About this document

This is a not a lease but a license. It does not create a legal interest in land. A license is less formal, and in certain circumstances, very useful. The property owner is effectively saying "OK, you can occupy my property for a while, but I can interrupt at any time and ask you to leave". To a property owner, the plus side is the extra control he retains over the tenant. To the tenant, there is increased flexibility.

This document is exclusively for the use of a director of a company who effectively works. From home and wants to set up provision for claiming home expenses against taxable income.

This document includes minimal and usual provisions in simple format.

What Our Clients Say
  • "I have found Net Lawman perfect for my needs and saved me thousand of dollars in legal fees getting a lawyer to produce these douc's from scratch. I have used three of the Net Lawman doc's to basically write up the NDA, contract, Non Solicitation agreements to a level of being 95% complete and then used my lawyer to sign off. My lawyer even commented how complete these doc's are.

    Thanks guys, great service/product.

    Cheers Dean"

    Colin Poole
  • "I needed an Agreement and Google, as always, was where I headed. I found the Net Lawman site and initially I thought I needed a relationship type Agreement but the Lodger one was absolutely perfect.

    I didn't think it would be so easy so would recommend your website to anybody who was looking for an Agreement to suit their needs."
