  • the law society business lease full repairing?

    Is the law society lease (whole building)a full repair lease. My tenant requires a roof repair and asking me to do it....

    It should be limited by a schedule of condition. Without such a schedule, I suspect that the onus of proof would fall on the Landlord.

    See clause 5.1 "To maintain the state and condition of the property but the tenant need not improve it except as required in clause 5.7

      It is a somewhat watered down version of a full repairing lease however the whole of building lease doesnot require the landlord to renew the roof but places the liability to repair at the tenants feet. If it is not possible to repair with a patch, renewal might be the only viable method of repair. The other version, for part of building introduces a service charge and in that version roof repair is a landlord duty albeit that contribution toward cost may be recovered through the service charge mechanism
      Which clause is the basis for this theory?

        landing
        Hello,

        I see on rightmove several interesting commercial properties. The price they mention is it for the lease remaning or there are additional costs involved?
        Also, can I rent out the shop to others?

        Thanks!

        Commercial property leasehold investment can be lucrative - provided you know what you are doing.

        The short answer to the op's first question is yes probably. When wanting to assign an existing lease, the tenant would request the landlord's consent and would normally be required to pay...

        A Statement of Agreed Facts is not a unilateral agreement. You would need to contact the other side or their advisers if any) and get their input.

        A SOAF is a binding contract so should be worded carefully. Anything that cannot be agreed should be left out of the SOAF.

        Once...

        "He is now saying that our agreement 1, and agreement 2 dont count as it was his son that sent the texts and emails - not him."

        I would think that's irrelevant. The son was acting as agent and an agent can bind the principal. The question is whether having regard to the circumstances...

        I would agree. What is your solicitor saying on this matter?

        I would be telling the landlord that as his son acted on his behalf, it is as if he had made the agreement himself, so therefore you consider the agreement to stand. If he feels there is further liability he should take this up...

        I would think that is irrelevant. His son would've been acting as agent and an agent can bind his principal (the landlord). The question is whether from the circumstances ostensible authority would be implied.

        Sounds like the landlord is trying to wriggle out and you and/or your legal...
