About this lease

This lease is for a shop with a flat over. The shop will usually be in a parade.

The tenant could use the commercial space for any purpose including:

  • conventional retail of goods
  • restaurant or cafe
  • provision of services such as PC repair or estate agency

The shop may or may not have additional rooms used by the tenant for other business purposes, such as offices or storage.

If the shop is not part of a parade, the relevant paragraphs can be deleted easily and obviously.

The lease has been drawn to prefer the interest of the landlord rather than the tenant.
