Malta Commercial Leases Assistance

Chetcuti Cauchi Advocates CCMalta default banner


Upholding its reputation as a business-friendly environment, Malta does not pose restrictions on who may enter into commercial leases, opening up a window of opportunities for start-ups or expanding businesses. However, Maltese law requires that parties entering into a lease agreement set out clearly the conditions on which the premises are being leased.

Negotiating the Lease

Chetcuti Cauchi helps prospective lessees identify the ideal type of lease for their business, including the lease term, rent payments, rent renewal and the possibility of expansion of premises at a later stage. Acting as a one-stop-shop, Chetcuti Cauchi has helped prospective lessors and lessees convene with real estate agents and negotiate on behalf of lessors or lessees the best terms against which the property is leased.

Drafting the Lease Agreement

Benefitting from years of experience, Chetcuti Cauchi drafts agreements for the lease of retail outlets, offices, hotels, catering establishments, factories, warehouses or other commercial units. In addition, the multi-disciplinary team at Chetcuti Cauchi also assists with the attainment of the necessary permits so that commercial activity may take place in the premises.
