Lease Negotiation and Review
Lease negotiation is both an art and a science. We assist our clients negotiate a wide range of leasing transactions. Inclusive of new leases, agreement to lease, lease renewals, assignment of lease, sublease or surrender of lease. Utilising our industry network, market intelligence and top-tier negotiation skills we deliver you a seamless lease transaction on commercially beneficial terms.
Before Liberty Leasing was founded, we spent over a decade representing major national Landlords and negotiated thousands of leasing transactions. This experience provides us with an unparalleled insight into what we can achieve during a lease negotiation.
Engaging an independent lease negotiator also protects your relationship with your Landlord, which is intrinsically valuable. It ensures the transaction is kept at an arms-length – free of tension and debate.
There is also an issue of power imbalances. Business owners, particularly owners of small businesses, can feel pressured to accept a Landlord’s position in order to build or maintain the relationship. This doesn’t result in a fair deal. Let us restore the balance of power.
You can protect your business by ensuring that you know your rights and responsibilities under your lease, a document which can be overwhelming lengthily and complex. We carry out a comprehensive review of your agreement for lease and /or lease and prepare a critical lease summary, which is instrumental in effective lease management during the term. Our summary sets out key obligations and timeframes such as option dates, maintenance obligations, insurance requirements and restrictions surrounding change of control. Being well-informed on those rights and responsibilities is basic risk management and vital to your business success.
