Once you've signed your lease and got settled in, it can be easy to forget about. But you need to make sure you have certain things covered before you can really sit back.

You need to think to the future. When does your lease end? Will you want to stay past that date? If so, how easy will your lease be to renew? Will it be on terms that are favourable for you?

If you and your landlord have different ideas about leasing in the future, disputes can easily arise.

If you need to leave the lease early, you may need to take certain measures prior to signing the contract for example, a break clause.

A break clause gives you the right to bring a lease to an end prematurely. Both you and your landlord have to negotiate and agree on the conditions of early termination.

Without a break clause, your early departure from the lease was not agreed so instead you would have to surrender the lease if the Landlord will not let you go. If you don’t take care prior to signing a lease you could lose out financially.

There are numerous other issues that can come up whether you’re a tenant or landlord of a commercial property.

Bendles help with the following and more:

  • Failure to pay rent, service charge or additional ground rent
  • Disputes over who has to carry out or pay for repairs
  • Increases in rent, service charge or additional ground rent
  • Break rights and surrenders
  • Assignments, sublets and changes in use
  • Forfeiture
  • Dilapidations
