Frequently Asked Questions of our Commercial Leases Solicitors in Dublin, Ireland

What is a commercial lease agreement?

A commercial lease agreement is a legally binding contract between a landlord and a tenant that sets out the terms and conditions governing the rental of a commercial property. It outlines the rent, lease duration, responsibilities of both parties and any special clauses.

What are commercial tenants' rights in Ireland after 5 years?

In Ireland, the Landlord and Tenant Act 1980 provides security of tenure to commercial tenants who have been in continuous occupation of a property for five or more years. This means the tenant has the right to request a new lease and cannot be easily evicted by the landlord. The Landlord may, however, seek a renunciation of these rights at the commencement of a lease.

Can you break a commercial lease in Ireland?

This will depend on the terms of the lease itself. Many commercial leases in Ireland may have break clauses that allow either the landlord or the tenant to terminate the lease before its expiry date. The conditions and notice periods for exercising the break clause are typically specified in the lease agreement.

How do I evict a commercial tenant in Ireland?

Evicting a commercial tenant in Ireland involves following specific legal procedures. Typically, the process requires issuing a notice of termination, and if the tenant does not vacate the property voluntarily, the landlord may need to apply to the courts for a possession order.

 

Who pays stamp duty on a commercial lease in Ireland?

In Ireland, the tenant is responsible for paying the stamp duty on a commercial lease. The stamp duty rate is based on the term of the lease and is payable within 44 days of the lease execution.

 

What is the most popular type of commercial lease in Ireland?

The most common type of commercial lease in Ireland is the “Full Repairing and Insuring” (FRI) lease. Under this type of lease, the tenant is responsible for both rent and all property-related costs, including repairs and insurance.

How do I get out of a commercial lease in Ireland?

Getting out of a commercial lease in Ireland can be challenging. If the lease does not have a break clause, the tenant may need to negotiate with the landlord or find a new tenant to assign the lease. Alternatively, seeking legal advice can help explore other options.

Do you pay VAT on commercial rent in Ireland?

As a general rule, commercial rent in Ireland is generally subject to Value Added Tax (VAT) at the standard rate, which is currently 23%. However, some properties or leases may be exempt from VAT or subject to a reduced rate.

Does a commercial lease need to be registered in Ireland?

Yes, commercial leases with a term of over 35 years need to be registered with the Property Registration Authority (PRA) in Ireland. This registration process provides public notice of the lease and protects the tenant’s rights.

What is the process for registering commercial leases in Ireland?

To register a commercial lease in Ireland, the landlord or their solicitor must prepare and submit the necessary documents to the Property Registration Authority (PRA). The registration process creates a public record of the lease and protects the tenant’s interest in the property.

We used Carmody Moran's conveyancing services, and we couldn't have wished for a better solicitor. Caila was extremely professional, responsive and knowledgeable. As first-time buyers, everything was new to us, but she had our back every step of the way, and was looking out for our best interests during the whole process. When things turned difficult on closing date, Caila intervened promptly and sorted everything out for us, even when it looked impossible. We cannot recommend Carmody Moran enough, and we'll surely use them for any future legal affairs we may have!

I was looking for a family law consultation and asked Carmody Moran for one. Unfortunately, they didn't have the capacity, but at least they were nice enough to call me back and reply by email.So the very least you can expect from these specialists is the right attitude (unlike from many others out there on the market), but likely a lot more!

We recently engaged Carmody Moran Solicitors for the purchase of our home, on receiving a recommendation for Caila Ryan specifically. Caila and the team were a pleasure to deal with. Caila was incredibly responsive, efficient and diligent throughout the process. As first time buyers, Caila explained all steps clearly and concisely to us, which eased our stress. Caila and the team went above and beyond for us - and accommodated ad hoc meetings when required. We highly recommend Caila and the team at Carmody Moran.

We recently closed on a first time house purchase and we were very pleased with how the whole process was handled at Carmody Moran. They always responded clearly and promptly to the many queries I had along the way and were on the ball with following up issues with the sellers solicitors to keep the process moving.The reason I went with them originally over other options was because they gave a very clear breakdown for the charges and the quoted price we were given was transparent and easy to understand compared to other quotes I received.I will definitely use them again if the need arises and recommend them to my friends and family.
