Lease Agreements

We have developed extensive experience in the negotiation of leases and fully understand the complexities of hospitality businesses that require lease agreements. Lease assistance may be required for the renewal of a lease, agreement of a new lease with a developer or a sale and leaseback arrangement. Core elements of our assistance with negotiation of leases include:

  • Detailed operating projections of the business based either on historic performance of modeling of a new enterprise.
  • We assume a conservative approach to our projections and take into consideration all of  the associated risks with leases.
  • Determine associated industry benchmarks for leases based on a percentage of revenue and EBITDA.
  • Highlight the risks and achieve the most efficient and favorable lease terms on behalf of our clients by combining our hospitality and property development insight.
  • Undertake draft and proposed lease due diligence.

We undertake detailed financial modelling incorporating a range of risk scenarios to ensure that lease terms are robust and realistic.
