Retail Lease Renewals and Expert Witness Work including PACT

Acting for landlords and tenants alike, we are on hand to advise on all aspects of the retail lease renewal process.

With the average length of a commercial lease decreasing over the last 15 years, lease renewals have become ever more commonplace.

We advise within the context of the 1954 Landlord and Tenant Act, which provides the regulatory framework governing the renewals process.

We act for a wide range of landlords and national multiple retailers, including:




Marks & Spencer 


Sue Ryder 


British Land 



MidCounties Co-op 

Telereal Trillium 



Booker Retail Partners 

We have an integrated and comprehensive service that covers:

  • Budgeting and tactics advice in advance of lease expiry.
  • Liaison with solicitors in the serving of termination notices and advice on compliance with the legal process, including the lodging of interim rent applications.
  • Assessment of suitable rent and all aspects of terms to comprise the new lease document.
  • In the event of non-agreement, providing advice in connection with court proceedings and evidence, as well as acting as expert witness.
  • Presenting cases to RICS appointed property professionals, when dispute resolution is by way of professional arbitration on court terms (PACT).
