Lease Renewals for Tenants
Lease renewals provide the perfect opportunity for you to negotiate your rental payments. As with any contract end date, the most optimal time for negotiation is ahead of signing a new agreement and Eddisons often advise tenants at this stage not just in areas relating to cost but also on potential benefits and pitfalls to look out for. For example, a member of our team could help you secure a short-term rent free period or a lump sum incentive.
Lease renewal is often a point in time that landlords will look to adjust your rent charge, we can take a look at any proposed changes and confirm whether the proposal is reasonable and just in the current market or whether there would be room for negotiation and the grounds on which to do that. It is also an opportunity to review contract clauses that no longer suit you as the tenant or make provisions within the lease that will make your future expansion, or even exit, a smoother process.
However, each lease contract can be different and it's the terms and conditions within it which govern your rights and flexibility when it comes to renewal time.
If you're looking to terminate your lease early, you will need a thorough understanding of your break clause rights which will be documented in your lease. We can help in this regard with discussions and negotiations with your landlord; something our team has vast experience in. We can identify any potential issues and highlight changes that can be made to ensure your lease is best suited for your needs and that your interests are protected.
