Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, our team of lease consultancy specialists are on hand to help you. Gerald Eve has an intricate knowledge of case law and legal procedure, and can offer specific advice and solutions to what can often be difficult negotiations.

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 (inside or outside the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954), renegotiating the terms of the existing lease or advising the parties on the approach to a break option. In any case, a whole host of potential problems can arise, and finding a lease consultancy specialist who can identify the correct strategy to follow is essential in securing the most favourable outcome.

We commit to achieving the right results through our commercially focussed approach. We fully understand that occupiers, or those with portfolios running from millions of square feet to single properties, need certainty on occupational costs.

We also understand how it is to secure flexibility or long term stability on lease terms, in order to optimise business performance and remain aligned with the client’s overall property strategy.

Our lease consultancy services include:

  • rent reviews
  • lease renewals (inside or outside the L&T Act 1954)
  • lease regears
  • break option advice
  • rental valuations
  • acting as an expert witness in rental valuation or lease renewal
  • lease exit strategy.

Delivering timely negotiations of lease renewals or restructuring is essential. Whether a single property or large portfolio we understand the need to plan ahead in budgeting for fixed costs
