  • ----------------------

  • What are the key issues to consider regarding commercial leases?

    Key issues in commercial leases include the length of the lease, rent amount and review mechanisms, obligations for repairs and maintenance, subletting and assignment rights, termination clauses, and implications of breaking the lease early. Understanding these factors is essential to ensure the lease terms align with your business needs and provide the necessary flexibility for future growth and changes.

  • ----------------------

  • Do commercial leases have to be registered?

    In Ireland, it is a legal requirement for tenants of commercial properties to register their leases with the Property Services Regulatory Authority (PSRA), which oversees the property services sector. Upon finalising and signing a commercial lease, as a tenant, you must ensure that the PSRA is provided with key details of the lease. This includes the address of the property, the date when the lease was signed, the duration of the tenancy, and the amount of rent agreed upon. This registration is an essential step in complying with regulatory standards and securing your tenancy rights.
