If you need to renew the lease with the landlord of the property your business occupies, a legal service provider is well placed to handle documentation and agree tenancy terms on your behalf. Here is some basic guidance to inform your choice of legal expert.
Lease renewal and extension procedures are typically started by the party leasing the property. If you are a tenant wishing to extend your lease, you will require a legal service provider to handle proceedings in conjunction with the landlord’s legal representative.
You may request a lease extension at any time during the leasehold period. The maximum extension that can be applied for by a tenant is 90 years on a flat and 50 years on a house. There is no minimum leasehold extension period.
A legal service provider appointed as mediator will liaise with both parties in order to try and ensure that the extension of a lease is completed swiftly and efficiently. They will present terms to both the tenant and landlord, as well as drafting and amending documentation.
Choosing a legal expert to handle the extension of a lease is an important decision. You may wish to consider a range of factors including the size, cost, reputation and location of a firm when making a decision.
