Lease Advisory

Our extensive experience as an independent consultancy – working both sides of the tenant/landlord divide – allows us to provide a truly comprehensive bespoke service for clients of all sizes.

We advise freeholders, leaseholders, landlords and business occupiers on the complete range of leasing, rent and service charge issues.

We have broad experience in providing advice and conducting negotiations on behalf of clients on lease renewals, rent reviews, lease surrenders, lease re-gears/restructures and service charge disputes across all commercial property types.

As an independent consultancy, we inform our clients – landlord or tenant, with honest and accurate advice.  We are able to negotiate the best terms possible by having a detailed understanding of the London markets through close collaboration across our own business disciplines.

Our bespoke service and high-level of market intelligence enables us to better inform client decision-making, adding value to their businesses.

Our services include:

Lease Renewals & Restructures

Our experienced, professionally qualified surveyors provide strategic advice and negotiate on the statutory framework governing most lease renewals.

Break options in leases provide both tenants and landlords with an opportunity to restructure their lease to more favourable or appropriate terms.  We have extensive experience in acting for both landlords and tenants.

Rent Reviews

The current market demands expert rent review advice to minimise risk and maximise return – both for landlords and tenants.

Our service specialises in navigating the complex negotiations now commonplace in the market, securing the best results for our clients.

We have experience in third party dispute resolution – for example Arbitration and Independent Expert submissions, and our surveyors are able to provide Expert Witness advice in rental valuation disputes.

Our team is able to offer a corporate advisory role for occupiers on all aspects of their leasing arrangements, from rent reviews and service charges through to business rates and dilapidations.
