Our services

Technical and business-focused advice

When developing a strategy to achieve our clients' objectives, BNP Paribas Real Estate considers a number of factors including the impact of lease covenants, legislation and case law to get the whole picture. Our lease advisory services include:

 

  • Rent reviews

Maximising rental returns for landlords, and minimising exposure for tenants including strategic advice on the service of calderbank offers.

 

  •  Lease renewals

Our lease experts have an excellent understanding of the Landlord and Tenant Act, 1954, including interim rent, notice procedures and grounds of opposition. When providing advice to a client on a lease expiry, we combine technical and market knowledge by liaising with our transactional experts to guarantee that every option is considered. This ensures the best result possible on lease re-negotiations.

 

  • Dispute resolution, arbitration and expert witness

We can draw on our extensive experience in giving expert evidence in Court and at Arbitration to aid a resolution at a rent review or lease renewal dispute.  Several members of our team are regularly appointed as third parties to determine rent disputes either as Independent Experts or as Arbitrators.

 

  • Lease restructuring

We advise on the regear of leases, offering careful analysis in order to maximise value, align with your business strategy and release value.  We regularly advise on the removal or deferral of break options as well as lease extensions, extracting the best return for our clients.

 

  • Dilapidations

We provide advice on s.18 diminution in value issues that can influence the level of dilapidations claims at the expiration of a lease.

 

  • Property types

Our lease advisory services cover a wide range of property types including offices and business parks, industrial and warehouse, pubs and restaurants and other leisure, town centre shops, shopping centres and out of town retail, and medical centres.
