    Commercial tenancy agreement or Lease?

    We have a building and land amongst residential buildings that we have been running our own business in for many years. We closed our business a year ago now and would like to rent out the building for a similar business to continue (workshop and meeting venue). Is there an off the shelf tenancy agreement or lease that would suit the job. I think a standard contract like the ones we use for residential tenancies would suit. Is there such a thing or does one have to involve a solicitor to draw up a contract. We would like to retain control over the building's future, i.e. to be able to redevelop it in about 3/4 years.

    If you wish to redevelop it would probably be best to get a solicitor involved anyway so that whatever lease you grant can be contracted outside the 1954 act security provisions so that T does not have automatic rights of renewal. If you did a DIY you would almost certainly not have this luxury as it is quite complex and requires a statutory declaration to be signed.

      Hi Folks,
      I have an empty shop . Someone privately has expressed an interest in in opening a dog grooming parlour for which (I believe) a change of use to sui generis would be required. At present it is A1.
      My question is who should pay for and then apply for planning permission? Should...

      I found that when I was a tenant of Business Premises that with both of my leases (different Local Authorities) that they insisted that I pay them for their Legal Fees for the creation of the leases, And having also been a landlord of shops I would do the following if you dont mind my suggestion....

      I am not surprised you are confused. They keep tinkering with the uses classes. It is difficult to keep up.

      Thank you for your response.
      Through internet searches i too have come to the conclusion that a pet grooming parlour would indeed fall under the new Class E.
      Indeed the Planning Inspectorate at an appeal hearing in 2014 stated that (at the time ) a dog grooming parlour was B1 which now...

      In England class A was abolished in September 2020 and replaced by Class E.
      A dog grooming parlour would not require change of use

      The usual way to deal with this is to enter into an agreement for lease completion of which is conditional on the required planning permission being obtained within an agreed period. The terms will be subject to negotiation, but generally it will be the tenant who (under an obligation to the landlord)...

      Like a lot of legal drafting, a lease by reference is straightforward if the case is straightforward and you know what you are doing. There are points to watch and traps for the unwary.

      Ideally, on a "renewal" the opportunity should be taken to review the terms of the lease to...
