About this lease

This lease should be used to let an industrial unit such as a workshop, factory, depot or warehouse that shares common facilities and services with other units let by the landlord to different tenants. Commonly, this lease would be used for a unit on a small- to medium-sized industrial estate or business park. Paragraphs within this lease provide for recovery of service charges.

The document has been drawn to help protect the landlord's interests as greatly as possible.

Key features

Plain English is used throughout except where it is necessary to use legal terms common in this field of law.

The key features of this template can be summarised as:

  • term of 5 years or under (often called a short term lease)
  • standard guarantor
  • service charge provisions - specifically written for a unit that is part of an industrial estate or business park
  • options for transfer or assignment to another party
  • sub-letting forbidden
  • option to include a break clause for premature termination by the tenant
  • a choice of options for rent reviews
  • a draft agreement for a security deposit has also been included

This document has been drawn so as to make it applicable to the vast majority of leasing scenarios without making it difficult to edit.

  • the Landlord and Tenant Acts 1860-2005;

In balancing the codes with the law and the interest of the Landlord, we have followed the codes where reasonable, but have preferred the interest of the Landlord where there may be a difference.

I found your information excellent. The way you kept on contacting me was good. I decided not to use an agreement for what I want to do. Thank you for the information, I will remove it from my computer.

I wasn't sure which document was the most appropriate so I emailed an explanation of my needs. Often you never even receive a reply, but I got a very helpful email the next working day with suggestions of appropriate documents. The person who replied also offered to send me a second document free of charge if I was still unsure. Excellent service.
