About this business premises lease

This is a comprehensive but uncomplicated business premises lease for a separate letting of office or storage space above a shop or other workspace.

This short term lease should be used for letting offices or other rooms above a shop or other commercial premises. There is no provision for service charge recovery.

This is a professionally drawn, very comprehensive lease with massive legal protection for the landlord including a long menu of “do’s” and “don’ts”.

This lease is not a compromise between the interests of the parties. It prefers the landlord’s interest. We think that is the best start point. If you wish to make concessions to your tenant, that is fine, but we want you have those choices.

It includes service charge provisions to provide 100% recovery of service costs.

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"

  • "Yes the document was very useful, easy to read and understand and contained everything I needed. I will definitely refer to your site in the future. "

    Vicky Gregory
  • "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."
