Commercial Leases & Licences

Understanding the legal nuances of Leases and Licences is fundamental for Landlords and Commercial Tenants.  It is essential that you have clarity on your legal rights and obligations.  The Landlord & Tenant legal framework is complex, so it is important that your contractual documentation is drafted and reviewed by experts and that you have somewhere to go with ad hoc questions along the way.

Our team of experienced Real Estate solicitors have a deep understanding of the complex legal issues that need navigating when negotiating or advising on Leases and Licences.  We can provide you with the guidance and support you need to navigate issues as they arise.

We regularly act for Prime Central London residential and commercial Landlords and commercial Tenants.  Our client base includes substantial real estate Funds, sophisticated Landlords with large property portfolios, Developers and Commercial Tenants including retail, restaurant and leisure chains.
