About this workshop lease
This comprehensive lease is for letting a stand-alone workshop, factory, warehouse or light industrial unit which does not share services with any other unit. The building could be used for anything: from a car repair garage to a machining workshop to an aircraft hangar.
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.
Similar lease agreements
There is no provision for service charge recovery in this document. If you need this, perhaps because the unit shares services with others or is part of an industrial estate, see Business lease: industrial unit on business park.
If the property will be used as offices, Self contained office lease agreement may be more appropriate.
If the property is mainly land, with plant or buildings, Business lease: land, either vacant or with plant or buildings may be more appropriate.
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:
- 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.

"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.
