Commercial Rent Reviews

Rent reviews ensure that commercial property rent is fair and aligned with market value. When conducting or advising a client on a rent review, it's more than just the relevant market evidence that needs careful consideration. In determining how best to respond to a Rent Review Notice or the level of rent to be included within a Trigger Notice, other factors also require attention. The lease, particularly the rent review clause, may contain important wording not only establishing how the review should be conducted, but how the property in question should be valued. Our chartered valuation surveyors specialise in commercial rent reviews and can act successfully on behalf of tenants or landlords.

Lease Renewal

When a lease nears its end, both landlords and tenants have the chance to renegotiate the terms of their agreement. To ensure a smooth process, seeking advice from a qualified professional well before expiry is crucial. Our experts have an in-depth understanding of the intricacies involved, including market trends, rental evidence, legal obligations, and the pitfalls associated with notices and timescales. Hellier Langston's specialist lease advisory team can deal with more than just renewals. We can also assist with lease regears and restructures, allowing landlords and tenants to adjust their existing agreements as needed. Whether you're a landlord or a tenant looking to initiate a lease renewal and renegotiate terms, our team is here to guide you through the process.
