Moving into a new commercial premise can be overwhelming and exciting.

Before you sign your new lease, make sure you understand some of the key clauses in your lease document. They can have a big impact on your business operation.

  • Term: the length of the term, options to renew and holding over provisions.
  • Rent Review: Typically falls on the anniversary of the lease’s commencement date and can take the form of a CPI increase, a market review or a fixed percentage increase, or a combination of these regimes.
  • Outgoings: The landlord may sometimes require the tenant to pay operating expenses of the building (or outgoings) in ADDITION to the rent.
