What is a commercial property lease?

A commercial lease is a legally binding agreement between a landlord and a tenant for the rental of commercial property. It outlines the terms and conditions of the lease, including rent, lease duration, maintenance responsibilities, and other important provisions.

10 key points of a commercial lease that landlords and tenants should understand

A commercial lease is a legally binding contract between a landlord and a tenant for the rental of commercial property in the UK. Both parties should thoroughly understand the terms and conditions to avoid disputes and ensure a smooth landlord-tenant relationship.

Here are key points that landlords and tenants should consider in a commercial lease in the UK:

  1. Term of Lease
  2. Rent and Rent Reviews
  3. Use of the Property
  4. Improvements and Alterations
  5. Maintenance and Repairs
  6. Utilities and Operating Expenses
  7. Insurance
  8. Break Clauses
  9. Default and Termination
  10. Renewal Options

Term of Lease

This specifies the duration of the lease (including the start and end dates), whether it's a fixed term or a periodic tenancy.

Rent and Rent Reviews

The amount of rent, how it will be calculated, and when it is due. Commercial leases often include provisions for rent reviews at specified intervals, and the method for determining these reviews should be detailed.

Use of the Property

Defines the specific purposes for which the commercial space can be used. It may restrict certain activities or require the tenant to use the space only for a particular type of business.

Improvements and Alterations

Specifies whether the tenant is allowed to make changes to the property and who will be responsible for the costs associated with these alterations.

Maintenance and Repairs

Outlines the responsibilities of both the landlord and the tenant for maintenance and repairs of the property.

Utilities and Operating Expenses

Describes how utilities and other operating expenses (such as property taxes, insurance, and maintenance costs) will be handled.

Insurance

Typically requires the tenant to carry insurance coverage for liability and property damage.

Break Clauses

Check if the lease includes a break clause, allowing either party to terminate the lease before the expiration of the term. Understand the conditions and notice periods associated with exercising the break clause.

Default and Termination

Defines the actions that can be taken if either party fails to fulfil their obligations under the lease, including remedies and potential termination of the lease.

Renewal Options

Specifies whether the tenant has the option to renew the lease after its initial term expires.

Before entering into a commercial lease agreement, both landlords and tenants should seek legal advice to fully understand the implications of the terms and negotiate any necessary changes to meet their specific needs.

What are the types of commercial leases?

When considering leasing a commercial property, understanding the different types of commercial leases available is crucial. At Moeen & Co. Solicitors, we offer expert guidance to help you determine which type of lease best suits your needs.

Below is a list of some most common types of commercial leases in the UK:

  1. Net Lease
  2. Gross Lease
  3. Percentage Lease
  4. Full Repairing and Insuring Lease
  5. Short-term Lease

Net Lease

In a net lease, the tenant pays a lower base rent but also pays a portion of the property's operating expenses, including utilities, taxes, and insurance. There are 3 subtypes of net leases such as single net (N), double net (NN) and triple net (NNN).

Gross Lease

In contrast to a net lease, a gross lease involves the landlord paying the majority of the property's operating expenses. This type of lease typically includes a higher base rent.

Percentage Lease

Percentage leases are often used for retail properties and require the tenant to pay a base rent plus a percentage of their sales, usually between 2-5%.

Full Repairing and Insuring Lease

This type of lease places the responsibility for repairs, maintenance, and insurance solely on the tenant, who must maintain the property in good condition throughout the lease.

Short-term Lease

Short-term leases are typically less than three years and provide flexibility for both the landlord and tenant.

Our experienced commercial lease solicitors can provide tailored advice to help you determine which type of lease is most appropriate for your business needs.

What are the costs involved in a commercial property lease?

When considering leasing a commercial property, it's essential to budget accordingly for the various costs involved. At Moeen & Co. Solicitors, we will guide you through each expense to ensure that you're financially prepared. Here is a general list of expenses involved in a commercial lease.

Expense Description
Rent This is the agreed-upon amount you will pay to the landlord for the use of the property. It may also include an annual increase based on the Retail Price Index.
Service Charges These are costs associated with maintaining and running the property's common areas, such as repairs and janitorial services. Such expenses will typically be laid out in the lease agreement.
VAT VAT is payable on rent if the landlord is VAT registered.
Business Rates These are taxes, a business must pay based on the property's rateable value. This expense is usually payable to the local council and is calculated each year.
Legal Fees It's essential to have legal representation when leasing a commercial property to ensure that all terms and conditions of the lease are met. Our fixed fees allow you to budget for this expense accordingly.
