Do I need a lawyer when taking a lease on commercial premises?

No. A lawyer may not be necessary, however you should consider the risks of entering into a legally binding contract without a thorough appraisal of its implications. Failing to spot something could be disastrous.

How long will it take to complete my lease?

Timeframes vary according to individual lessor/lessee but a straightforward lease could be completed in 6-8 weeks. Please contact us for a free initial consultation.

Can I use these premises for………….?

Usage clauses and planning issues are common queries – it is wise to thoroughly investigate the legality of your specific intended use to ensure it is permitted.
