Your Questions Answered

What types of problems does LeaseProbe detect?

Some of the problems LeaseProbe reports on are:

  • Some charges are included in Outgoings which are not normally paid by the tenant.
  • No lease renewal clause in the lease.
  • Missing an obligation on the landlord to provide advance notice of entry onto premises.
  • No requirement for the landlord to return the bank guarantee upon termination of the lease.
  • No right to play music at the premises.
  • No right to assign the lease or grant a licence to another company.
  • Unusual indemnities.
  • Other clauses that are missing, by reference to our database of similar leases

Of course, we are not aware of the parties' commercial objectives or personal circumstances in entering into a particular lease. So things that seem wrong to us may be acceptable. Equally, since we don’t know these things we can’t guarantee that the draft lease is in fact fit for purpose. LeaseProbe gives you information about the draft lease which you can then use to help in finalising the lease.

How much does it cost?

Our prices are based on the number of leases you expect to review. Regular users are likely to find our monthly subscription packages more economical. Other users may want to buy a pack of 5 or 10 lease reviews. Contact us with the details of your requirements and we’ll get back to you promptly with a quote.

Can we tailor the product to suit your requirements?

LeaseProbe can be tailored in a wide number of ways. If you already have a playbook, we can incorporate its requirements into our tool. If not, we can work with you to identify and integrate your requirements. If you require specific wordings in your leases, then we can include them (you will retain all intellectual property in that text and it will be used only for your benefit).

How long will it take to receive my report?

Less than a minute.

Can you trust us with your information?

When you upload your documents, they are encrypted in transit using a 2048-bit SSL Certificate. That is the highest generally available form of web encryption. In addition, the cloud service provider we use complies with strict security controls, including ISO 27001, 27017 and 27018. We also apply promptly all security patches and updates from our operating system providers.

What type of lease does LeaseProbe review?

At present, LeaseProbe only reviews retail leases. However we plan to expand this offering in the future. Please let us know if there is a particular type of lease that you come across regularly and would like to have LeaseProbe review.

Do we review leases for landlords?

For the present, LeaseProbe will only review leases for tenants.

What file formats and browsers does LeaseProbe accept?

LeaseProbe handles files submitted in docx, doc and txt format and pdfs which allow their text to be selected. The ability to download a mark-up of the original document which includes the comments and draft clauses you had marked for inclusion only applies for docx files. If the contract contains track changes or revision marks, please accept them all before uploading.

LeaseProbe cannot process pdfs which have been scanned. If you can't “select” text in a pdf then LeaseProbe will not be able to process it.

LeaseProbe works best under Chrome. However we also support the latest version of most other common browsers.

Do we provide legal advice?

No. As we aren’t aware of the parties' objectives or circumstances, we are not providing legal advice.

What does the score mean?

The score is calculated using a number of factors, including the extent to which the lease includes clauses that seem unusual to us in this type of lease and the number of problems that we have detected.

Does a score of 10/10 mean a lease is fine for me to sign?

Unfortunately not. As we said above, we aren’t aware of the parties' objectives or circumstances and so can’t guarantee that even a draft lease that seems perfect to us is in fact fit for your purposes.
