For occupiers and potential occupiers as well as landlords of commercial property the completion of a lease commitment should not be achieved without certainty of the obligations that the document contains.
Obtaining advice prior to completion and ideally from an early or the initial stage is the most cost effective method of ensuring the obligations are understood.
For small or new companies in particular, a lease or purchase of premises is a large commitment. Property matters are often overlooked or advice deemed to be uneconomic to obtain when other more pressing issues affect the cashflow.
Often a high level or total reliance is placed upon the provider of the legal services in the transaction to protect your interests.
In that case ask yourself -
Has my adviser visited the premises?
The assessment of commercial property is all about getting the right blance between the content of the lease and the practical and financial aspects of occupation.
Send an enquiry by email email@example.com with an indication of the type (retail / office / industrial / other) of property you are, or wish to be involved with, and the general location and issues (eg rent / acquisition / repairs / rates etc etc) and FBP will respond with details and a proposal without obligation.
