The Law Society has released new short form model leases for use by solicitors, with the aim of helping to streamline commercial property negotiations.

The new leases are intended for use in short lets of up to 10 years with one rent review. Existing leases will remain available for use, however they are suitable only for the simplest commercial lettings.

The new leases are available for free on the Law Society’s online bookshop and from most legal smart form suppliers.
