Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, our team of lease consultancy specialists are on hand to help you. Gerald Eve can offer specific advice and solutions to achieve the best results for you.

Matters involving property leases are more than a battle of wills between tenants and landlords. You may be negotiating a rent review, agreeing terms for a new lease, renegotiating the terms of the existing lease or considering the strategy for a break option or expiry. In any case, a whole host of potential problems can arise, and finding a lease consultancy specialist who can identify the best approach for you to follow is essential in securing the most favourable outcome.

We fully understand the needs of owners and occupiers, both those with large portfolios and single properties. We understand the importance of the balance between flexibility and long term stability on lease terms and its impact on rental value.

Our senior and experienced teams include leading practitioners, several of whom regularly accept appointments as arbitrators, independent experts and expert witnesses. Our specialist teams advise both landlords and tenants, covering offices, retail/restaurants, industrial/warehouse and alternative property sectors. Our geographical coverage includes all parts of the Great Britain.
