Acting for the tenant

Acting for the tenant

As your business grows, or if you just wish to change location, you will have to start considering having a physical premises for your business. This is a big step for any business, so it is vital your commercial lease is successfully negotiated.

Once you have found a property and the basic terms of letting have been negotiated, it is important to take legal advice as to the terms and obligation it contains. Failure to do so could result in severe restrictions in the future.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

A commercial lease is used by a tenant to rent space for a business while a residential lease is used by a tenant to rent a home or space to personally reside in. Commercial leases are typically viewed as contracts between knowledgeable businesspeople. Consequently, less governmental protection is available for tenants of commercial property than tenants of residential property. Because the parties are knowledgeable businesspeople, the underlying belief is that they should be able to negotiate the terms of the lease to their liking.

Oral lease agreements can be difficult to enforce. If a dispute arose, a court would have to hear evidence and decide whose version of the story to accept. If there is a written agreement, courts will generally be obligated to uphold the terms of the written agreement even if the courts don’t like them.

A commercial lease typically deals with the following:

  • the type of property being let;
  • the address of the property being let;
  • the term of the tenancy and whether the tenancy is for a fixed term or renews periodically;
  • the amount of rent payable, how often and when the rent should be paid;
  • the type of business that may be conducted on the premises;
  • ownership of any leasehold improvements; and
  • the provisions of any security/damage deposit.
