Edinburgh Commercial Legal Advice

10 Important lease considerations (the basics)

Price – how much do you have to pay and when; what’s included, can you negotiate a rent free period?

Duration – how long does the lease last and how does damage or distruction change the terms?

Use – check that you can use the property for your intended purpose, and still diversify the business.

Rates – do you know how much you will pay and the exemptions available?

Repairs & Insurance – is the tenant or landlord responsible for this, what about the common parts?

Rent Review – is there one and what might this cost, will your improvements cause the rent to increase?

Survey – consider instructing one to prevent future costs, what happens if defects are found?

Break Clause – is there flexibility for you if you wish to end the lease early?

Termination – how does the lease end and are you entitled to a new lease?

Sublet – can you sublet all or any of the space should you wish to?

Leases and the Scots Common Law

In the absence of regulations Scottish landlord and tenant obligations are primarily regulated by what the lease or Contract says rather than by any Act of Parliament. The Landlord and Tenant legislation applying in England does not apply in Scotland and as such the detail within the Contract or Lease is vital.

If a tenant has carried out improvements and or alterations to the property, in the absence of provision in the leases, there will be no right to compensation. This may also have an effect on the rent review as the value of the subjects has increased, unless stipulated that improvements by the tenant do not count towards the review value.

The landlord will normally seek to have the option either to have the property reinstated or left with such additions without any compensation being due. The Scottish courts look at the precise terms of the lease or contract and normally interpret these terms in a strict fashion.

Due to the nature or contract law (and in particular the use of common law) in Scotland there is little legislation in Scotland to override the terms of the lease. The Common Law tends to underpin a general pro-tenant bias in some cases. This really only becomes an issue when a commercial lease has been poorly drafted and is unclear. The tenant’s repairing obligation is a good example – in the absence of express wording in a commercial lease, the tenant will have only limited liability to repair of premises.

There is little statutory protection in Scots law no for occupation: tenants of commercial property in Scotland have extremely limited protection so again the details within the lease or contract is vital There is NO over arching principle of reasonableness built into Scottish leases. Landlords generally do not need to act reasonably unless the lease or contract specifically requires them to do so.

At the end date of the lease: although a lease in Scotland will specify an end date, it will usually only end on that date if a written notice has been given (under the terms of the lease) by either the landlord or the tenant to avoid the lease continuing automatically to remain in force usually on a year to year basis.
