Rent Reviews

Commercial leases and tenancy agreements will typically include periodic rent reviews. These have been designed to help landlords to negotiate and adjust the rental income they generate from their property, based on its current market value.

As rent reviews commonly take place every 3 to 5 years – to help landlords charge a fair rental price – it’s important to stay on top of the issue. Our commercial property surveyors have all the specialist knowledge required to advise and act on the matter; and are well-placed to help those requiring a negotiation service.

Whether it’s for the landlord or the tenant, we can help with the interpretation of any legal rent review clauses and provide an amicable conclusion to you.

In order to secure the best deal, it’s vital to have an understanding of the local commercial property market. This will put you in a much stronger position when it comes to negotiating a more favourable rent price.

We always ensure that a fair market rent for both parties is made payable at the time of a Rent Review; taking all the relevant mitigating factors into consideration. Our surveyors in Sheffield do this by sharing their knowledge surrounding the legalities of rent reviews; which enables them to show you what rights you have when it comes to negotiation.

For tenants, rental payments are likely to form their largest business overhead; whilst for landlords, they will form the key income they generate from their property.
