For both commercial landlords and commercial tenants, we understand that you want the leasing process to be as straight forward as possible, allowing you to focus on running your business. At AMD we specialise in helping to establish and maintain positive relationships between landlords and tenants, whilst also offering support when issues do arise to help achieve a swift resolution.
Our team of commercial property solicitors have a wealth of experience working with landlords to make the process of leasing their properties as simple and as fast as possible. We work with client portfolios including restaurants, takeaways, pubs, retail shops (from small high street premises to Cabot Circus), clubs, hotels, office blocks, doctor’s surgeries, warehouses and much more.
We also act for our London clients who have a presence in Bristol, the City and Nationwide.
For commercial tenants, having a fair and clear lease in place is imperative to business planning, particularly if this is a first experience of leasing commercial premises.
We are versed in negotiating lease terms on your behalf and ensuring you are fully informed of your obligations as Tenant. For example, your ability to dispose of a lease, to make any alterations to the internal demise and the extent of your repairing and decorating obligations.
If problems do arise during the term of your lease, having expert advice on hand from our specialist property lawyers means you will not be drawn away from running your business - it is our job to minimise any business disruption arising from a dispute on the lease terms.
Our expert commercial lawyers are based in four offices across Bristol and can also arrange appointments at your premises if you prefer. We work with businesses at all levels, from local start-ups to established companies operating nationwide, and have the knowledge and experience to keep your business running smoothly.
To find out more or to book an appointment call AMD today on 0117 973 3989 and ask to speak to a member of our commercial law team. Alternatively, please feel free to email the head of our commercial department, Tony Moore.
John Todd of AMD Solicitors looks at Assured Shorthold Tenancies in the wake of the Deregulation Act 2015
In the 1960s, 70s, even 80s, tenants had started to acquire a considerable degree of security of tenure. The situation was such that prospective landlords would not let their (empty) premises for fear that they would never regain possession of them.
