At Mylako Chartered Surveyors our property consultants have a proven track record of negotiating favourable rent reviews on behalf of both commercial tenants and landlords. Our team have arbitrated successful results on behalf of clients in the industrial, commercial and retail sectors. We have extensive specialist knowledge of UK property law and lease agreements, and so are well placed to work on your behalf to challenge unfair rent reviews and negotiate an equitable settlement for both landlord and tenant.

Recognising the complexity of many rent review clauses, we provide a sympathetic and bespoke service that takes into account the specific terms and context of your rental agreement. We are pleased to work with all commercial clients in the UK, as well as international tenants with a property lease in the UK.

What are rent reviews?

If you are a commercial tenant with a property lease of 3 to 5 years or more, then your contract will probably include regular rent reviews. For offices and industrial premises, these usually take place at intervals of three or five years. Although called a ‘review’, in practice these invariably involve rent increases – sometimes by a considerable amount. Contrary to the practice in other countries, in the UK the majority of rent reviews are upward only, and do not take into account money invested by the tenant into maintaining or improving the property.
While most commercial landlords review rent increases in a sustainable and responsible way, unfortunately there are also instances of disproportionate rent increases that do not take into account the interests of the tenant or local market. If this has happened to you, and you are undergoing a dispute with your landlord over a rent review, then our team can help find a fair solution for all parties involved.

How can we help you?

Our goal is to achieve a quick settlement of your rent review dispute through negotiation. We aim to achieve the best outcome for you, while also preserving an amicable working relationship with your landlord.

There are three keys to a successful resolution that our team brings to bear when negotiating a rent review on your behalf:

  1. Knowledge of your lease terms and any clauses that may affect the rent review. These can include break causes, alienation provisions, building service charges and other lease terms.
  2. Knowledge of your local market and area. Our team conduct extensive market research that allow us to compare rent reviews over time to understand what can reasonably be expected.
  3. Expert communication skills. Our experience of negotiating with landlords and tenants at all levels gives us the confidence to sensitively handle your case and to bring about a favourable conclusion to your dispute.
