It’s always best to seek advice from professionals who can navigate the Chinese practices on your behalf. The key things to consider include:
Rent reviews: most leases allow the landlord periodically (typically every 2 years) to increase the rent.
Rent-free periods: the length of any rent-free period will depend on the overall terms of any transaction.
Lease length: 5 to 15 years is typical, although break clauses can be negotiated.
Insurance and repairs: a professional team should make sure that your premises are in good condition, and negotiate insurance and repair liabilities.
Ancillary costs: explore rates, value-added tax, stamp duty, Land Registry fees and service charges on multi-tenanted buildings.
