1. Rent review mechanisms

Where possible, put a cap on increases in market rent reviews.

2. Assignment of Lease provisions

Ensure they are not overly restrictive and allow you to sell your business easily.

3. Description of the use of the premises

Try to make the description broad so that the premises can be used for a variety of purposes.

4. Length of term

Consider the use of options.

5. Flexibility with space

Options and first rights of refusal over additional space can provide you with flexibility to increase the size of your premises.

6. Repairs and maintenance

Ensure the landlord pays for capital and structural items.

7. Make good

Try and limit your make good obligations so your end of lease expenses are kept to a minimum.
