A lease is a legally binding contract that gives you certain rights to a property for a set term.
You should never sign a lease without understanding all of its terms and conditions. If you don't understand what you are agreeing to, you could experience serious financial and legal problems.
We recommend you ask your solicitor to explain each clause of the lease to you. Your solicitor can also help you to negotiate lease terms to suit your business.
This guide will help you to understand what it means to lease business premises, and the best way to go about it.
