What is a grant of lease?

commercial property lease is granted by a landlord. The lease gives a tenant exclusive possession of a property or a piece of land for a set period of time.

What are rent deposit deeds?

When a tenant takes out a lease, they pay a deposit to the landlord as security. It is not a legal requirement to draw up a rent deposit deed but it protects both the landlord and the tenant.

Grant of Lease FAQs

Lease assignment is transferring the legal interest of a property from one tenant to another. A tenant of a commercial lease can assign a lease to a new tenant with the landlord’s permission.

A commercial lease normally runs until the end of a lease term unless there is a ‘break clause’ within the lease that allows it to end earlier. A break clause specifies a date on which a lease can be broken without either party paying a penalty.

A tenant can also end a commercial property lease early if the landlord agrees or the lease is assigned to another tenant.

A landlord can end a lease early through a break clause or through a ‘forfeiture clause’. A forfeiture clause gives the landlord the right to end a lease early if service charge or rent is not paid. However, this could be challenged by the tenant.
