Most business owners have a lease for their business premises. Others might be landlords themselves.

A lease is an important document which governs the relationship between the landlord and the business owner. It sets out the rent which needs to be paid, how the rent will be reviewed each year, how long the lease will be in place and who is responsible for doing what.

Given that leases are usually in place for a long time and the terms of the lease can have an impact on the overall success of your business, it is essential to make sure that the terms of the lease are suitable for your existing business and your future business plans.

If you’re a landlord, you need to make sure that your lease protects your asset and achieves the outcomes that you are looking for.
