A business lease is a working document. It sets the rent, enables rent reviews, allocates responsibility for repair and maintenance and specifies the use to which the premise may be put, all within a complex legal framework, and as the essential document of estate management, it must be easily understood by non lawyers. However, it is inevitable that issues which require a technical understanding of the law relating to landlords and tenants will arise. The purpose of this Report is to highlight areas where technical issues might lead to practical difficulties, and to give clear guidance to help those involved in property management avoid the pitfalls.
Written in a clear, concise and easy-to-understand format, Malcolm Dowden presents an invaluable set of explanations and answers for all those having to deal with a business lease.
