When you believe you have found the right premises for your business the letting agent will provide to you a letter of offer or intention, for you to sign. Do not sign or pay any deposit unless the offer clearly states that it is subject to a solicitor’s approval of the lease with a full refund of the deposit if the lease does not go ahead.
A hassle-free lease contains all relevant terms and conditions and clearly identifies all your rights and responsibilities. Leases for commercial premises are usually prepared by the owner’s solicitor. Legal costs for preparing a retail shop lease are paid by the landlord. In all other cases they are paid by the tenant. So, if you intend to lease premises for a business it is important that you and your solicitor carefully check and agree on the details before you sign.
