Dealing with a commercial property rent review or lease renewal requires a combination of technical and business acumen.

Identifying and associating opportunities with lease renewal rights and rent review clause will undoubtedly have an impact on the renewal rental value and this can be ascertained via technical skills in lease interpretation, knowledge of relevant legislation, case law and best practices.

This must also be balanced during negotiations to reach a successful settlement and to avoid conflict whereby property professionals must have an understanding of negotiation strategy and employ client care skills.

Combining the elements described above, this course will introduce you to commercial property rent reviews and lease renewals, as well as to the options and procedures of dispute resolution in the event of a breakdown in negotiations.

It also provides essential knowledge for professionals starting their career in this complex and fulfilling specialist area.
