Tenant And Landlord Lease Obligations

Commercial Tenant’s Lease Obligations

The lease oblilgations of a commercial tenant are found in the lease agreement. Verbal agreements and handshakes don’t stand in the court of law. Whatever has been agreed between the tenant and landlord, must be included in the lease agreeement. A commercial lease includes provisions that should cover all aspects of the leasing of the property. Responsibility for damages to the property should be stated in the agreement, as part of the landlord and tenant’s obligations.

Listing Obligations

Obligations should be listed in the lease agreement. What can be included in the obligations section? Some of the possible obligations would be insurance, repairs and maintenance payments. The tenant and landlord will be allocated obligations and once the lease is signed, the contents cannot be changed, unless both parties agree to it. Clauses must be compliant with the Landlord & Tenant Act 1985.

Termination Or Eviction Notice

Both the landlord and tenant are obligated to give notice of early lease termination. It the tenant wants to terminate the lease early, the landlord must be notified in advance. In the same way, the landlord must give the tenant reasonable notice to take possession of the property. Early termination may be possible but if the parties are not in agreement, a solicitor can review the lease and determine whether break clause and negotiation are possible.

Rolling Break

A lease with a rolling break clause allows the tenant to end the lease term at any time. Landlords can offer more flexibility, allowing tenants to lease with security of tenure. This gives tenants more security, knowing they can’t be easily evicted or have their lease terminated without good cause. Tenants have obligations they need to comply with, when leasing a property. These obligations depend on what’s in the lease. If you are a commercial tenant or landlord, please get in touch for an informal chat.
