• Leasing business premises?
  • Negotiating a lease?
  • Buying a business in leased premises?

The strength of a business owner’s lease can have a significant impact on the success and value of a business. This is particularly the case when the business is reliant on its location to win customers.

There are many important factors when considering a lease. In particular: Can the premises be used for the business? Is the length of the lease sufficient? Are payments required under the lease sustainable? Are fit-out/refurbishment requirements in line with your business plan? Does the lease provide for sufficient signage and parking?
