Lawyers for the Grant of New Commercial Property Lease


A Commercial Lease is the agreement between a landlord and property user about the user’s exclusive occupancy of commercial premises.

The rental documents themselves are usually  long and complex and give rise to related legal issues we will have to handle for you, that might include:

  1. Dealing with security (rent deposits or personal guarantees)
  2. Examining title
  3. Researching rates and other costs
  4. Consideration of the condition of the property and liabilities that result
  5. Registration
  6. Certain property Taxes

We have an experienced Commercial Property team who are specialists in leases who deal with all of the above.

Please see our Commercial Property Checklist for more details.

Money Matters

Your supplier is SRA-regulated Mounteney Solicitors, that charges VAT some customers may be able to reclaim

Product excludes any related contract/agreement/Heads of Terms

£300 Supplement if S.D.L.T. is payable

As these are products for businesses, prices are stated excluding applicable VAT;

Renewal lease by reference to existing lease £  800
New lease, less than 3 yrs £  1,100
New lease, more than 3 yrs, less than 7 yrs £1,450
New lease more than 7 yrs (inc. registration) + Land Reg. Fee £1,800

Our fee applies regardless of how much work we actually do. In some cases this may mean we’ll get relatively better paid for doing less work than in other cases, in which the fixed fee will barely cover our costs. This is simply the nature of the mutual gamble between a solicitor and their client when they fix a fee.

More detail of all these matters will be outlined in our retainer letter which you will be able to review before you engage us, after pressing the “Buy” button on the website.
