What is a Commercial Lease?
To clarify, a commercial lease is a specifically tailored and legally binding contract between the business owner and the landlord. The terms of the lease are often negotiable with respect to rent, outgoings, the term of the lease, options to renew, fit-out periods and so on. Make sure you consider the lease terms and conditions, so they suit the unique requirements of your business.
When the lease document is signed and the lease commences, there will not be an opportunity to amend the agreement. Accordingly, any mistakes at the negotiation stage (prior to signing the lease) could severely affect your business.
Remember, there are subtle but important differences between commercial and retail leases, So, it is important to get the correct advice and guidance from a knowledgeable source.
