Landlord and Tenant Law
Commercial property Leases are an extremely complex area of law. A Landlord must consider whether he wishes to make a long or a short term Lease. This decision may involve granting the Tenant certain rights. In addition, longer term Commercial Leases are subject to extremely important VAT considerations. Advice must be taken on this prior to making the letting.
At Sinnott Solicitors we have substantial experience in Commercial Leases acting for both Landlords and Tenants whether it concerns shopping centres, shop units, or industrial units. If you are contemplating leasing a property either as Landlord or Tenant, or purchasing a property which you intend to rent on a commercial basis please contact us at an early stage. Areas of expertise include:
- Negotiating new leases
- Lease renewals
