From the Irish Times, a story of cutting losses and getting out of a lease.
Note they paid almost 2 years rental…up-front…to leave a unit in which there appears to be huge interest for a number of smaller retail units from top international traders, at a higher rent than Arnotts were paying!.
Poor negotiation, I would say.
If the demand is that high, why not sub-let?
Or at least do a better deal to escape from the lease.
