Commercial Leases

Commercial lease solicitors and secretary at ELP Arbuthnott McClanachan

At ELP Arbuthnott McClanachan we represent both landlords and tenants in Edinburgh and across Scotland in drafting and negotiating commercial leases. Commercial leases are very different from standard leases of residential properties, and it is important that our clients are advised properly on a range of important commercial lease clauses.

Our commercial lease solicitors advise our clients on a whole range of commercial lease issues, including rental obligations, deposit agreements, personal guarantees, rent review provisions, repairing and insuring obligations, and notices to quit.

We believe it is crucial for landlords and tenants to take legal advice on commercial leases before entering into them, as the financial and other obligations contained in commercial leases can be significant. However, we appreciate that businesses are not in a position to spend huge sums of money on legal fees for commercial leases, and we, therefore, offer legal fees which are reasonable and offer genuine value for money. We also know that when our landlord and tenant clients are entering into a commercial lease they want to know as accurately as possible what the legal costs will be. Our commercial lease solicitors, therefore, offer a very competitive hourly legal fees rate, but we also provide fixed price fees for individual pieces of commercial lease work in order that our clients know exactly what they will pay.

One of our commercial lease solicitors will be happy to discuss your fees options with you. Of course, we offer the same fees options from our West and East Edinburgh offices.

Hi Catherine, I would like to send our thanks to you and your team for a job well done. We have been extremely happy with way things went and have not held back recommending yourselves to a few of our friends who are looking to move in the near future. If only every company were as professional as Arbuthnott and McClanachan then I’m certain moving would be a lot less stressful.

I was more than happy with the advice and representation which I received from ELP in relation to an employment tribunal dispute with my employers. From start to finish, ELP kept me up to date with any developments regarding my case during what was a stressful 6 months out of work. They also achieved a good result for me in advance of the Tribunal hearing. I would definitely recommend the firm to anyone in similar circumstances.

Tiphereth is a medium sized Edinburgh charity, operating in the voluntary sector, offering care and work opportunities to adults with learning disabilities. We use ELP for legal advice and support in human resource issues, and for assistance in drafting letters, policies and contracts. The arrangement makes sense for us financially and is good value for money. ELP have been consistently helpful to our organisation over several years, offering clear legal advice on a wide spectrum of issues, and often doing so at very short notice.

I would like to express my gratitude towards you for the professional, courteous, efficient, and helpful manner in which you conducted yourself within the business of dealing with myself and the sale of my property. You are a credit to yourself and the people that you represent.

We used ELP for both buying and selling based on personal recommendation. They are up to date with the current state of the market and gave us good advice on what to offer so we were very happy with what we paid for our new flat. When it came to selling the photographers they used for the Home Report were excellent and very painstaking. The schedule they produced was upbeat and attractive. ELP staff gave us regular feedback on the progress of the sale and were always contactable. They offered a highly professional service while at the same time they were friendly and treated us as individuals. A very personal service.

Ian was the best in helping me out after I contacted him with an employment law issue. I contacted a few solicitors in Edinburgh via their online web forms and Ian replied to me within minutes of my query which was excellent! Other solicitors I contacted at the same time either didn’t reply at all or replied weeks later which was not helpful!

Ian was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable – never too busy to reply to my emails when I was looking for information, and occasional reassurance. I had an initial call with Ian, then a face to face in the office and after that most contact was by email which suited me perfectly. Ian was professional at all times and really made me feel valued as a client. His hard work resulted in a favourable result for me, and I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone. If I ever need a solicitor again in the future, Ian will be the first person I contact. Thank you!
