About this business premises lease

This short term lease should be used for letting offices or other rooms above a shop or other commercial premises. The tenants shouldn't share services or facilities. If they do, Net Lawman provides a more suitable lease agreement (see below).

  • standard guarantor
  • options for transfer or assignment to another party

The law in this office lease

This lease is regulated primarily by:

  • 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.
