Rent Review and Lease Renewals
In the life of a property, rent reviews and lease renewals are infrequent occurrences so have considerable importance to both landlords seeking to maximise income and tenants seeking to minimise outgoings. Client objectives are best achieved by professional representation that is able to combine the attributes of detailed knowledge of the market with a high level expertise in Landlord and Tenant law and practice.
CFK LLP specialises in the central London office market both in letting space or acquiring for business occupiers and through these services have a comprehensive knowledge of office rental values and transaction data base. This knowledge is vital in the process of rent review or lease renewal negotiations.
However, market knowledge is not in itself enough. Rent reviews can be complex. Lease terms and rent review provisions have to be understood and interpreted having regard to legislation and case law. Disputes are often referred to arbitration and experience in the conduct of these proceedings is paramount. CFK LLP is able to offer this level of expertise to Clients seeking advice upon these issues.
Sometimes at rent review or lease renewal opportunities arise where there may be opportunities to restructure terms for the mutual benefit of the parties. CFK LLP place considerable importance in identifying such situations and are experienced in achieving the best solutions for their clients.
