Break clause advice
Our team of lease advisory experts have dealt with many break clauses over the past 30 years. It is a common theme within the commercial industry that all too often break notices are served incorrectly. Not one break clause is alike. Almost all leases will have different stipulations and must be served correctly to be valid. It is imperative that tenants take advice to ensure that all clauses have been complied with or else the tenant will be held to the end of the term.
