About this shop lease

This lease should be used to let a shop or retail unit that does not share services or facilities with neighbouring units owned by the same landlord. The shop itself may be part of a parade of other shops owned by other landlords, or it may be stand-alone. Of importance is that the landlord does not need to recover service charges from the tenant.

The tenant could use the shop for any purpose including:

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

The shop may or may not have additional space used by the tenant for other business purposes, such as offices or storage. This lease does not cover additional space used for residential use by the tenant, although Net Lawman does provide one that does (see below).

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
  • 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

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 law in this shoplease

This lease is regulated primarily by:

  • the Landlord and Tenant Acts 1860-2005;
  • in particular the Landlord and Tenant (Amendment) Act 1980; and
  • the Landlord and Tenant (Amendment) Act 1994

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.
