What are rent reviews?

Rent reviews are regular contractual agreements between a tenant and their landlord over the rent that is payable for the property they use under the terms of their lease. The rent review process is written into the terms of the lease agreement and if the tenant does not seek professional rent review advice – as many do not – their rent review is likely to be in their landlord's favour, leaving the tenant paying too much rent year after year.

When do rent review negotiations take place?

Rent review negotiations typically happen on a regular cycle throughout the term of the lease – perhaps every three or five years. Most commercial leases include an 'upward only' provision, meaning that even if rental values are lower, your rent cannot decrease. However, this does not mean you cannot save money. Every rent review process is an opportunity for you to cut costs – an opportunity that you can now take full advantage of with Rent Review Expert.

Why get rent review advice?

What influences rent reviews?

Rent reviews are influenced by innumerable factors, some of the most important of which are:

  • The terms of your lease
  • The location of your property
  • The size and configuration of your property
  • The specification of your property
  • The use of your property.
