Our commercial property solicitors, based at our head office in Leicester city centre are specialists in dealing with commercial leases for both Landlords and Tenants.
On average, commercial property leases take 6-8 weeks inclusive from the date the draft lease is prepared, to completion of the lease.
For Landlords, you can expect to pay for official copies of the register of title to the property and our costs for dealing with the lease on your behalf. These costs will depend on the length of the term of the lease and how much rent will be paid each year.
You may decide that property searches are required, which cost approximately £450+VAT. If the lease requires registering at the Land Registry, the Registry charges a fee for this (approximately £40, but this depends upon the annual rent).
For higher value rents there may also be a liability for Stamp Duty Land Tax, but if this is the case we would advise you of this at the outset.
