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.
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

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

What our Clients say
A massive thanks to you and Ana for drawing up Zanshin Film’s Terms and Conditions. You both listened carefully to, and completely understood a few very industry specific requirements that I had, and these have been integrated into the legal-speak !
I feel very confident going into new jobs now, knowing that I have a watertight, and if needed, enforceable set of Terms and Conditions.
Zanshn Films LTD
Excellent team! We first used AMD 13 years ago to supply our business (Studio 2, Exhibition and Display Graphics) with a shareholders agreement and T&Cs. Their advice then was invaluable and they continue to be a great support to our growing business.30/01/2019
We received an excellent and efficient service from start to finish. We couldn’t fault the highly professional support and always felt we knew exactly what was going on, and what we needed to do next. Couldn’t be faulted.20/02/2019
