Drafting and negotiating a lease might seem daunting but often the two parties involved the landlord and the tenant, together with their solicitors, want the same result; that is the completion of the lease as soon as practicable to enable the tenant to start trading and the landlord to receive the rent. In recent years the majority of the leases that are produced by landlord’s solicitors are in a standardised form and as such are easier to negotiate and or amend.
The starting point to work from is the heads of terms that have been agreed between the parties. If a a fair amount of time has been spent agreeing these, it is likely this will lead to a reduction in the time drafting and negotiating the lease.
