About this lease
This lease has been drawn for letting a unit on an industrial estate or business park. The use could be for any purpose, such as a workshop, factory, depot or warehouse. The unit could be one of a block under one roof or a stand-alone building. The lease includes the use of shared services on the park or estate, such as security, access roads, signs and parking and many other practical points. All the features you would expect and many practical options. Full service charge provisions are included.
This is a professionally drawn, very comprehensive lease with massive legal protection for the landlord including a long menu of “do’s” and “don’ts”.
This lease is not a compromise between the interests of the parties. It prefers the landlord’s interest. We think that is the best start point. If you wish to make concessions to your tenant, that is fine, but we want you have those choices.
It includes service charge provisions to provide 100% recovery of service costs.

The law in this lease
Commercial leases differ significantly from residential leases. Residential leases are highly regulated. In contrast, commercial leases are governed chiefly by common law and are very loosely regulated. The rights and obligations of the landlord and tenant are mainly a matter of agreement between the parties. There are no statutory requirements to register your lease, but either party may register a lease of three years or more.

I didn't think it would be so easy so would recommend your website to anybody who was looking for an Agreement to suit their needs."Wendy Auger
