I am buying a business which has a lease that has five years left to run. Can the Landlord remove me as a tenant after the five years is up?

A: A tenant who has complied with the terms of the lease has a right of renewal unless:

• The Landlord can show that he intends to redevelop;
• The Landlord offers suitable alternative accommodation; or
• The Lease takes away the renewal rights (this is rarely the case with retail/catering leases).
