During the recent session from our ‘General Counsel Know How’ series, commercial property partner Helen Lucas and consultant Michael Whitaker led an interesting discussion on hotly contested lease terms that should be properly considered even before the landlords and tenants sign heads of terms.
Helen and Michael kicked off by discussing the key points to consider when negotiating provisions covering property alterations, reinstatement obligations and repairs. They then discussed the circumstances under which disputes can arise in relation to break clauses. Finally, they discussed common pitfalls to avoid when negotiating wording relating to service charges, rent deposits and Energy Performance Certificate ratings.
