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:

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.

- Negotiating Heads of Terms
- Granting or renewing commercial leases
- Assigning, sub-letting and sharing occupation
- Advising on break clauses included in the lease

What our Clients say
AMD are excellent family solicitors – they are efficient and friendly and very helpful!08/02/2021
“AMD Solicitors recently assisted with the creation of a Will for myself. Their Private Client team were fantastic throughout the whole process. The initial meeting was able to be conducted over video call, during which they were able to answer various questions I had and advise as to the appropriate action to take. Subsequent correspondence was clear and prompt, I particularly appreciated the practical advice in relation to the witnessing of documents whilst under lockdown arrangements. I would not hesitate to recommend AMD Solicitors to others, keep up the good work!”25/02/2021
“Just completed the sale of a house using Laura Wilkinson of AMD’s Clifton Bristol branch. Laura was very responsive, succinct and delivered on what she promised. A fixed fee was agreed in advance and the invoice received reflected this. Laura is proactive in her approach and needs no chasing – unlike some other solicitors acting for other members of the sales chain. I definitely want to use Laura for all future domestic conveyancing work”01/03/2021
