Commercial lease extensions arise when a lease is due to expire.
In many cases, both landlord and tenant will wish to work towards lease extension, and this process will ideally run smoothly, although disagreements do sometimes arise. When this occurs, it is usually in the interests of both parties to take all the practical steps to resolve as swiftly as possible, in order to protect the interests of everyone involved.
Reaching An Agreement
It is advisable to begin by attempting to reach an agreement for the commercial lease extension through negotiation, however, if this is unsuccessful, the commercial property experts at Stirling Ackroyd Legal can help you.
There are several grounds upon which a landlord may refuse a commercial lease extension, for example, if they need to make use of the property in a different way. However, disputes more commonly arise when both parties intend to extend the lease, but disagree over the terms, often involving money and the amount of rent that will be payable. If no agreement is reached through negotiation, either party may begin court proceedings, which may prove to be both costly and time-consuming for everyone involved.
