Rent

A business lease is a legally binding contract between the legal owner (landlord) and the occupier (tenant). Leases may contain a provision allowing either party to initiate a rent review. The rules by which the rent can be changed should be clear and understandable. The basis of a rent review should be the market rent unless clearly stated otherwise. If any increases/decreases are fixed to an index the basis should be a published, independent and authoritative source.

If there is a market rent provision, it should specifically exclude (or disregard) any improvements the tenant makes (other than as part of an explicit obligation) or any value arising from the tenants business. There should be provisions in the event of any disagreements which will be referred to an independent expert or arbitrator to determine.

 

Do your research

Parties should understand the basis on which the rent can be changed, that it can go up or down, is fixed for a longer/shorter period, is linked to Consumer Price Index (CPI) or RPI. Both parties should think very carefully before deciding whether or not to initiate the rent review.

 

Watch out for the interest payments

Rent review clauses in modern leases allow for the rent to be revised either upwards or downwards depending on the determined market rent. Where the passing rent continues to be paid beyond the rent review date, prior to the determination of the market rent, resulting in either an overpayment or underpayment of rent in the interim, both landlords and tenants where applicable should be entitled to receive an interest payment on the difference.

Add a clause in the contract to forfeit interest on delay

Try to avoid a situation where the interest rate on the difference is higher than the bank base rate. Consideration should be given to introducing a provision whereby either party forfeits their right to interest on the difference in rent paid after the review date if there is a delay in initiating the rent review process.

Give yourself time

Avoid strict time limits in the rent review clause (other than in reference to its date and interest rates, if not forfeited as suggested) – these could result in either party losing the ability to negotiate.

Caveat Residential vs Business Leases

Often small business owners who have rented a residential property before assume that a business lease is the same. However, this isn’t the case […]
