Commercial lease plays a pivotal role in the context of Scotland’s economy, which has seen a steady increase in the number of transactions over the years. And yet, this area of commercial property has received very little statutory regulation, presenting landlords’ and tenants’ solicitors with major challenges and practical uncertainties in relation – in particular – to lease termination.
Come along to this seminar, where our expert speakers will guide you through the main aspects of commercial lease in Scotland and its comparison with English law, the practical issues that landlords and tenants inevitably face when bringing a lease to an end, and the implications of lease termination on the obligations of both parties.
