Commercial leases for landlords and tenants

We’re one of the largest firms in the South West and represent a large number of tenants over a range of different sectors. With extensive experience in advising tenants, we’re the firm to call. 

Signing on the dotted line of a commercial lease can be a daunting step and Stephens Scown’s dedicated commercial property team are on hand to provide support on the following:

  • new leases
  • terms of an existing lease
  • leases coming to an end
  • exiting a current lease
  • the most effective way to structure a lease to minimise Stamp Duty Land Tax payable

As a landlord, you can rest assured that as one of the South West’s leading law firms, we have a huge amount of experience advising a large number of landlords on a diverse range of portfolios.

We will advise you throughout the entire process, providing you with the tailored support you need.

Legal support through your tenancies

We know the relationship with a tenant can be complex, and doesn’t necessarily end with them leaving the property. That’s why we’re on hand to provide you with advice throughout the term of the tenancy.

Entering into tenancy agreements

We will tailor specific commercial leases from the beginning of the tenancy to protect you and your property.

During the tenancy

We offer ongoing advice and support to landlords on:

  • lease provision
  • dealings by the tenant such as subletting and assignments
  • remedying breaches of commercial leases
  • recovering arrears of rent

The end of the tenancy agreement

We provide help on:

  • advice in relation to dilapidation claims
  • breaches of agreement
  • renewal of expired leases
