Fixed Price Tenant's Lease Review - £395 + VAT

The right commercial lease is the commercial lease that best helps you achieve your specific and individual business objectives.

So while many leases are presented to tenants as a ‘standard’ or ‘template’ document, it is nearly always advisable to seek specialist legal advice to ensure the document is fit for your specific purpose.

AWB’s fixed price commercial tenants’ lease review has been specially designed to provide a fast and effective solution to this requirement for just £395 plus VAT.
