At GloverPriest, we specialise in commercial leases for landlords and tenants, and we understand that timing is an important consideration in any business transaction. The duration of completing a commercial lease can vary depending on several factors, and it is essential to take into account the complexity of the lease, negotiation process, and other legal considerations.

While we cannot provide an exact timeframe as each lease is unique, we can provide a general overview of the factors that can impact the duration:

  • Lease Negotiations: The negotiation phase plays a significant role in determining how long it takes to complete a commercial lease. This phase involves discussing and finalising various terms and conditions, such as rent, lease length, renewal options, repairs, and any specific clauses that may be relevant to the particular property or business. The negotiation process can take time as both parties work towards reaching mutually agreeable terms.
  • Legal Due Diligence: Once the lease terms are agreed upon, both parties may need to conduct legal due diligence. This process involves reviewing and verifying legal documents, property title, surveys, planning permissions, licenses, and other relevant information. The duration of the due diligence process can vary depending on the complexity of the property and any legal or regulatory issues that may arise.
  • Documentation and Contract Drafting: After the negotiation and due diligence phases, the lease documentation needs to be prepared. This includes drafting the lease agreement, reviewing and incorporating any agreed-upon amendments, and ensuring that all legal requirements are met. The time taken for this stage can depend on the complexity of the lease and the efficiency of the legal team involved.
  • Execution and Completion: Once the lease documentation is finalised, it will need to be signed by both parties. This final step may involve coordinating schedules, obtaining necessary signatures, and ensuring that all required parties are present. The time taken for execution and completion can vary depending on the availability and responsiveness of all parties involved.

Given these factors, the timeframe for completing a commercial lease can range from a few weeks to several months. It is important to recognise that each lease is unique, and the duration may vary depending on the specific circumstances. Engaging the services of a specialist commercial lease solicitor, like ourselves can help streamline the process, ensure legal compliance, and expedite the completion of the lease.
