I recently took out a lease on a building from which I hope to run my business. Unfortunately I've found a clause in the terms stating that I cannot modify the building in anyway. What should I do?

You do not want to be in a position where your business is being hampered by inability to expand or modify the building.

Most commercial Leases are restrictive in this regard. Our experienced Commercial Property Solicitors are best placed to provide expert analysis of the relevant provisions of your Lease coupled with general practical commercial advice. The solution would be an approach to the Landlord of the premises for permission to carry out any necessary works.

We are able to advise and negotiate the terms of the consent on your behalf and with our unrivalled knowledge of the local commercial property market are best placed to recommend Surveyors to assist in the preparation of drawings and specifications to support your application for consent.
