Lease Advice for Tenants

We understand that it can be difficult for tenants to negotiate the terms of leases with landlords. When you are looking to take a new lease of any premises, lawyers are often seen as an unnecessary and additional expense. At Ryan Property Law, we understand these concerns and therefore we offer specialist services that are designed to ensure that you are properly protected when you enter into a lease, while keeping costs down to an absolute minimum.

Involving a good lawyer at the earliest stage can actually save you money! In fact, a number of our clients have actually spent less overall (even taking legal fees into account) by being able to effectively negotiate the terms of their lease with the landlord.

We know that commercial leases are often long, complex and full of legal jargon. That’s why we have put together a free “Tenants’ Guide to Commercial Leases”, which provides tips on negotiating the terms of a lease and uses plain English on key issues such as rent-free periods, reduced rents, repair obligations, insurance, alterations and guarantees. This will help you to make sure that you get the best deal possible both in the short-term but also make sure that you keep costs down in the future, such as when the lease comes to an end or if the needs of your business change.

We offer a fixed-price “Lease Check” service, where we will look into the key legal issues relating to the lease of the property from the information available to us, meaning that you are able to make a decision on whether the terms will be acceptable to you both now and in the future. We can then make recommendations on what changes may be required in order to ensure that you get the best possible deal when you take the lease.

Please feel free to call us on 0113 236 2334 to discuss your needs or email us for a quote for our “Lease Check” service or to obtain a free copy of our “Tenants’ Guide to Commercial Leases”.
