. For the tenant, if the changes are made according to the specifications, it protects the tenant against any future landlord grievances concerning the changes.
If any works contravene the agreement, the licence provides the landlord with recourse against the tenant.
The landlord remains in control
The licence has to allow for a certain degree of control to be maintained by the landlord. It also needs to allow for a certain amount of flexibility to be allowed for the tenant.
As your commercial lease solicitor in London we understand the needs and wishes of both parties and will work to come to an agreement that keeps both parties happy, maintaining the crucial tenant-landlord relationship.
Keeping a good relationship between landlords and tenants is extremely important when considering commercial leases as the landlord would prefer a long-term tenant and the tenant needs stability to carry out their business successfully.
