Renewal lease by reference to an existing lease

This standard document allows a renewal lease to be granted of the same premises as those demised by an existing lease. It avoids repeating each individual clause by incorporating the clauses by reference to the existing lease. The renewal lease also includes optional prescribed clauses.

This standard document will not be suitable for use in all cases. For example, if the existing lease is not a reasonably modern commercial market rental lease it will not be appropriate, nor should it be used for a lease of part of the premises let by the existing lease.

See Standard clauses and drafting notes for clauses that can be used to adapt this document.
