For both commercial landlords and commercial tenants, we understand that you want the leasing process to be as straight forward as possible, allowing you to focus on running your business. At AMD we specialise in helping to establish and maintain positive relationships between landlords and tenants, whilst also offering support when issues do arise to help achieve a swift resolution.

 

LANDLORDS

Our team of commercial property solicitors have a wealth of experience working with landlords to make the process of leasing their properties as simple and as fast as possible. We work with client portfolios including restaurants, takeaways, pubs, retail shops (from small high street premises to Cabot Circus), clubs, hotels, office blocks, doctor’s surgeries, warehouses and much more.

We also act for our London clients who have a presence in Bristol, the City and Nationwide.

 

WE CAN HELP WITH A WHOLE RANGE OF ISSUES INCLUDING:
  • Negotiating Heads of Agreement
  • Preparation of leases and sub-leases
  • Advising on tenant requests for assignment of lease
  • Advising in relation to non-payment of rent or other breaches of covenant
  • Repossession of your premises
  • Dilapidation issues
  • Landlord’s consents/ licences

COMMERCIAL TENANTS 

For commercial tenants, having a fair and clear lease in place is imperative to business planning, particularly if this is a first experience of leasing commercial premises.

We are versed in negotiating lease terms on your behalf and ensuring you are fully informed of your obligations as Tenant. For example, your ability to dispose of a lease, to make any alterations to the internal demise and the extent of your repairing and decorating obligations.

If problems do arise during the term of your lease, having expert advice on hand from our specialist property lawyers means you will not be drawn away from running your business – it is our job to minimise any business disruption arising from a dispute on the lease terms.

 

WE HELP A WIDE RANGE OF BUSINESSES WITH THEIR LEASES, INCLUDING:   
  • Negotiating Heads of Terms
  • Granting or renewing commercial leases
  • Assigning, sub-letting and sharing occupation
  • Advising on break clauses included in the lease
  • Advising on the Landlord’s security requirements such as rent deposits and personal guarantees
  • Advising on the Security of Tenure provisions and the Tenant’s right to request a new lease
  • Dilapidation issues

What our Clients say

We used Anna at AMD to undertake a couple of trademark searches and registrations for us, and the service was faultless from beginning to end. Really helpful advice, clear explanations, good communication throughout, and a successful outcome. Highly recommended!

“Extremely easy to work with” – I instructed Grant McCall of the Commercial Team to help me ‘formalise’ a Partnership Agreement.

I corresponded both with him as well as a member of his team, and it was very straight forward. More than likely will use the Firm again. Firmly recommended.
