A property consultant’s main function isto find you the most suitable property and then negotiate the best financial terms on your behalf.

Usually incorporates: rent, rent free period (& other incentives); lease type, length & start date; rent review & break option provisions; services & service charge; guarantees & rental deposit; obligations etc
The main role of your solicitor will be to ensure that the office lease terms which you or your agent have negotiated are reflected in the final lease. Importantly, they will negotiate the detail of the lease documentation to minimise your exposure to potential liabilities, and subsequently, to advise you on the legal implications of the detailed lease terms in the final documents to ensure you are aware of your ongoing responsibilities.
