Renegotiating the terms of the lease contract

As soon as two years before the expiration of an existing agreement, the tenant can start negotiating the terms or searching for new space. The short period reserved for formalities is disadvantageous to investors, as they cannot readily secure a satisfactory deal, and the tenant has the right to reject the suggested terms.

Thanks to the experience of JLL consultants, each stage of negotiation with the lessor brings tangible results. In addition, their market knowledge makes it possible to compare many competing offers. The huge amount of current data about the opportunities awaiting tenants in various regions of Poland gives JLL experts a considerable advantage when renegotiating contracts and enables them to comprehensively address the needs of every Client.
